The Blue Raddle was my second stop in Dorchester after the Colliton Club (not listed on the site). It was easily the best pub in the town and by far the best pub I visited in Dorset this time around. It has a single bar and whilst they serve food, it's predominantly a drinkers' pub. Dogs are welcome. But children aren't. I was greeted by a friendly barmaid and having enquired about ciders and then asked whether I wanted fizzy or traditional (nice to be asked, as so many places immediately direct you to commercial options on keg and in bottles), I was directed to the far end of the bar, where they had Fosseway Somerset Glory & Ham Hill Early Glory. I opted for the latter and it was very pleasant. Ales were Cerne Abbas Coconut Rum Stout, Bath Gem, Butcombe Adam Henson's Rare Breed & Eight Arch Session. If I hadn't been driving, I would have tried the stout. A few people were offered tasters and appeared to like it. A decent pub all round and a rare 8/10 from me.

It's nice to hear that things are much the same as when we looked in here a few years back.

Yes, it was about the best that we could find in the locality back then too.

Excellent 'Real' Pub, beer selection varies and all are good. Food execellent and good friendly service. I'll not bother to look anywhere else in Dorchester again

A fine selection of draught ciders plus a perry.
We were going to eat here as the food looks good but were put off by the rather mediocre selection of mainly 'session strength' beers - the strongest was Spitfire at 4.5%. That's the sort of strength I start at and work my way up!
Odd opening hours - doesn't open until 6.30 in the evening. Go over to Goldies while you're waiting for this place to open, if you're thirsty.

Visited yesterday afternoon for the first time. A pleasant enough, if small, pub that was pretty busy with both diners and drinkers. Odd selection of ales available (Butcome, Tribute, London Pride, St Austell Trelawny) plus several ciders. The Butcome was in fine condition and reasonably priced.
