The Museum Inn


The Museum Inn has eight beautifully appointed double en-suite rooms, four in the pub itself and a further four in the old Stables. With low ceilings, flagstone floors and a roaring log fire, the Museum bar has a cosy, traditional feel with a relaxing ambiance that ensures a steady stream of local clientele. Salisbury and its cathedral are only a 30-minute drive away, whilst the beautiful hillside town of Shaftesbury is only 20 minutes.

Where is The Museum Inn located?

The Museum Inn is a superb 17th Century country inn situated in the delightful village of Farnham, Dorset, on the glorious Cranborne Chase, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a renowned countryside pursuit destination. The Museum Inn also sits 2 miles away from the historic Rushmore Park, an area of lawn and open woodland home to the Rushmore Golf Club.

What cuisine is on offer at The Museum Inn?

The menus offer traditional British cuisine with an elegant twist and change depending on the seasonality and availability of local ingredients. The Museum Inn invites you to dine on classic dishes such as beer-battered haddock with triple cooked chips throughout the summer and they turn their attention in the winter to more hearty dishes like seared venison with fondant potatoes. The inn offers a wide selection of imported drafts and local beers as well as an extensive wine list.

What makes a meal at The Museum Inn unique?

The Head Chef Simon Trepess is an accomplished fisherman, who bakes his own bread, makes his own cheese and still finds time to get up early and catch local game when in season so you can expect that every plate on the Museum Inn menu is as fresh as it can be and is expertly crafted with a passion for the local countryside.
