Formerly, The Bridge House Hotel, this 13th century restaurant-with-rooms (and a secret walled garden) has been taken over by Chris Staines (ex-Foliage) and Silvana Bandini (ex-The Pig hotels); small plates or meals use Dorset produce to realise a globally wandering menu. Supper clubs and 'foodie breaks' are also on the menu.
Harden's survey result
“So lucky to have such a venue locally!” Formerly, The Bridge House Hotel, this 13th century restaurant-with-rooms (and a secret walled garden) was taken over by Chris Staines (ex-Foliage) and Silvana Bandini (ex-The Pig hotels) in early 2018 and it’s a spot that’s “particularly delightful in summer with its large outside area and conservatory”. Dorset produce is used to realise a high quality, eclectic menu of small plates – “delicious”, but the experience is sometimes let down by “staff lacking training”.
Dating from 13th Century The Ollerod is a magical Dorset country house full of character – the product of generations of history passing through its doors. Originally a clergy house, it now has its own unique style. ‘Ollerod’ is the old Dorset dialect, from the times of Thomas Hardy, for the Cowslip.
Situated in the picturesque town of Beaminster, which borders 3 counties, The Ollerod is the perfect place to explore an incredibly beautiful, and untouched, part of England.
