A modern, bustling British pub, Trumpet Major in Dorset caters for the whole family. An extensive menu of pub grub and international recipes are served, with a separate gluten-free menu, al fresco seating, and play areas for the kids.

The Trumpet Major menu offers a great selection of crowd pleasing recipes all through the day. Generously filled sandwiches and jackets at lunch are popular choices, and there are light bites including BBQ or piri piri chicken wings, and classic prawn cocktail. Pub favourites include beer battered fish and chips, steak and ale pie, as well as the extensive range of burgers. There are vegetarian pasta recipes, aromatic curries, a succulent selection of steaks, and a carvery on Wednesdays and Sundays.

Carefully selected cask ales from Marston's Brewery are served at Trumpet Major Dorchester, as well as a full wine list and range of spirits. Sumptuous desserts include lemon and mandarin sponge with custard, New York cheesecake, and large ice cream sundaes.

With the al fresco area being a popular draw in the warmer weather, Trumpet Major sits 4 minutes' drive Dorchester South Rail Station.

    My husband and I chose to eat here regularly. When we have family and friends down it's our first choice to bring them. Staff are so welcoming, food is of good quality and value for money. Nothing is too much trouble. Environment comfortable and relaxed.

    Although a busy Sunday lunchtime, we were served very promptly by a friendly and efficient waitress. The carvery was excellent value with plenty of vegetable choice. We will definitely return.
