Nothing particularly memorable about the beers (Dorset Brewing Company's Tom Browns and Copper Street's 871 and Egbert's Stone) but there is a fantastic Syrian takeaway on the premises. Both pub and and the long beer garden need sprucing up.

Tom Browns is the brewery tap for the Dorset Brewing Company (DBC). All 6 ales were from the brewery - Jurassic, Dorset Knob, Great Expectations, Durdle Door, Tom Browns & Flashmans Clout. There was also a handpull for Lilleys Bee Sting Perry. The interior is basic and bare boarded. It's a nice enough drinking environment. But it felt like it attracts a young and fairly trendy crowd. The gents toilets were out of order. So the ladies had become unisex! CAMRA discount offered for ales, but unfortunately not the perry. Could be better with guest ales and a recognition of real cider and perry. Still a reasonable option if in Dorchester though.

Bit of a traditional pub offering 8 or so beers from the Dorset Brewery Company and guests. I tried the Tom Brown at £3 which wasn't great - weak and pretty tasteless - then had Dark Star Hophead at £3.30 which was great. Not very busy on an early Saturday afternoon.

Still I'd try it again.

Much better than the other pubs that I visited on a recent trip to Dorch. The locals seemed to be in agreement as Tom Browns was packed out for a cover band and skittles, with plenty of people necking down the excellent regional ales (I had a pint of the eponymous Tom Browns, which was liquid perfection).

Home of the Dorset Brewing Company so as you would expect a decent selection of their own beers on offer which were good.

Was busy on the Saturday afternoon I visited but it was not a problem to get served, a good drinking pub.
