Nestled in the village of Child Okeford, tucked away from the road, you will find the traditional Saxon Inn. Steeped in history, located in the Blackmore Vale in North Dorset.  The Saxon Inn is easily accessible from Shaftesbury, the Jurassic Coast, Poole and Dorchester.


Here at the Saxon Inn we offer a wide range of freshly cooked dishes.  From pub classics and light bites to more adventurous dishes on our ever changing specials board.

We are passionate about using local, seasonal produce and have close relationships with our suppliers ensuring the highest quality.


In the summer months you can enjoy al fresco dining in our large secluded pub garden. In the colder months why not relax by the open fire in our cosy bar.


The Pub is only a short walk away from a network of picturesque walks including Hambledon Hill and the North Dorset Trailway.


The Saxon Inn is a perfect place to stay for a weekend away in North Dorset, with 3 en-suite B&B rooms available.

Eat, Drink, Stay

traditional country pub, restaurant, and B&B. Real ales, local cider, fresh, home cooked food, and a warm welcome all await you here!

Our 2 indoor eating areas are great for a family gathering, or a meal for 2. We are also able to hold large functions and offer a private area. Our food is locally sourced where possible and our impressive specials board changes most days as fresh produce is key to our home cooked range. Our large & quiet beer garden is great for a meal or a drink in the sun!


Follow our Saxon Cellar on Instagram for the latest guest ales and ciders on tap, we always strive to find local and unusual ales as well as taking requests and suggestions! Our dog friendly bar has an open fire and has recently been refurbished.
