The Red Lion

Winfrith, Dorchester, Dorset, DT2 8LE

A family-run Dorset inn near the stunning Jurassic Coast 

The Red Lion is a delightfully authentic west-country pub in the Dorset village of Winfrith. With its rustic charm, the pub offers a friendly welcome to all and is an ideal base for exploring the natural beauty of the surrounding area and popular local attractions, including the nearby Lulworth Cove and Durdle Door.

Set in the heart of Thomas Hardy’s countryside, the Red Lion is open throughout the year. In winter, warming log fires keep things toasty, whilst in the summer the attractive garden invites picturesque alfresco dining. When it comes to food, the menu is full of hearty favourites, seasonal surprises and exceptional desserts — a little something for everyone. And with five en-suite bedrooms, the Red Lion is perfectly located for staying a few nights to explore the Dorset coast.
