Visited with friends at approx10.00pm on a Saturday night. Externally a nice looking building. Curved serving bar with dance floor area set off to one side, loud music playing, separate dining area. Toilets clean. Staff polite. There is a small car park which can accommodate probably no more than half a dozen cars. There is accommodation, some appears to be... More

Guess what ..... Yes mushrooms were in the meal but NOT in the List of ingredients !!!When we enquired why we were told that mushrooms were not an allergic... More

We were looking for a basic and clean place to spend a couple of nights. Unfortunately, the Junction Hotel did not deliver. As we walked into our room, the first thing we noticed were the stained carpet and walls. The bed didn't look much better, although the sheets were clean. The mattress was hard and we were only provided with... More

Staff were pleasant and helpful but the room was dark and dingy with a very heavily stained carpet but a nice shower. Bed was hard as was the one pillow each!! Breakfast was very good and overal the hotel... More

Met an associate for lunch. Did everything right. Friendly, efficient and good value. Polite staff and a great place to sit and catch up. Would recommend to anyone in Dorchester looking for a nice place to meet up and talk business

Enjoyed a lovely lunch in very relaxing surroundings. Beautiful decor with welcoming heritage murals and comfortable seating. We were delighted with the staff who were friendly and professional. Compliments to the Chef. Great food. Will certainly recommend this place for all.

I went to the Junction recently after it had been closed for a week or so to be redecorated etc.. All I can say is that it seems very similar to before it was done up! The place is set up as to have drinkers on one side and diners on the other side.. When I went to order our... More

My husband and I dined at this pub on 13 February 2015. We found the pub very cosy even though it is very big! The staff were really warm and friendly and felt at ease straight away. My husband had the mixed grill (he said it is the best one he has had in ages) and he does eat them... More

I needed to have easy access to the station and the hospital and the junction fitted the bill perfectly, I stayed for two nights, price included breakfast (which was excellent). There was free wi-fi which held the connection very well and there was a full menu for the evening (not included). You may be wondering with all the positives why... More

My wife and I are regulars at the Junction and Albert, the manager, and his very efficient team, have always made us feel most welcome. The rooms are very spacious, warm and comfortable - even though they maybe now in need of another refurbishment. Their advertised 'Good Pub Food' more than lives up to its name, both in terms of...
