Situated in a beautiful location just off Shaftesbury High Street in lovely Dorset the cafe serves delicious world and home vegetarian cuisine, freshly squeezed juices, smoothies & shakes, organic coffee & tea, homemade gluten free cakes, fine wines and cocktails. We bake our own spelt wheat bread, cakes, brownies and flapjacks. The menu offers food for vegan, gluten and dairy free diets and also caters for children. The walls of the old stable premises are adorned with rare & vintage vinyl which is also for sale. We have recently turned our function room into a fully stocked bar - onThursday, Friday and Saturday evenings we are open serving cocktails & carefully selected wines & beers, & we host regular live music nights as well as themed food evenings. Enjoy sitting by the bespoke log fire on a chilly night, or when it's sunny you can soak up the rays in our courtyard. At Beggars' Banquet it is our intention to serve delicious wholesome food in a relaxed atmosphere, where people can meet and greet, find out what's happening locally or just chill out and spend valuable solo time.
