Having been in business for over 110 years, the Goulds Department Store team certainly knows a thing or two about giving customers exactly what they want; and in the case of in-store café, Dorset Kitchen, that means local food. Wherever possible, items on the menu have been sourced from within Dorset, demonstrating their support for small businesses. You’ll ﬁnd a bounty of sweet treats for a well-earned mid-morning coffee break, including homemade delights from the likes of Jessica’s Farmhouse Cakes and delicious homemade cheese scones. At lunchtime, you’ll ﬁnd panini, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and salads – featuring cheese from Coastal Cheeses, local ham and bread from the Dorset Cake Company – and soup from the Dorset Soup Company. For a real treat, indulge in the quintessential Dorset cream tea: home-baked scones, lashings of locally made strawberry jam and West Country clotted cream. Offering much more than you might expect, Dorset Kitchen begs a little exploration.
