“One of the very nicest things about life is the way we must regularly stop
whatever it is we are doing and devote our attention to eating.”
Luciano Pavarotti and William Wright
The Grange has been one of Dorset’s favourite restaurants for nearly fifty years.
The head chef Simon Clewlow creates delicious menus using fresh, local, and seasonal produce – the emphasis is on taste and quality.
The Trencherman’s Guide described The Grange as
‘an elegant Dorset dining retreat with a clutch of awards‘.
Served 7.30 – 9.30 am, all week
Start with a buffet of cereals, fruit, juices, compote and yogurt. Then enjoy your cooked breakfast – will it be the traditional full English or will you choose a ‘kings breakfast’ of smoked salmon and creamy scrambled eggs on a toasted English muffin?
Served 12.00 – 1.30 pm, all week
Lunch at The Grange is a relaxed, informal affair. If the weather is fine, you can take drinks in the garden while your food is prepared. Eat your lunch overlooking the garden, watching the wildlife have theirs! After lunch, relax in the lounge or garden over coffee.
Sunday is a day for a traditional Sunday roast.
Served 6.30 – 8.30 pm all week.
Relax in the lounge over an aperitif while you look at the menu and make your selections. You will be led through to the restaurant to dine by candlelight, overlooking the floodlit gardens. Dinner is contemporary English cuisine, served in a relaxed atmosphere by friendly, smiling staff. Back to the lounge after dinner to enjoy coffee and petit fours sitting by the log fire. How every dinner should be served!
“Wonderful steak, excellent service, staff were attentive and friendly,
a good atmosphere; just a joy to dine“
