Winner of the Dorset Dining Pub of the Year 2017 (The Good Pub Guide), The Brace of Pheasants is a charming thatched-roof AA-4-star inn located in Plush, a village surrounded by open countryside.

Nearby attractions include the famous Cerne Abbas Giant, Athelhampton House and Gardens, and the Dinosaur Museum (in Dorchester), all within a 20-minute drive from the hotel.

Half of the eight stylish rooms are above the pub, while the others are in a separate building; those inside the original building retain period features such as exposed beams and window seats, while those in the adjacent building feature an outdoor patio area. Each is individually decorated and comes with an ensuite bathroom, a flat-screen TV, tea- and coffee-making equipment, and a complimentary cooked breakfast.

The pub features real ales and dishes made with locally sourced produce. There's also a sun terrace and a garden. Free Wi-Fi is available.
