About The Larder House
Founder James Fowler (2014 World Class UK Bartender of the year) and his highly skilled & dedicated team are breathing a refreshing and much needed, new life into East Dorset’s food and drink scene. Infused with traditions of bygone eras and through continuous researching into the greatest foods from around the U.K & Europe, The Larder House is rapidly winning the hearts of the countries foodie elite and local residents.
The wood fired oven is at the core of the restaurant & bar, but what’s most inspiring is the seamless synergy between the kitchen and front of house. The enthusiasm is abundant and the research that goes into their offering is intriguing. This ensures that everything you order has a story to tell, be it their range of unordinary back bar spirits or the range of charcuterie & cheeses that they showcase. The Larder House is playful, accessible and carries a buzz in the air that is difficult to describe. What’s important though, is that it gives you the feeling you have stumbled upon something very special, almost secret.
It’s a project for us where we really do serve pure passion. We pay homage to the origins of true food whether local or from around Europe. Beyond what we offer now is a lot of learning where we are pushing ourselves to be ambassadors to the foods and drink that we all personally love to enjoy. We don’t just serve it, we really do live it!!
The Larder House opened its doors back in January 2011 and will continually evolve by discovering new products and creating its unique portfolio of offerings. As a customer you will really see the restaurant & team grow & specialise. Especially when you attend one of their showcase nights whereby the team give a unique food & libation pairing event covering all aspects and flavours of the chosen product. Previous showcase nights have shown expertise in Sherry wines, Offal, Port, Absinthe, Single Malt Whisky & Gin.
Booked on behalf of guests saying at our local B&B. They were very happy with all aspects of their experience with you. Thanks!
Although we eat here quite often, we hadn’t been for a Sunday roast before. Excellent food as always and we thought this was particularly good value.
Great food & service. Always love the overall experience
Fab food, staff and atmosphere as always!
Never disappoints, great food in a quirky, fun setting
Possibly asked too many times how is your food, both with the starter and the main, all of which was lovely.
Great place, lovely and fresh food, i love daily printed menu and lovely customer service :) thank you.
This is our second visit to the Larder House and we will definitely be back, food is extremely tasty and well presented. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable. Would recommend to others.
Another fantastic. Family birthday meal - sublime food with excellent service and atmosphere 👌😊
Always delightful staff and the best food around.
Delicious as always!
Lovely as always...best roast around...will be back
Incredible food, good selection of drinks and the service is spot on. We all loved it and we'll be back.
Great food and service
What a fantastic find. Great place with enthusiastic staff, who clearly care about the restaurant’s ethos. Definitely one of our best meals out in about ten years of visiting Dorset & Devon. If only we had somewhere like this closer to home...
We recently ate Sunday lunch at The Larder House which was delicious. I struggle to find many restaurants that can provide a decent Sunday roast as it's rarely as nice as home cooked but my roast beef meal was yummy. I would thoroughly recommend.
We had a wonderful Sunday lunch with you and despite arriving early had a fabulous time in the bar with a few cheeky drinks. Great food, great service - what a perfect little gem. We will definitely be coming back!
Excellent Sunday roast, great service and lovely atmosphere out on terrace. Thank you will be back soon!
Very knowledgeable and attentive staff
We booked a celebratory business meeting, quarterly review, all day lunch at the Larder house. The entire team led by Katie looked after us exceptionally, the food and drink were exquisite the staff were ultra knowledgeable, professional and slick to the very highest level and standards that we've experienced anywhere; beautiful decor and surroundings. Most crucially the atmosphere generated by the team was warm, super accomodating, inviting, and the overarching tone was fun over snootiness - and fun won every time, and that makes all the difference in the world from going from 5 Stars to 7 Stars if 7 stars were actually available to allocate. What a place! Suffice to say we are now booked in for every quarter of this year, and next year...
Came here for mine and my Girlfriend's 4th anniversary and could not fault the experience atall. Service was warm and friendly much like the overall atmosphere of the venue and the food was sublime! Started with the Larderhouse sharing board (which was tailored to our needs as im not a fan of blue cheese) and then finished up with the Crab Tagliatelle which is honestly one of the best dishes I've had from a restaurant. Thank you for being the perfect setting for our anniversary
5 stars all round for us. The team never fail to deliver great food, best selection of sherry you’ll find for miles, and great service. Love it here.
Lovely food, great service and amazing cheese.
