Beer Hackett is a small village and civil parish in west Dorset, England, situated 3 miles (4.8 km) southwest of Sherborne and 5 miles (8.0 km) southeast of Yeovil. The civil parish includes the small settlement of Knighton to the east. Dorset County Council's 2013 mid-year estimate of the population of the civil parish is 100.[1]

Beer Hackett was not recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086.[2] The nave and west tower of the parish church were originally built in the early 15th century, though the whole building was radically restored in the 19th century.[3]
