High Chairs and Termites in Dorchester

07/07/2019 Leave a comment

I have a real soft spot for Dorchester. It’s a great town and it’s part of West Dorset CAMRA’s demise. It was and still is a Beer Town, so is always worth a visit.

Dorchester - Brewery Square

The local Spoons The Royal Oak – rear entrance

The Royal Oak - Wetherspoons

And from the Front

The Royal Oak - Front - Wetherspoons

My favourite tables along the wall are now high tables, I’m not sure why. Anyway, always a friendly welcome here. Opens at 08:00, Bar opens at 09:00.

The view from the High Table

All tastes are covered for in Dorchester. Me, I think The Teddy Bear Museum is the way to go.

I’m not sure what happened to Tom Browns? It used to the Tap for the Dorset Brewing Co but now it seems to be a semi open bring your own food Greene King Pub. A bit of a shame. However The Blue Raddle is just around the corner.

Tom Browns - Ex DBC Pub?

A Good Sign. A Very Good Sign.

The Blue Raddle

A traditional Pub with traditional opening hours. However with covers of Private Eye on the walls of the Gents. Reminds me of the days when Spoons used to have The Daily Telegraph on the walls of the Gents.

What more could you ask for and yes the WiFi was good, free and not captive portal. The Ales and Ciders were pretty good too.

The bar of The Blue Raddle

I have to be honest, this is my favourite Pub in Dorchester. Great and varied selection of both cask ales and bottles and cans. Great people who run it. Very clean toilets and wonderful punters.

The Convivial Rabbit - Micro Pub

Be nice to the Termites, they love Cask Ale too

The Convivial Rabbit - Bar and Chalk Board

They have Jugs too.

Half Pint Jug

And I haven’t mentioned Goldies or the Brewhouse and Kitchen. The sun shone in Dorchester too.
