Lovely Lunches

This is the place for lunch !!!   Menus change seasonally throughout the year, produce is fresh and menus delightful.  In summer a range of gorgeous salads, with locally cooked ham, lovely goats cheese, smoked mackerel etc etc and in the winter months choices of haddock, sausages and lots lots more.

Our Sunday Lunches are a feast to behold….  Roast beef, Yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and seven perfectly cooked seasonal vegetables, you really are in for a treat, all topped with delicious homemade gravy!  And, if the beef isn’t to your taste we have lighter options with fish, or fabulous vegetarian options too !

More than just tea served throughout the rest of the day…. you will find salmon and cream cheese muffins, lovely pasties and other lovelies served before 12 pm and after lunch, from 2.30 pm.

Vintage Afternoon Teas

With Savoury Teas served along side Glorious Afternoon teas, Traditional Dorset Cream Teas and the less conventional Prohibition Tea with gin & tonic served in a teapot !!!  There is certainly something for everyone.  During the school holidays there is even a fabulous Chocolate Cream Tea with chocolate scones !

Our scones are baked by Karla on the premises using locally stone ground organic flour.

We also have a range of locally made cakes available to choose from, including gluten free choices.


“Lovely little tea room”     

“At the end of a 7.5 mile round walk this little gem of a tea room / restaurant is a welcome surprise. On a beautiful sunny October day we sat in the rear secluded garden and had the best Dorset cream tea we’ve had this holiday. Service was friendly and we were warned of a delay in the scones – to be rewarded by beautiful short pastries straight out of the oven! Free tea top ups were welcomed”.

“Quirky restaurant with very tasty food”
This small quirky restaurant in the out-of-the-way village of Worth Matravers in Purbeck is well worth a visit. We had venison with cranberries, mash and runner beans and lamb koftas with cracked wheat and a mint and yoghurt sauce.The most striking thing about these dishes was how very tasty they were – really excellent.   TripAdvisor: 5 of 5 stars
