About The Countryman Inn

Everything you’d expect from a great local pub

Everything you’d expect from a great local pub

The Countryman’s peaceful location and warm welcome makes us a firm favourite with locals and holidaymakers alike (along with their four-legged friends – who are always welcome!).

The pub has excellent transport links, being just a five minute drive or taxi from Wool Train Station, on the A352 between Dorchester and Wareham, and we’re about the same distance from England’s south coast – where you’ll find magical views and some great walks.

We like to think our pub has the feel of what a local pub is all about – we’re family friendly, happy to cater for events and hope the Countryman will feel like your home from home every time you visit.

Crab Shack

The Crab Shack is our little hidden gem, tucked away in the corner of our beautiful beer garden.

At the Crab Shack you can enjoy a small range of bites, including our delicious Crab Open Sandwich with white & brown crab meat and our famous House Crab Shack Sauce.

You can even enjoy our Skin-On Dirty Chips, topped with crab and our house sauce! And if crab isn’t for you, you can also treat yourself to our scampi or succulent southern fried chicken!

So, are you looking to dine in an idyllic setting just four miles from the famous Jurassic Coast? The Crab Shack is the authentic seaside pub experience.
