Having recently reached a "significant age", I wanted to get all my local friends together to enjoy their company doing what I enjoy most - eating good food and drinking good wine. The venue was a no-brainer - it had to be No. 6, which I have reviewed before. Because of numbers, it was necessary to have 2 meals, one... More

Our only regret about this restaurant is that we live 60 miles away and will not be able to visit as often as we would like. The ambience of the place is warm and cosy and the service is friendly and exemplary. We both had a "fish out" with fish courses for our starters and mains . The fish was... More

This is tucked away just off the high street and although a regular visitor to Dorchester I was unaware of this little gem just a few minutes walk from the main shopping avenue. Thank goodness we found it for I enjoyed what is probably the best seafood pie I have ever had. It was absolutely wonderful stuffed with large chunks... More

I like this restaurant. They remember you and the service is friendly, courteous and attentive without being overbearing. The food is good, honest food well cooked/presented and has a specials board which takes advantage of being close to the sea and what is in season.

Thank chrissybrooks19

No 6 is just a stone's throw away from the town centre - come along, sit outside and sip an aperitif with some juicy, marinated olives. Order your Buckland Newton venison steak, Lyme Bay kings scallops or the freshly delivered Gurnard and indulge yourself with an exceptional dessert. Even, if you are in for a short lunch, there is plenty on the menu to get your taste buds going.
