Having established their reputation at the acclaimed Blue Vinny in Puddletown for great food, served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, Alex and Nicky Ford have now taken over the Poet Laureate in Poundbury – creating exciting menus and providing a warm pub welcome.

The food is home-cooked and, where possible, the ingredients are sourced locally from the family farm, friends or trusted specialist suppliers. The wines have been chosen to complement the menu, and there is always a range of excellent guest ales on tap.

Since they returned to their home county of Dorset six years ago, Alex and Nicky have become even more passionate about producing the very best food at accessible prices, as well as extending a friendly welcome in a homely environment to locals and visitors alike.
