Friendly and welcoming staff. Lunches and sandwiches are from about £3.50 to £6.95 for a cheese tart and wedges. Good size portions and better than average but not quite into a 4 star rating. The restaurant is bright inside unlike some of the other offers

The Walnut Grove is a regular haunt of ours, especially when we have been in town for a good shop. The menu is varied - ranging from a simple sandwich up to a full meal. The prices are not the cheapest; a gourmet sandwich will set you back about £6, but it is a very good sandwich, trust me. The staff are attentive and friendly, and the general atmosphere is comfortable.
The restaurant also opens for special evenings, and they are popular and well-attended.
All-in-all I can recommend The Walnut Grove. Highly!

It is hard to find a good, independent coffee shop in Dorchester so the Walnut Grove was a wonderful find for my family and I. We had a very friendly welcome and the young waitresses were delightful. We had a simple yet delicious lunch.

This is a really sweet coffee shop/tea room in the heart of Dorchester and I would recommend getting away from the chain coffee shops and visiting this little gem.

What a little gem in the heart of Dorchester, a beautiful setting in the middle of a busy hustling town. sit relax and enjoy fresh coffee with family friends or work-buddies
