Brunch in Dorset

Forget breakfast, Dorset loves to brunch. There's no better way to kick off a weekend. It takes place late enough to allow a lie-in, but early enough that the day still stretches ahead of you. Plus, day drinking is as good as encouraged. What’s not to love?

From pancakes drowned in syrup and fruit, to your classic full english breakfast, these dishes are considered by many to offer the ultimate hangover cure. Here's our list of the best brunch in Dorset places to get your fill of eggs and bloody Marys...
