We have signed up as champions to the Dorset Sustainable Palm Oil Community. Sustainable palm oil should be the norm, and by signing up, we are telling our suppliers that the food we buy and consume should not contribute to deforestation and biodiversity loss. 
Our action to join the Dorset Sustainable Palm Oil Community can make a difference, saving wildlife, and protecting the planet.  Sign up today and join the other Dorset businesses and organisations who are saying Yes to sustainable palm oil.  #actforwildlife #grosvenorarmsshaftesbury #saynotopalmoil

It's been a tough year and our super staff have been amazing. We think that they deserve some well-earned time off with family and friends. So, for the first time ever, we will be closing for a few days. All our pubs and hotels will be closed for three days from Tuesday 4th January 2022. They will all reopen and be back with a bang on Friday 7th January 2022.
