Our Story

The Hardys Experience

Hardy's Pub is situated in the county town of Dorchester in Dorset.

Under new management since November 2019, until lockdown was building up a great reputation for the place to go for a quick pint or an evening's entertainment.  Hardy's friendly team are welcoming and provide some of Dorset's best live entertainment over the whole weekend.

As the lockdown restrictions are lifted, the team have worked hard to improve the overall look inside and out and maintain the Covid-19 guidelines and move with these as they change.  They are one of the pubs in Dorchester, who will take your temperature on arrival and their beer garden has seen a makeover, which makes it a very pleasant spot of a lovely summer's evening.

Their jukebox has a wide mix of music across the decades, often moving from rap to rock, 60s to 80s, etc.  The live music (although on hold inside at present due to Covid-19) is the place to go in Dorset.

Forget the old stories of Hardy's of the past, and come make make new fabulous memories with Glenn, Sarah and team.
