“Fabulous local produced food”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Whilst trying to find somehwere to eat we asked a lady in another cafe if she could recommend a cafe for us . She told us to try here . Delighted that she did .
The cafe is housed in a historic almhouse. As made form local stone on a very hot day , which it was when we visited , it was lovely and cool inside.
My wife , son and I had standard simple English food ( fish and chips, salad, ham egg and chips ).
Best ham and chips we have ever tasted anywhere. So good that for the rest of the holiday everyother restaurant we ate at we compared to this one and they were not as good.
Very reasonanly priced.
I will not eat anywhere else in Dorchester.

“Historic almshouse”
Reviewed 6 August 2014

It was a perfect place to stop for lunch. The food was fine, nothing special, but the atmosphere was pleasant.

“A pleasant surprise.”
Reviewed 9 July 2014 via mobile

When we first sat down in the modest courtyard we were concerned at what seemed an expensive menu. We were later to discover the prices were in proportion to the size of meal you got. I had a jacket potato with salad and coleslaw the boss had a bacon and brie panini. Both were filling and pleasantly satisfying. While the cover for the courtyard is a somewhat drab bit of grey material strung across scaffolding poles the bar area and other eating area are pleasant affairs. A nice find.

“Good value”
Reviewed 27 June 2014

Happy waitress and staff ,good value meals ,the courtyard is lovely and covered with the a tent . It was too cold to sit out for us , but would be lovely on a warm day . My only reservation was the pint of bitter was a half inch short . Being a Southerner I prefer beer to Head of froth !! Not really a problem as I was driving anyway !.

“Don't bother”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

If you feel hungry and want to spend fifteen minutes sitting at a table being totally ignored, then this is the place for you. We sat here for fifteen minutes as at least three staff walked past (one young chap three times) not one offered us a menu. We had to ask another table if we could look at theirs.After reaching our decision on what to eat, we waited and waited and waited still being ignored. So obviously this establishment don't need custom and can pick and chose who and when they serve. We gave up went elsewhere and thoroughly enjoyed our experience, realising we were not invisible after all!!
