Seeking help from locals spread across Dorset, we have been putting together our guides to some great places to eat in Dorset and they have been really well received.
Whether you are looking for high end restaurants or places to grab a quick coffee or picnic, there are so many delicious places to enjoy across the county. Some are right on the coast or in a town centre, but many are off the beaten track or in a suburb or village.
Many of those listed hand make their food from scratch and many source hyper local ingredients. We’ve tried to test them all and to find some of the hidden gems so that you can have fun exploring this great county and tasting the best it has to offer.
We have divided up the lists into areas so it’s easier to search and we also have our main Directory which has over 600 Dorset based food and drink businesses listed. Our Directory is searchable and map based and you can find local bakeries, butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers, farm shops etc. It is the perfect way to make sure you can source your ingredients as locally as possible.
