The historic market town of Dorchester is home to Cow & Apple, a fantastic bar and restaurant that specialises in mouth-watering burgers and local cider. Inside, the place has a vibrant feel complete with industrial-style decor – think exposed brickwork, reclaimed wood and corrugated iron features. Expect an enthusiastic welcome from staff and a casual, convivial atmosphere in which to imbibe.
Cow & Apple is open all day, so you can pop in any time from morning to evening. Kick-start your day with a hearty farmhouse breakfast or bowl of granola with fruit compote. For a deliciously satisfying meal, you can’t go wrong with one of the team’s exceptional burgers made from carefully sourced, premium-quality beef. You’ll find plenty of tempting flavour combinations such as the Piggy Back with bacon, Brie and caramelised onion, and The Combine, stacked with Cheddar, bacon, onion rings, barbecue sauce and salad. Vegetarians can enjoy tasty options such as the smoked mushroom burger made with Portobello mushrooms, smoked cheese, sundried tomatoes and rocket, and there are plenty of vegan and gluten-free choices. If you’re not in the mood for a burger, you can sample some of their amazing tacos or loaded hot dogs, and wash it all down with a refreshing cider from the extensive range. Don’t just take our word for it – Cow & Apple won a Taste of the West Gold award in 2017 for their top-notch offering. They’ve got a restaurant in Yeovil too, so if you’re ever in the area, be sure to stop by.
