OUR FOOD

The local producers are a constant source of inspiration to our menu at The Anchor Inn and we feel the spirit of Dorset really shines through.  Home to so many interesting and dedicated people who grow and nurture plants and animals, West Dorset is a wonderful place in which to run a kitchen.

THE VERY BEST DISHES WITH EXCEPTIONAL, LOCAL DORSET PRODUCE

Our Head Chef is Jean Paul De Ronne, a passionate wild food and foraging aficionado who has previously worked under BBC MasterChef winner Matt Follas. Jean Paul is incredibly talented in conjuring up dishes using the region’s exceptional fish, shellfish, game, farm meats and artisanal foods.

Soon to appear on The Anchor menu are foraged foods such as sea kale and pickled seaweed harvested from the Jurassic Coast along with the promise of wild angelica, chestnuts and pineapple weed.

A MENU FOR ALL TASTES

Our award-winning menu suits all tastes from the walker seeking refueling to the serious gourmet looking to settle in for a bowl of super fresh shellfish washed down with a bottle of fantastic wine.

FRESH PRODUCE FROM BOTH LAND AND SEA

We have a beautiful selection of fresh fish and what better place to enjoy the fruits of the sea than on the doorstep of the beautiful ocean? Meat-eaters fear not! We equally have a fabulous selection of hearty and delicious meat dishes for all of you land lovers too so there really is something for everyone.
