Head to The Baker Arms in Child Okeford for some refreshments on your ride. It's a quintessential Dorset pub located right in the village. The pub dates back to circa 1770 and is perfectly situated at the foot of Hambledon hill. There's a cosy log burner indoors for the winter and a nice beer garden for warm summer days. There's a very good menu and an associated cottage if you need overnight accommodation. You can find the pub at The Cross with a postcode of DT118ED for your sat navs.
