Make your seaside staycation extra-special and stop by The Castle Inn for a pint. Whether you’re exploring the Jurassic Coast, visiting Lulworth Cove, Lulworth Castle, or Durdle Door, you deserve a break. Indulge with a refreshing pint of award-winning Butcombe beers, a glass of fine wine, or your favourite tipple, in the beautiful courtyard terrace, or cosy up inside the 16th-century inn with a delicious, locally-sourced classic pub meal.

The Avon Causeway

Enjoy a pint of proper Butcombe beer at the Avon Causeway pub, a converted 18th-century coaching inn. Take a break and soak up the sun in the pleasant beer garden, or warm up next to a crackling open fire indoors, perfect for winter months. Stay for a bite to eat at the restaurant serving locally-sourced produce, or stay for a little longer in the country-chic accommodation.

The Pavilion Arms

Quench your thirst after exploring Bournemouth’s famous beaches and take a break in the pleasant beer garden at The Pavilion Arms gastropub, with a vast range of award-winning Butcombe beers, wines, spirits and non-alcoholic tipples behind the bar. Stay for a bite to eat, if you’re feeling peckish, with a menu chock-full of bar snacks, hearty classic pub dishes, and decadent desserts.

Goat & Tricycle

A favourite of Bournemouth locals, the Goat & Tricycle pub is at the heart of the town centre, close to the Triangle – a perfect place for an alfresco pint of award-winning Butcombe beer. Catch the big game, watch local musicians perform, or just enjoy a delicious, home-cooked classic British meal in a cosy, welcoming atmosphere.
