Two couples, we stopped for a light lunch. There was a good selection on offer. The crab and crayfish sandwiches had plenty of filling with a choices of white or brown bread.

Had a cream tea which had plenty of cream AND 2 jars of jam. Very busy but good quick service from friendly helpful staff Ideal if you want to stop for a quick bite with a varied menu on offer.

Once again an excellent meal in Taste. This time it was pie night. Wonderful Dexter beef pie with a great starter and pudding. Would certainly go again. Staff were great as always.

The moment you walk into Taste you will be guaranteed to be greeted by staff, especially the bubbly assistant manager. I quite often pop in for a healthy option lunch of salmon & crayfish salad after a mornings retail therapy in Dorchester! The menus is certainly extensive, as they do have a very busy kitchen with chefs beavering away. Chef... More

Having got fed up waiting to be served in Costa, we took a walk around Dorchester and can across this little café and ordered a couple of lattes to go. My partner likes his coffee strong so asked for an extra shot in his. He didn't need to in all honesty. The coffee here is well made and flavourful. A... More

Audrey had scrambled eggs on Granary toast, I had what they call a three item breakfast . Two eggs 2 slices of bacon and one sausage, toast . The quality of the bacon and sausage was excellent , and obviously well sourced. Good service and worth every penny of the £ 12.00 with x 2 pots of tea.

Thank you for taking the time to post your review, It is great to see that the quality produce that we use is recognized, we try to source as much of our produce locally, it costs a little more, but we think its worth it. More

Went for breakfast with my son waited 15 minutes just to be spoken too. when the food came you could tell it was cheap food trying to look nice. Cold toast warm latte will not be back again. Weatherspoon is a better idea!

I cant believe you ate in one of our establishments, we are constantly being recognized for great customer service, and our warm welcome. To say the breakfast was using poor quality ingredients is utter rubbish, I can assure you that we buy top quality ingredients and it is cooked by professional chefs. The latte would have been made by one... More
