A beautiful thatched pub near Blandford

Situated on the A31 between Poole and Dorchester, the World’s End is a beautiful traditional, thatched country pub, just oozing character.


Whilst the original part of the pub dates back to the 14th Century and was once the oldest pub in Dorset, the pub was sympathetically rebuilt in 1991 after a fire, so although it looks 400 years old it isn’t. Indeed, the ceiling of the original Worlds End was adorned with the signatures of many American servicemen who visited while waiting for D-Day and these are now commemorated by the framed signatures on the current ceiling.


Today the pub combines an extensive outside patio area, ideal for the summer, with a traditional interior featuring oak beams, log fires and cosy eating areas for guests to relax and unwind.  

Opening Times

Monday - Saturday: 10:30am - 10pm
Sunday: 11:30am - 9:30pm

One cannot think well, love well, sleep well, if one has not dined well.
