Welcome to The Canford

The Canford is a beautiful coastal pub with 11 rooms nestled in the heart of Canford Cliffs, on the Dorset Coast. Our 11 quirky coastal bedrooms within our pub, make the perfect base for your next leisurely getaway or business trip to the south coast. We are positioned just a short stroll from the stunning award-winning Blue Flag Sandbanks beaches and public transport links into both Bournemouth and Poole, our rooms above the pub offer ensuite boutique bedrooms, each with its own individual coastal style. 

Our Head Chef Sam and her talented kitchen brigade has curated delicious dishes, using only the best of British seasonal ingredients, that can be enjoyed throughout the pub, garden and private huts, alongside our extensive wine list (or your favourite pint from draught). A firm favourite amongst the locals for celebrations, we host everything from christenings and birthday parties to milestone anniversaries and the bonus is, your guests won’t have far to travel for a good night’s rest.

We believe your Christmas season should be one to remember, spent with your nearest-and-dearest, in a cosy corner of your favourite local. With our roaring log burner and boasting menus, your Christmas will be one to remember here at the Canford.

Terry & the team look forward to welcoming you.
