In 2006 we converted our old 1960s skittle ally which was the original cow sheds into a modern purpose built function venue, now known as the Purbeck Lounge.
Situated to the side and rear of The New Inn but linked with a covered walkway to the main bars, the room opens onto a patio seating area and our large family beer garden with stunning views over the Purbecks.
The Purbeck Lounge has a fully stocked bar with seating for 80 plus patrons using modern banqueting furniture to provide table plans to suit each individual function.
The Lounge also provides a dance floor and stage - an ideal wedding venue; Dorset business and corporate functions; private family gatherings.
All for exclusive private hire.
We offer a variety of tailor made menus and drinks packages to suit every pocket from light finger buffets, to elaborate sit down meals.
In the summer months this room is used as an over-flow from the Pub and can be pre-booked for larger groups and Families.
Our Wedding Co-ordinator will design your menu and day to your personal requirements and budget.
Our wedding venue is set in the rolling Purbeck Hills in the beautiful village of Church Knowle in Dorset, with a lawned garden for those special group photographs, large car park, covered patio, facilities for a marquee wedding in our grounds (marquee hire available on request).
In addition our Co-ordinator can organise and offer
Car for the Bride
Our own DJ and Disco for Evening Function
