Having just arrived in Dorchester this looked the perfect place for a drink and cake. We weren’t wrong and lemon drizzle cake was delicious. Make sure you read the background story of the bluebell wood !

Walking past an interesting menu attracted me into the 'supper club' one day a week when they open for a light early dinner. A very limited menu but the food was absolutely superb and very friendly service. Excellent atmosphere and really good value highly reccommended
