Dining options: After-hours, Reservations
Description: No 6 is just a stone's throw away from the town centre - come along, sit outside and sip an aperitif with some juicy, marinated olives. Order your Buckland Newton venison steak, Lyme Bay kings scallops or the freshly delivered Gurnard and indulge yourself with an exceptional dessert. Even, if you are in for a short lunch, there is plenty on the menu to get your taste buds going.

“Terrific fresh food cooked to order”
Reviewed 27 March 2014

This is a great restaurant that has a limited menu (always a good sign) of fresh food - lovely fish and special dishes of the day. We were a party of three and had mains of boeuf bourguignonne, hake with sour cream and a pasta dish (specially made without onions for my father-in-law) - they were all delicious. Our starters included the 'best ever' oysters, scallops and prawns and mackerel pate - all beautifully presented and very tasty. There was no room for puddings which all looked great, again they were all made freshly. The service was excellent and the bill, which included a bottle of wine, was very reasonable for such a great meal in lovely surroundings

“Fish Fantastic”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

My husband an I had a fantastic meal here. We both had fish and it was cooked to perfection. All the staff were very nice and nothing was too much trouble. It made our weekend away very special.

“A gem in Dorchester”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

An excellent lunch and coffee, really good food and good value. Excellent service. Found in the eating out in Dorset booklet and then on line for directions. Off the beaten track but well worth finding.

“Fish specials”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

A good choice of Fresh fish was the highlight of this small cosy restaurant. We chose the a la carte menu in view of the choice of fish offered. A cheaper option is also available with limited choices but excellent value. Will go again.
