Proud to Serve Locally Brewed West Dorset Drinks

Our cosy bar in Swanage has a friendly atmosphere, making it the ideal spot to unwind and enjoy a  drink or two after a long day of exploring Swanage. We have a wide selection of delicious drinks available, including beers, wines, spirits, and soft drinks.
What makes us different from many other pubs in Swanage, is our dedication to supporting local suppliers! We proudly serve real ales from the renowned Palmers brewery, a family-run establishment with over 200 years of award-winning ale brewing in Bridport. For whiskey enthusiasts, we have the delightful Golden Cap whiskey, carefully aged and blended right here in West Dorset.


In addition to our impressive drink selection, we offer a wide array of wines from various parts of the world that pair perfectly with our food menu at The Village Inn. If you’re looking to mark a special moment, we also offer a lovely assortment of sparkling wines by either. the glass or bottle- – which is the perfect way to mark a celebration!


Family-Friendly Bar in Swanage

Our bar has an extremely welcoming ambience, offering a bright and spacious area which is  perfect for socialising or having a relaxed drink with your friends and family. During the delightful summer months, feel free to take your drink  outside and soak up the sunshine on our lovely outdoor patio. Our outdoor patio has multiple seats and large sun umbrellas, making it the perfect spot to enjoy you drink as you soak up the beautiful scenery of Swanage in the distance. Later in the year when the winter chill sets in, we would like to extend a warm invitation to all guests to gather around our cosy log-burning fire for a delightful and snug experience.
