The restaurant was packed but you don't mind a little wait when the staff where working flat out. Enjoyed a great value meal.

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.

    Lovely surroundings, nice meal, have the carvery, was only warm, but good, excellent prices well below what I expected for 5 adults with drinks and pudding. Lovely staff, we meet friends halfway, will look forward to the next visit.

    Food great, served hot . Waitress friendly and attentive
    Only disappointing aspect of visit was that the 2 young lads on the bar did not acknowledge, or smile, but did just about manage a thank you on completion of transaction !
