Standing proud in the heart of Poundbury, the Duchess of Cornwall Inn occupies a grand and impressive building that’s just as magnifi cent on the inside. Stepping in through the unique entrance porch made from a giant copper tun, we took in the fantastically high ceilings and enormous windows that make the space feel light and airy. Striking features blend with comfy chairs and country house-style decor to create a relaxed, amiable feel.

We climbed the vast wooden staircase to the top floor and found ourselves in the most spectacular dining room, boasting vast windows with far-reaching views and a wonderful art collection. The menu offers a tantalising selection of dishes to suit all tastes, but the baked flat mushrooms with lentils and citrus, caper and sunblushed tomato dressing was too good to pass up and proved to be every bit as tasty as I’d hoped. My partner’s whitebait with tartare sauce was just as satisfying, providing an excellent opening to the meal. I followed with sumptuous confit duck leg in Blandford Fly ale gravy, while my partner’s succulent West Country sirloin steak diffused an incredible aroma that set our senses alight. To round off what was a delectable meal, we enjoyed refreshing Dorset honey frozen yoghurt and a mouthwatering raspberry and frangipane tart – a delectable dessert that just so happened to be vegan.
