Why not take a break from your shopping with a visit to The Dorset Kitchen, located on the ground floor of the Goulds Household Department Store? This spacious and welcoming eatery boasts a relaxed ambience that’s ideal for anything from a quick morning coffee to a tasty lunchtime snack. Its position at the heart of one of Dorchester’s most beloved department stores means you never even have to leave the shops. Throughout the week, visitors will find an enticing array of homemade or locally sourced sweet treats on offer. Share a pot of tea and try a rich chocolate brownie, or perhaps you’ll opt for a slice of classic lemon drizzle cake. Lunchtime meals include fresh sandwiches and jacket potatoes, and the delicate afternoon teas are beautifully presented. The Dorset Kitchen aims to accommodate as many diets as possible and, as such, there’s a selection of gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan options available.
