    Great ambience and service. Had some problems with the beer though. Two of us had beer that didn’t taste quite right. I think it was under- carbonated. I had a London Pride that seemed flat and then a Grasshopper that also tasted flat.

    We both had bangers and mash. Food was good but would have liked it a bit hotter. Finished with Black Forest Cake and Sticky Toffee Pudding. Both very good and large portions.

    Loved the atmosphere it is unique. Not sure if our server was new but we didn’t see her often, for more drinks, or water. Fish and Chips, burger and banger and mash was really good. The smoked Caesar was cool. Our friend ordered a clubhouse with no mayo and no tomatoes, and it came with both. We waited almost 15 mins and had to ask another server to grab ours to send back to kitchen. 30 mins later she still did not have her sandwich. She finally just cancelled her order and we went somewhere else for her to eat. The manager did come over and apologize and took care of a few drinks. Mistakes happen and we would go back again.

    The Dorset Pub & EateryResponded 5 days agoHello Cooky267, We appreciate you taking the time to leave us a very detailed review and we will take all of your feedback to review how we can improve our service. We hope to see you come back soon. Have a wonderful week.

    Plates too small, even though not large amount of food. Small piece of fish & chips $21.00 not worth the price. Chicken burger and with British type chips ( chips not very good) clubhouse sandwich bacon needed to be cooked longer.

    The Dorset Pub & EateryResponded on 15 September 2022Hello TeddyB, We apologize your experience was not what you had hoped for. Your review will be shared with our Management team as we always ensure we are taking any guest feedback and making the necessary changes. We do hope you will come back for a second visit and feel free to ask for our General Manager Adam if you have any further questions or concerns.

    Outstanding service and excellent food! The Steak and Ale pie was amazing and highly recommended. The vegetables that came with it were cooked to perfection. The apple pie was delicious - made in house with fresh apples, not canned filling, and the crust was light and flakey. Great atmosphere and decor, though the acoustics lend to a noisy venue when it gets busy. Our server, Judith, was so nice!

    Food was mediocre. Waldorf salad and Yorkshire pudding was ordered. We did receive shared portions on two plates. Tea requires boiling water, not tepid water. Dessert was served with a soup spoon. Sat on the patio and street noise, at times, unbearable. Inside of restaurant looked like a nice atmosphere.

    We went opening night so service was understandably a bit slow. Our server was very friendly, though. The location looks great. The drinks were cool. One of our companions said the fish and chips was excellent, but another said their burger was over cooked. We had the vegan burger which was nicely seasoned but dry, as pretty much all bean-based burgers tend to be. The beer battered mushrooms and cauliflower were both nicely done. The table preferred the wedge fries to the regular fries. I’d love to see some more vegan options (like a curry, or hummus, which isn’t British but is always a nice pub option, or even pork-free beans on toast)—it gets a bit boring when every bar only has deep fried food, a veggie burger, and salad (would love the option to turn a salad into a salad wrap). But I do appreciate there were at least options there.

    The Dorset Pub & EateryResponded on 6 September 2022Thank you so much for taking the time to review The Dorset! We will also take in account some additional vegan options for our menu:) Looking forward to hosting you again soon!
