The Beaminster Brasserie is at the heart of the BridgeHouse Hotel - a small, relaxed 13th Century country town hotel. Apart from amazingly healthy food made from Dorset produce, the Beaminster is renowned for its outdoor eating area beneath a vaulted canvass roof - a great place for families to eat without the fear of upsetting others and great once the kids either finish eating or lose patience as they can enjoy the garden while the grown-ups continue to relax with their food!
The cafe is set within a 100 acres of stunning woodland and meadows that make up the Green Flag Award Worcester Country Park. This fantastic space also boasts two wooden adventure playgrounds and public events fields. The Orchard Cafe has a fantastic award winning seasonal menu created from, locally sourced ingredients. Our products are mostly Free-range, organic, Fair-trade, but always yummy! The kids menu is a cut above the usual 'with fries' option! Our homemade cakes are extremely yummy and when you come you will have to try our famous Carrot & Walnut cake!
