Re-opened in 2020 and looks and feels like the hotel bar it is. My pint of Copper Street's 871 lost it's condition fairly quickly; didn't try the Piddle or the Otter Amber. Wine seemed to be the choice of drink here.

Looks like it used to be an impressive building. But it's currently closed down and derelict. A ghost walk meets outside the entrance though!

Stayed one night recently - very comfortable and clean with good service. One end of the bar now has comfy settees whilst the other end is set out for dining. Food was very good. Only one beer on hand pump available but it was fine. Car park at rear and in the centre of Dorchester. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here over the past weekend, lovely hotel (well I would say that, they upgraded us without being asked!), very nice, polite staff. However, the beer, although excellent quality, was very pricey as was the food but as the Blue Raddle is only just round the corner I would definitely stay here again.

As noted, unrecognisable from the GBG description. It is clearly
food-orientated, although I managed to find one table that wasn't set for dining. Two interesting ales were on offer. Can't complain about the service, although I was almost the only customer at that point. Elderly diners then began to filter in. Although this is the very opposite of a "rough pub", the atmosphere was stll offputtingly sepulchral. If the dark panelling
and "waiting for God" clientelle weren't enough, the piped
music included a rendition "Ave Maria".
