Discover the magic of Thomas Hardy country stretching from the rural inland delights to where the sea most exerts its influence. Much effort has gone into restoring our beloved inns, many are hundreds of years old and some would even have been known to Hardy himself. Each of the eight hostelries offers a distinctive character and timeless charm.
Some have a very close connection to the land and the production of good honest British food, others have pleasant walks from the door and many have country parks, heritage attractions and picturesque hamlets nearby.

Wherever you choose, you'll find our inns will serve a full menu of traditional British favourites seven days a week - and at each one you'll enjoy the best of British hospitality. The Vintage Inns of Hardy Country and Coast offer roaring log fires and a warm welcome on a cold day and gardens in which to enjoy sunshine, a cold drink and beautiful rural views on a balmy summer evening.
