Now called the Trumpet Major again. Not a bad pub, does a two for one on main meals offer. Had a reasonable steak there but nothing out of the ordinary.
Bit similar to a Weatherspoons type pub.

Visited on a hot lunchtime. Lovely cool interior. Quiet atmosphere. Food was tasty and rapidly served. Good value too. Beer was good. Shame the barman was displaying the fact he was not enjoying his job and would rather be out in the sun.

Now reopened as "The Thomas Hardye". Very much food orientated. TV's, pool tables, dart boards all removed. Pub quiz still happens on a tuesday. A lot of pubs in Dorchester are heading in the same direction because of the Eldridge Pope brewery takeover by one of the wealthiest men in England (forget his name). Various are set to close and be refurbished to compete with the Wetherspoon stranglehold!

Good pub for families, particularly in summer. Large play area with plenty of outdoor seating and patio heaters for the evenings. Inside is a separate bar area where most of the regulars reside and watch the sport on tv etc. There is also an area with 2 pool tables and dart board. The main area of the pub is a restaurant with its own bar. Food is very good (most of the time) and staff are extremely friendly. Usually a couple of ales on pump and a good selection of lagers. Food can take a while and be prone to a few errors during busy periods.
