The Baker Arms is a quintessential Dorset pub located in Child Okeford. The pub dates back to circa 1770 and is perfectly situated at the foot of Hambledon hill, an ancient hill fort in the heart of the countryside, perfect for walking & exploring.

We serve a freshly prepared, regularly changing menu with an emphasis on comfort food. Sit in front of our wood burner and enjoy a glass of wine, lager or hand pulled local ale.

We also have a beautiful Beer Garden, and host BBQ’s on Sundays during the summer months.

A few steps from the pub is Daisy Cottage, your ‘Home away from home’. The letting cottage is perfect for a business stay over, weekend break, for couples or families. Please visit our website for rates and images,

The Baker Arms & Cottage are both dog friendly.
