Description: The Grosvenor Arms is newly refurbished, it is traditional yet stylish, relaxed yet ‘buzzy’, and open all day. You are always welcome, for a drink in the bar, a cup of coffee in the conservatory, or a pizza from the wood oven. The restaurant is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and the paved courtyard is always available for an alfresco lunch or drink. The bar, deli and courtyard are open all day for food, 7.30am -10pm, and the restaurant from 12- 3.00pm and 6.00 – 10pm. Drop in at any time to eat at our bar, enjoy brunch, or for tea and cake in the conservatory. We serve great coffee and specialist loose leaf teas. Our relaxed restaurant serves the finest ingredients, simply, but whenever possible, seasonal, local, wild and organic. Our wood oven produces the best thin crust pizzas, and the most delicious slow cooked shoulder of pork...

This smart hotel has a lovely dining room all set up for Covid. Friendly front of house and waiting team. I did feel the £12 for a small bowl of moule (a starter), was a high price. I expected more, knowing the cost of this seafood. I had a side order of chips and a white wine spritz. £25!

We loved our 3 night (dinner B&B) stay recently. The hotel is right in the middle of Shaftesbury, at the start of the High Street which has great indie shops, and also a few yards from the famous Gold Hill, of the Hovis TV fame! The standard double room was very comfortable, the staff were universally efficient and friendly, and the food was excellent. The Covid-19 precautions in place at the hotel seemed to be good too, but without being too draconian! Would recommend this hotel for a short break without hesitation. Set in the midst of glorious Dorset countryside, and only an hour drive from the coast.

This hotel is central to the town of Shaftesbury and very picturesque. We had a lovely spacious room and the beetroot lasagne was by far the best vegetarian dish I have eaten. Our room looked out into the courtyard pictured and all very quiet. The restaurant had a nice ambience and all very much Covid compliant. It felt safe and a really pleasant stay.
