The Gaggle

The Gaggle of Geese is a proper country pub, open fire surrounded by comfy sofas, great food (some of which is grown on the family farm), local beers and cider and a skittle alley.  The pub is surrounded by five acres of land which includes an orchard; this is home to an interesting collection of chickens that provide fresh eggs.  On the rest of land you will find sheep, goats, rabbits and of course a few geese along with a children’s climbing frame and in the summer a croquet set. 

Lounge Horses

The Hammick’s have received great acclaim over the years for their relaxed approach to running a village pub, this has seen them scoop up armfuls of awards and for their cooking to be recognised from Michelin to National Press coverage, most recently being included in the Telegraph & Famous Grouses Top 100 pubs.  So whether you want a pint and a burger in front of the fire or to eat some of the best beef available in Dorset it is a venue not to be missed.

The Gaggle of Geese is also hosts to numerous activities throughout the year from Charity Poultry Auction, Farmers Market & Car boot sale which they hold twice a year to the village fete, quiz nights or their soon to be launched wine club there is always something which to look forward to.


We strive to source all ingredients as locally and as seasonally as possible, working with local suppliers.  With these wonderful ingredients we then make everything on the menu ourselves (excluding ketchup and burger rolls!).  Where possible we are happy to adapt any dish on the menu to suit dietary requirements.
