A 'QUINTESSENTIAL' Dorset pub, which has been used as the set location for two films, is on the market - and it could be yours for £775,000.

The Brace of Pheasants pub and inn, in Plush, near Dorchester, is a privately owned and operated business which was established by the current owners in 2006.

The 0.67-acre plot boasts a pub and dining area which can hold up to 94 customers, eight en-suite bed and breakfast rooms, a beer garden and a customer car park.

The property, a detached mid-18th century two storey Grade-II listed building, has numerous features typical of a country inn, including low-beamed ceilings, traditional fireplaces and a prominent bar.

The ground floor customer areas are arranged into three distinct sections: the main bar, seating 44 people without social distancing, the dining area, seating 40, and the private dining room, seating 14.

The ancillary areas include a trade kitchen and preparation area, customer toilets, a laundry room and a ground floor thermostatically controlled beer cellar.

The beer garden can seat more than 72 people and can accommodate a function marquee for private events and weddings.

The plot also includes planning permission for a four bedroom thatched cottage which can be built adjacent to the car park.

Ashley Rawlings of Savills Wimborne said: "The Brace of Pheasants is a quintessential Dorset pub in the sought-after Piddle Valley which offers a fantastic lifestyle opportunity for an incoming buyer, with a well-established business and a building plot in the grounds with planning permission in place for a four bedroom thatched home.

"The mid-18th century country inn if incredibly popular and has won numerous awards in recent years, including featuring in The Good Food Guide's Top Ten Country Pubs 2021."

Other awards the pub has won include the Dorset Dining Pub of the Year 2017 and 2011 and the Country Pub of the Year 2018. The pub was also named as one of the three best luxury country pub restaurants by the Sunday Times Magazine in 2016, and it has been the set location for two German television movies, including Inspector Jury: The Dead Man in the Pub.
