What a magnificent August we’ve had. The garden and terrace has been teeming with guests who have been enjoying al fresco dining in the beautiful Dorset sunshine.

We first introduced our outdoor BBQ area at the start of the season when we held our first Summer Market. Such a hit it was, that we realised we couldn’t possibly end the season without another reason to enjoy Dorset’s beauty – and so decided to throw another party! And that means, you’re invited to our Garden Party on Saturday 31 August from midday until 5pm.

Music: Food for the Soul

We’re thrilled to be able to play host to Dorset musician Harry North.  This acoustic guitarist and singer performs all over the county, and even further afield too. Harry will be joining us to provide a wonderful musical backdrop to what we hope will be the perfect afternoon of kicking back in the garden while enjoying wonderful food and drink served by the team.

Entry is free and we invite everyone to visit. Bring the whole family, your furry-friend and even a picnic blanket or two, and relax in our walled garden with us. Food and drink will be available to buy throughout the afternoon.

Finding Us

Finding us is easy. We’re situated at the entrance to Beaminster if travelling from Bridport, opposite Prout Bridge. We do have a parking area but it can become full when we’re busy. If it is,  there is ample parking throughout the town and not too far from us, including a larger parking area behind Yarn Barton, which is about a 5 minute walk from us. Our address is 3 Prout Bridge, Beaminster, Dorset DT8 3AY.

We’re looking forward to having you visit us. Come and enjoy a relaxing day of music and great food with us and enjoy authentic Dorset hospitality!  For more queries, contact us on 01308 862 200 or email us on enquiries@theollerod.co.uk.
