Fodor's Review

Oak-beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls, and inglenook fireplaces add to the charm of this restaurant in 300-year-old cottage. It specializes in superior Modern French cooking using locally sourced produce, with dishes like seared Lyme Bay scallops, pork tenderloin in a sauce of local Blue Vinny cheese, and pan-fried Dorset Coast sea bass. A fixed-price dinner menu with two (£32) or three (£37.50) courses gives good value. Eight comfortable bedrooms are available in an extension overlooking gardens or fields. Lower Bockhampton is signposted off the A35, 1½ miles east of Dorchester.
