Our Ethos “from field to fork” is reflected in our Winter Menu


Our Ethos “from field to fork” is reflected in the menu. We pride ourselves in serving delicious home-made food using only the finest locally sourced ingredients, and are very proud to support many of Dorset’s wonderful food producers.

Our seasonal menu can be enjoyed in our restaurant or ‘alfresco’ on fine afternoons and during the summer time. The day time menu is imaginative, relaxed and informal offering an array of delicious homemade breakfasts, lunches and traditional afternoon teas as well as excellent wines and local beers.

Clavell’s is one of the “Delights of rural Dorset-local seafood, meats and produce” Trip Advisor. In 2013 Clavell’s were thrilled to be awarded the winner of the Best Café or Tea Room in the Taste of Dorset Awards. In 2017 Clavell’s were equally delighted to have achieved a Gold award in the Taste of the West award.

As always it’s a pleasure to serve you, and we hope you enjoy your visit with us!
