We were with friends looking for a cafe for a sandwich when we saw the menu for the Junction which, at £6.50 for 2 courses, was nearly as cheap as a sandwich. Two people had ham, egg and chips (3 slices of ham, 2 eggs and lovely chips) and two had the vegetarian tart with new potatoes and salad, which... More

Went in here for tea after finishing a course with DCC. They have an extensive menu including a set day menu, good range of drinks. It does need some updating as it feels a bit rundown especially the toilets as they were a bit dirty. The staff are friendly and professional. We'd definitely go again as the food was good... More

Visited today for lunch, a party of 3 adults and a baby in a pram and had no problems finding a suitable spacious area to eat. The pub is a fantastic size with lots of space, and felt very clean. The staff were lovely and friendly, the food arrived quick, all at the same time and was hot. We were... More

Large family meal to celebrate a special birthday. We had a lovely table in our own area, and the service was fab and fast. Food was lovely and the menu has a large variety to choose from. Will definitely be back :)

My partner and I were visiting Dorset and decided to stop off in Dorchester to find somewhere to eat. We liked the look of The Junction from the outside and went in to see if there were any tables free. It is a very popular venue but we managed to find a quiet table away from the main area. We...

My 11 year old son and I had been to the Bovington Tank Museum and after a long day the taxi driver told us of no lodging in Wool UK, to jump the short train ride to Dorchester. It was raining hard and we were directed to the cozy little Inn the Junction and it was just the experience we... More

A typical Marstons pub restaurant. Good value for money with a pint of forty niner at £2.99. traditional pub fare. Ok if you're in a rush and need fodder quickly. Very helpful bar staff and the Gammon Steak was very tasty and was good value for money
