Arguably the most beautiful pub-restaurant in Dorset, The Old Granary is sat on the banks of the River Frome, overlooking the Purbeck Hills on the edge of Wareham. This impressive old building was a grain house in a previous life, owned by the Oakley Brothers. It was later converted into a Grade II listed building in 1952 and was a tea rooms run by a Miss Sydenham and a Miss Carter, before being turned into a pub and restaurant in more recent years (though both ladies are still honoured with their own rooms in the modern-day restaurant).
Given a complete new lease of life by owners, Hall & Woodhouse, the contemporary glass doors let in natural light, and the homely ambience created by the wood burners and exposed beams makes the Old Granary a lovely space to spend some time relaxing and enjoying excellent hospitality. There are spectacular panoramic views which are not to be missed, on the open roof terrace that offers al fresco dining in pleasant weather. The riverside location is lovely for children to feed the ducks and swans.
The Old Granary is proud to be part of the Hall & Woodhouse family. For more information on Hall & Woodhouse and to find other Hall & Woodhouse houses click here.
