Visited the Springhead today after a long walk with the dogs. Not only were the dogs welcomed, fed and watered but we also had a delicious carvery. Great food, great service and lovely location. What more could you ask for?

The Springhead Pub and Restaurant is located at the heart of the small Dorset village of Sutton Poyntz. Quietly tucked away beneath the chalk downs, the village has a unique beauty which awaits discovery, a mile from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, and only 3 miles north-west of Weymouth town centre.
