Enjoy a right royal feast in Dorset's fine restaurants

With more than half of its countryside designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Dorset is a county that is renowned for its breathtaking landscapes. It's also famous for its Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site of coves, beaches and cliffs that attracts fossil hunters from all over the world. Another thing that attracts visitors to the county is the food. Dorset's restaurants benefit from some fine local produce that has delighted visitors for centuries and even received royal approval when King George III renamed a local pudding 'Royal Pudding' in 1838. Check out our selection of the best restaurants in Dorset and you could soon be enjoying a meal fit for a king.

    Sample tasty traditional dishes in the British restaurants of Dorset

    A visit to one of the excellent regional Dorset restaurants will soon reveal why the county attracts such celebrated visitors. Look out for jugged steak, for example, a slow-cooked dish that simply melts in your mouth. Portland lamb is another local speciality and is famed for its tender, lean meat. The coastline, meanwhile, provides more than just fossils and the local crab is a highlight of seafood restaurants in Dorset. To finish off a fine meal, why not try the famous apple cake or blue vinney cheese?

    You must try the excellent seafood restaurants of Dorset

    All along the magnificent coast of Dorset, restaurants are busy turning out some wonderful seafood dishes. A dish of oysters served with just a little lemon juice and perhaps a dash of Tabasco is a simple but luxurious treat, while hot smoked mackerel from Chesil makes the most of this tasty fish. Look out also for some excellent Lyme Bay scallops and stunning lobster from Lymington. Crab linguini and mussels in white wine are other local favourites.
