Listed below are the candidates for the Best Restaurants in Dorset (in no particular order). These are just 35 of my personal favourites, ones I’d be happy to recommend to a close friend or family member visiting Dorset. There are bound to be a few excellent ones I’ve missed out or not had the chance to visit yet so I will try to keep the list updated when I discover a new ones. The list is 100% independent and I have never accepted free meals, drinks or payments from any of the businesses listed below.
