With the amazing local produce available on our doorstep, our Executive Chef Steven Titman and his brigade of exceptional chefs create wonderful menus that carefully reflect our philosophy of “farm to fork”. We use only the best and most seasonal produce to showcase the finest that Dorset has to offer, with a light and delicate touch that allows the ingredients to speak for themselves.
We are all so proud of our region and our incredible suppliers. From wonderful local cheeses to Dorset truffles and everything in between, we are never short of delicious produce, enhanced by the freshest ingredients grown in our own kitchen gardens and polytunnels.
With one of the world’s finest sommeliers, Eric Zwiebel, on hand, the dining experience is made even more extraordinary. His incredible knowledge and his ability to perfectly match Steven’s food with the finest wines in his carefully curated cellar is truly a thing of beauty. The Restaurant is proud to hold three AA Rosettes.
