As new owners of the hotel and restaurant,  Leonora, Graham and family welcome you to the Poachers Pocket. As discerning customers ourselves, our mission is to provide a high quality service with a warm and friendly atmosphere to all our customers, existing and new. We started a Bed & Breakfast in Dorset which was rated by the AA as 4 star highly commended and rapidly became No 10 out of 65 B&Bs in the area on Trip Advisor. 

We have some exciting plans for the future. One of these is to refurbish the kitchen with a new ventilation system and a state-of-the-art grill which seals in the juices and flavours of the food cooked on it. We will also be sourcing our foodstuffs from local producers where possible.

Regrettably the kitchen refurbishment means we will have to close the restaurant in the latter half of February (dates to be confirmed) but we should be back in business before Mothering Sunday. But do pop in for a drink or two - we would love to meet you!
