The current Hall consists of a large room (seating approximately 100), a smaller room, (seating 20) and a kitchen with a large range style cooker. In 2011 the Hall was completely renovated to a high standard and is now fully insulated and double glazed, with oil fired central heating. There is disabled access into the Hall and a disabled access toilet. The Cerne Abbas doctors hold a surgery in the Hall twice a week for their patients.

The large room and the small room are both available for hire, either separately or together by clubs or individuals. There is sound proofing between the rooms so that 2 separate groups can be accommodated, although the kitchen facilities may have to be shared. The use of trestle tables, chairs and electricity costs are all included in the rent. Heating is on a meter, taking £1 and 20p coins, paid for by the hirer. There is a PA sound system that can be used.
A number of wooden trestle tables and chairs are available to hire.
Many groups already use the Hall but more users are always welcome. If you wish to form a new club or society, meeting on a regular basis, the Village Hall Committee will assist in helping your venture get started.
Individuals can book the Hall for meetings, fund raising events and parties etc, subject to the terms and conditions of the Hall Hiring agreement. If a pay bar is required the hirer must obtain their own licence.
The Village Hall committee uses the Hall for its own events, including musical evenings, quizzes and children’s entertainments.
The Village Hall Committee meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 7.30pm and would welcome new committee members.
