Enjoy a freshly cooked breakfast,
lunch or afternoon tea

The restaurant at the Craft Centre has been serving home produced foods for over 30 years. Totally refurbished in 2018, our restaurant and conservatory offer an attractive and comfortable setting, with free wi-fi throughout.

All of our meals are home-cooked from scratch, using only the best fresh local produce.

Our hearty breakfast menu is available from 10:00am (9:30am on weekends and during the summer holidays), with freshly cooked dishes such as eggs benedict, traditional breakfast or porridge.

Our lunch menu offers diners a wide variety of choice and caters to all appetites – whether you’re in the mood for something light, or something more substantial. Our daily Specials Board also showcases some of the best seasonal options. We have a great children’s menu too, and offer gluten-free options too.

Fine coffees and Dorset teas are served throughout the day alongside an excellent selection of cakes, with Dorset Cream Tea a speciality. For a real treat, indulge yourself with a scrumptious high tea, available between 2.30pm – 4.30pm (24hr notice required).
