Few things are as quintessentially English as the country pub, and True Lovers Knot in the picturesque Dorset village of Tarrant Keyneston confirms this. The delightful brick-and-flint architecture of the building immediately suggests a homely and welcoming ambience, reinforced on stepping inside, and the stunning countryside surrounding the village is some of the South West's finest.

With ample seating space inside and a large garden, True Lovers Knot is well-equipped for delightful wedding celebrations. Enjoy unmatchable views of the Tarrant Valley here - a quite magical setting for your big day. The pub was refurbished in 2006 and now presents four luxury ensuite rooms, plus camping and caravanning facilities, perfect for your wedding night or an extended stay!


A pub or inn has apparently existed on the site for centuries; it was first established to serve and refresh travellers stopping at the neighbouring toll-gate. 'True Lovers Knot' has evolved from these earlier facilities, and now operates as a well-established venue, perfect for your wedding reception. The pub has a complex and romantic history, making it the ideal setting for such celebrations.


The Pub

True Lovers Knot can host medium-sized wedding receptions where guests can enjoy its charming interior and classic pub décor.

Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 70 Guests
Evening Reception Capacity - 130 Guests


The proprietors of True Lovers Knot have access to various marquees, making larger receptions at the pub a distinct possibility.

As well as the pretty garden and the immediate grounds, there is a connecting 10-acre field adjacent to the pub. This can readily be used as extra marquee space as well as an al fresco dining area in fine weather, or as a convenient area for guests camping.

Wedding Breakfast Capacity - 150 Guests
Evening Reception Capacity - 250 Guests


A delicious wedding breakfast is a guarantee at True Lovers Knot. Known for their mouthwatering cuisine, the dedicated, talented team of chefs will work with you to produce whatever type of dish and style of presentation you and your guests require, whether it be a barbecue, hog-roast, three-course wedding breakfast or a buffet. Whatever takes your fancy, the possibilities are endless!

Get in touch with the friendly chef team for further information and to decide on the right dining option for your wedding reception.


True Lovers Knot features four double bedrooms with ensuite facilities. Each has been furnished to a high standard and provides all the necessary features for a luxurious night's stay. The romantic four-poster 'Amour' room is an ideal honeymoon suite for the newlywed bride and groom, and can be kitted out with beautiful flowers, plus champagne and chocolate for an extra celebration!

For guests wishing to spend a little time in the gorgeous Dorset countryside, there is a camping and caravan site in the grounds. It features eight pitches, electric hook-up, toilets and showers, and is a perfect base for a longer stay in the quaint Dorset village!

    We had our wedding at the True Lovers Knot 3 weeks ago. It was the most wonderful day and I cannot thank the team, Chloe and Chris enough. The day ran smoothly, with Chris adding in all our little personal touches and being on hand through out the day. The food was brilliant! We had so much fun, and it was really relaxed thanks to the team and Chris. Thank you!
