Nestled within the picturesque village of Chickerell, just three miles west of Weymouth, The Lugger Inn is a lovely traditional English pub and restaurant.
Just minutes from the stunning Jurassic coastline of Dorset, Chickerell sits on a coastal road between the popular Dorset seaside towns of Weymouth and Bridport and is the perfect location for a bite to eat. Dating back over 200 years, The Lugger Inn has plenty to offer guests including a brilliant bar, restaurant, beer garden and skittle alley and is the real hub of village life.
Aside from the restaurant, dining is also enjoyed in the bar at The Lugger Inn with a light snack menu on offer to replace the restaurant’s heartier dishes. The range of sandwiches and baguettes is excellent with fillings such as bacon, brie and cranberry or black pudding, bacon and tomato.
Other options include jacket potatoes with fillings of butter, cheese, cheese and pickle, prawn mayonnaise, tuna mayonnaise and cheese and beans to choose from. The bar has a great wine list with many wines available by the glass and bottle as well as a wide range of beers and ales, many from the local area.
Originally a fishing village, Chickerell has connections with Fleet and Moonfleet, famous for the church where Blackbeard the Pirate allegedly buried his treasure. Boasting a strong village community, The Lugger Inn is at the heart of it, with its walls adorned with local fishing artefacts and imagery. Weymouth Golf Club is just down the road too, making it a great option for lunch or dinner after a tee off.
