Saturday late lunchtime needing a light-bite for me and my wife. My wife has a very restricted diet (GF, LF, etc. and 'Fodmap') so eating out is always a challenge. Menu's brought and order-taken quickly but calmly. 'Taste' has a great range of GF options...and the helpful server checked-out one ingredient with the kitchen. Helpful, clear advice came back and the food was soon with us. A Club Sandwich was as advertised (minus the 'beetroot jam' which contained onion - a no go for my wife) and was delicious. My bruschetta was equally delicious and I rounded the meal off with an Americano. This was up there with the very best coffee, much better than the coffee-house chains, a generous size cup, hot, and plenty of cold milk in a separate container. Perfect. My wife had a GF brownie to take away and said it was very good. We were asked a couple of times by our server and his colleagues if everything was OK... just right, not intrusive. The toilets were modern, well-stocked and spotless. My last visit was well-before lockdown and Taste was at least as good as I remembered... possibly better. Will go back again whenever I am in Dorchester.More

Staff were extremely welcoming, friendly, polite, helpful and caring. Made you feel that they had time for you and you didn’t need to rush. Very relaxing. Iced coffee was creamy (not watery) best in the county. Earl Grey tea was excellent quality, served in a...teapot that kept it warm and poured well. A splendid achievement! Toastie was excellent, had a unique filling, not ‘run of the mill’ and was tastefully presented. Coffee cake was beautiful, as well as delicious and not mass produced. Certainly money we’ll spent. We sat outside in the sunshine, but obviously that can’t be guaranteed!More

We were looking for somewhere for lunch with our 10 month old little girl as we were passing through the area and we asked a passer by, who recommended here. We were greeted with a lovely welcome from all staff, there were no problem accommodating...us and the pram. A high chair was bough out for us. The food was amazing. We had a club sandwich and a fish sandwich with a huge side of fries. Our little girl accidentally knocked over a drink and a new one was made for us without having to ask. Such attentive staff. Was so glad to have stumbled upon this. Thank you everyone for making the start of our holiday so tasty and smiley!More

Good standard of food and the gluten free service is excellent. In addition the staff are all top class and always welcoming understanding my wife's celiac requirements and catering for her each time we visit.

I love eating at Taste so chose to meet a friend here, plenty of seating free, service maybe a little slow but it was peak lunchtime. We both ordered chicken supreme expecting sauce and rice as you do, but it was a flat bit of...chicken with a small leaf salad. Flavours are always great here, today was no exception, just wasn't quite what we expected. We did have carrot cake and brownie afterwards which was lovely.More

Dear Beviang, Thank you for your question, we only allow assistance dogs in the brasserie itself, but we do have some outside seating where we can serve you if you have a dog with you. Kind regards Rebekah, Manager.
