For a fun vintage experience, visit ReLoved, a family-run tearoom, ice cream parlour and cocktail bar in Dorchester. Head upstairs to the pretty tearooms for wholesome, homemade food that’s lovingly produced in the tiny kitchen, including delicious breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and amazing cakes, as well as freshly prepared roasts on Sundays. The cream teas are superb, and there’s a great selection of gluten-free and vegan dishes, including their famous vegan chocolate cake.
ReLoved’s ice cream parlour serves traditional sundaes piled high with homemade sauces and treats, and of course, a cherry on top. As ReLoved is licensed, you can enjoy Prosecco with your tea party, a pint of Peroni with your roast, a Conker gin and tonic with your quiche, or a White Lady cocktail with your lemon meringue sundae.
Spend the evening in the atmospheric Basement Bar where you might sample a Hemingway Daiquiri, one of the wonderful authentic cocktails on offer at the well-stocked bar, alongside local draught beer and a special selection of whiskey and gin. Check out their Facebook page or website for details of events such as the Wednesday open mic night, where you’re free to join in the showcase of vibrant talent ranging from comedians and poets to singers and accordionists. Every Thursday evening you can dance the night away at the Vinyl Disco. It’s a complete vintage experience all under one roof.
