Butcombe Brewery is to reopen The Castle Inn in Dorset, following its extensive 3-month refurbishment that turned the traditional thatched pub into a stylish destination inn.
The popular 16th century pub and hotel will be ready to welcome its first guests on 28 of March, just in time for Easter.
The Castle Inn, which features 12 en-suite bedrooms, each designed individually, lies just a few minutes away from the stunning Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage site.
Head Chef Ashley Walcott will bring his experience, which includes working at the celebrated Fat Duck in Bray under Heston Blumenthal, into the kitchen.
The restaurant will boast a daily-changing market menu with grill and seafood at its centre, as well as showcasing delicious Dorset produce sourced from within 30 miles from the restaurant.
Perfect, Managing Director at Butcombe Pubs and Inns, said, “The Castle Inn is an incredibly special property close to the hearts of locals and the frequent visitors to this beautiful corner of Dorset’s coastline, so we knew that the renovation had to preserve the distinct character of the property and do its heritage justice.
'We can’t wait to open its doors and show everyone exactly what we’ve been working so hard to create.”
