MasterChef finalist Marcus Wilcox’s modern British cuisine takes in a “great tasting menu (four, six or eight courses, and there’s also a set option) with perfectly matched wines”; it seats just 16, adding to the “quiet” intimacy of a meal here.

This “fabulous” little restaurant showcases young former MasterChef finalist Marcus Wilcox’s “exquisite” modern British cooking. “There are few covers, but that helps make it so special”.

MasterChef finalist Marcus Wilcox, who took up the baton here in May 2015, seems to be an able replacement for former owners Russell & Elena Brown at this tiny 16-seat dining room, turning out “well-crafted” and “tasty” British food that’s “unlike anything else in Dorset”.

For 30 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
