A really nice surprise here. It's tucked out of the way an parking is a pain, but well worth the effort. the menu is varied and interesting with wide appeal. The dishes are very competently prepared and beautifully presented. Friendly and competent service and a nice relaxed atmosphere. Unfortunately the decor is a bit of a mess, with a surprising...

Tucked away off the beaten track, this restaurant is a little jewel. Very welcoming reception. We were speedily given the menus, and our chosen Pinot Grigio soon arrived. We both chose the stuffed Portobello mushrooms, and thoroughly enjoyed them. Fish seemed to be a good choice, and my partner chose Gurnard, and I chose Sea Bream. I was bought up... More

Have eaten here a few times in both a small and large group. The majority of the food has been delicious and full of flavour except for the one vegetarian dish that I had - stuffed mushrooms. They were bland and unexciting - a shame. Service has always been great.

Recommended by our B and B host we found this little restaurant off of the main High Street of Dorchester. Although we were quite late arriving we were made to feel very welcome. The waitress was lovely as was the food and atmosphere. I would highly recommend this little gem if you don't fancy Indian or Thai.

3 of us went on a Tuesday evening. Only a few tables were occupied so it was a little quiet. However the service and food were excellent. It is a little more expensive than, say, a gastropub but well worth it. The food was well-prepared and beautifully presented and there were nice touches such as a dish of olives and... More

My husband and I came here on a Thursday evening. It was very quiet and there were only 3 other people in the restaurant all night. It's the sort of place that you wouldn't stumble across though as it's down a back street. The menu was small but there were also a selection of specials on the blackboard. Service was... More

Went here midweek with a Goupon. The food was excellent. It is a bit pricey for a midweek meal but definitely worth it. We would return and be happy to pay full price.

I was so happy to see the standards of this fine restaurant still at the top of the game. They know what they are doing from décor to the most amazing food. We were celebrating so started with a Kir Royale. A lovely beginning to a dinner that just kept getting better and better. Keep up the good work. Can't... More

Three of us went for dinner on a very quiet Thursday night in February. Good friendly service. Decent Pinot Grigio and Malbec. Starters consumed were excellent chicken livers in cream and cognac, crab terrine. Mains really good Lemon Sole and Duck. Too full for dessert, but food very good all round, French inspired and quite traditional. Would definitely go back... More

No 6 is just a stone's throw away from the town centre - come along, sit outside and sip an aperitif with some juicy, marinated olives. Order your Buckland Newton venison steak, Lyme Bay kings scallops or the freshly delivered Gurnard and indulge yourself with an exceptional dessert. Even, if you are in for a short lunch, there is plenty on the menu to get your taste buds going.
