The FleetProtected by the Fleet and Swannery Trust a popular attraction on Dorset's Jurassic coast, the Fleet is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest and a nature reserve. It’s waters support 150 species of seaweed, 25 species of fish and 60 species of molluscs.  Up to 5,000 Brent geese winter here and it is a haven for wading birds including oyster catchers, terns and redshanks.  The village is therefore hugely popular with birdwatchers as well as walkers as it connects to the South West Coast Path on the Jurassic Coast which is a World Heritage Site.

The Elm Tree is used by many walkers hikers and bird watchers as a starting point for a coastal walk. Ramblers are welcome to park in the paddock to the side of the car park if they are returning to use the pub later.

The Elm Tree is a traditional country pub with a welcome for everyone.  Children are welcome and high chairs are provided. There is a playhouse in the garden with toys and colouring books.  We also welcome dogs and even groups of horse riders who can tie up under the trees in the paddock.

We had a really good family lunch in this inn last Tuesday. Nine of us, including three small children, had a wide range of dishes. The fish meals were simply excellent - fresh and tasty - and so was the Aberdeen Angus steak. All meals were freshly prepared and were served in a very pleasant, obliging and timely fashion by the staff. Langton Herring is a delightful quiet backwater - so if you want a really good meal in pleasant surroundings The Elm Tree is certainly well worth a visit!
