We are now closed. 


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.

Sit in front of our log burner in the winter, or enjoy our Beer Garden in the summer. We serve hand pulled local ales, wines & continental lagers.

We serve a freshly prepared, regularly changing menu with an emphasis on comfort food. All our food is cooked to order from our small kitchen (with only 1 chef). We have a small capacity in our bar, so highly recommend booking a table.


We can also cater for small Lunch or Dinner gatherings of up to 15 people (pre-orders required).

If you need a buffet for a larger event - Birthday, Christening or wake, we can cater. We also offer outside catering. Contact us to discuss your requirements.

A few steps from the pub is Daisy Cottage. Our Self catering cottage is your 'Home away from Home' and is perfect for a business stay over, weekend break, for couples or families. We are dog friendly throughout the Pub & Cottage.
