Home > Local Food And Drink
West Dorset has an excellent reputation for its fantastic food and drink. From the traditional Dorset Cream Tea to fresh seafood, our local cuisine is loved by those who live here and those who keep returning!
There is an abundance of eateries to choose from in West Dorset, including some renowned and award winning restaurants offering the highest quality, locally sourced food in spectacular surroundings. Tradional tea rooms are also popular in the area, where you can feast on some tantalising Dorset Apple Cake.
Or head to one of our restaurants or traditional public houses for a meal and sit outside under the summer sun with a pint of Dorset ale. Have a fish and chip supper by the seaside or why not take the family out on a picnic!
