Our Pub

Why Our Pub is Great

The Trumpet Major pub is a great place for the family to eat out in Dorchester! With 170 seats, a large beer garden, patio area and children's play area, we’re a real family-friendly pub that serves epic meals available seven days a week.

Fancy something traditional? Head for our pub menu. It’s stuffed with a variety of main meals including your pub classics.

Kids are going to love our children’s menu. The littlest monsters in the family can choose from all-time favourites, or they can enjoy small-person-sized versions of our favourite pub food.

Let’s not forget the bar… Ours is well stocked with quality cask ales, premium draughts, and great wines. We’ve also got a full range of soft drinks hot and cold—perfect for enjoying with one of our decadent puds!

About Our Food

You’ll find just what you want to on the menu, from tender grills to scrumptious burgers and comforting pub classics. Begin with generous sharer platters, and then choose from an irresistible array of goodies. We’re fussy about our food. It has to be spot on. Steaks are masterfully chargrilled and complimented by sides specifically designed to bring out their succulence and slightly sweet, smoky flavour. Pub classics so heart-warming you’ll be tempted to have them again and again!

We know sharing good food and drink with friends and family makes an ok day extra special…that’s what it means when we bring you all the things you love and more.
