A freehouse pub in rural Dorset with five acres of gardens, skittle alley, crazy golf, pygmy goats, camping, shepherd huts and campervans! Family owned and run, the Gaggle is a perfect destination for families, walkers and those looking for somewhere special.
The pub, campsite & shepherd huts are currently closed due to being in tier 3. We are offering takeaways (collection or local delivery) Friday evenings & Sundays. Menus below. You can also pop along to our Saturday morning bakery from 11am. Key dates for 2021 are in our Events section. Latest news on our Facebook page
Our food is made in-house by our Chef Team. Using locally sourced produce, our menu focuses on pub classics. Sensibly priced so you can eat with us regularly or treat yourself from our Specials Board. Dine alfresco from our BBQ Shack or wood-fired pizza oven.
With approx 5 acres of gardens, we have set aside a field for wild flowers and camping. We offer a couple of Shepherd Huts and space for those with tents or camper-vans. A beautiful, peaceful location; contact us if you would like to stay.
We also have a couple of campervans available for you to hire. Stay at the Gaggle or set off on a grand adventure!
During lockdown, takeaways now available Friday evenings and Sundays.
Kids menus, lunchtime sandwiches and Daily Specials also available when the pub is fully open. Example menu below.
We aim for our pub to be welcoming to everyone. Our Play Bus, crazy golf, friendly pygmy goats and free activity packs will keep the kids happy whilst you enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.
A perfect location to celebrate your special occasion. From anniversaries to weddings, birthdays to kids parties; the Gaggle can offer versatile space inside and out.
