The George, Chideock
The George Inn in Chideock Just a short walk from Warren House, the newly-renovated George Inn is well-known for its good food and well-kept Palmers beer. On cold days, you can warm yourself by the log fires and eat comforting winter dishes from the specials menu, or on sunny days, sit outside to enjoy lighter fare like pan fried dishes with fresh seasonal salads or vegetables.
The regular menu offers a full range of sandwiches, ploughman’s, starters and mains with an emphasis on hand-picked local produce and seasonality; traditional Sunday roasts; and wood-fired pizza nights – choose your own combination of favourite toppings.
The George is open every day, and serves food from 12 to 2.30pm and 6 to 9.30pm; Thursday night pizzas are available from 6 to 9.30pm. We recommend you book a table as the pub is always popular with locals and visitors alike.
The Anchor Inn, Seatown
The Anchor at Seatown This award-winning pub is set in a magnificent location just a few steps from the beach at Seatown – just the place to recuperate after a walk up nearby Golden Cap! It’s only 20 minutes walk from Warren House B&B, and serves an imaginative menu featuring local seafood, meat and vegetables, sometimes including the chef’s speciality of locally-foraged wild food ingredients. Catering for meat-eaters, fish-lovers and vegetarians alike, the seasonal menu offers a range of gourmet dishes, as well as filled rolls, ploughmen’s’ lunches, and children’s dishes that make them feel grown-up!
To drink, you can choose real ale from Palmers, house cocktails, or browse the extensive wine and spirits list for unusual tipples.
The Anchor is open every day and serves food from noon till 9pm. It gets very crowded especially on sunny days in season, so you are advised to book a table.

It’s a traditional English freehouse selling a range of local beers and ciders , with skittles, darts and table football if you fancy some entertainment.
Hearty home-made pub food is on offer in large and small portions, plus a wide range of gluten-free and vegetarian dishes, catch of the day and chef’s specials. The triple-cooked chips are a favourite after a bracing walk! Lighter dishes include sandwiches, baguettes, and jacket potatoes.
