Award Winning Tipples

Pour a lightly chilled glass of white with a June barbecue, or a smooth red with a hot winter soup. We have carefully chosen a range of wines, available at the General Stores, and they can also be ordered in advance. Just give us a ring and we can help you select something.

We also stock local ales and ciders, so you can shoot the breeze at the end of the day with a bottle or two of Dorset’s finest. Watching the sun go down with a cold beer or sipping a glass of wine by the wood burner, it’s all about relaxation – Loose Reins style.

Refreshing wines, ciders and ales
