Hidden away in the pretty village of Stourton Caundle in the Blackmore Vale, The Trooper Inn is a traditional pub dating from the 17th century – yet with a modern feel.
Off the beaten track, on a quiet village lane, The Trooper Inn is a well kept secret in the heart of the north Dorset countryside – with real ales, good food and great atmosphere!
We have a separate function room with its own bar which, in previous times, was a cider house.
Visitors will find our pub friendly, welcoming and cosy – home from home.

There is a sense of timelessness, surrounded by nature, with the ancient Dorset coastline an hour’s drive away.
From the Napoleonic Wars (and before) to Enid Blyton, the village is rich in history.We are close to areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Special Scientific Interest, with a diversity of wildlife.
And in the summer, our swallows and martins are a delight to watch while sitting outside with a pint.We are about an hour's drive from the sea. The dramatic coastline is a World Heritage Site, with sandy coves, dog-friendly beaches, cliff walks, cycle trails and the wilder Chesil Beach and Portland Bill.
