About The Ollerod

The Ollerod is an award winning restaurant in the beautiful picturesque town of Beaminster - 10 minutes from the incredible Jurassic Coast.
A 14th century restaurant with rooms, featuring mullioned stone windows and a wonderful walled garden, The Ollerod was bought by former Michelin star chef Chris Staines and his partner Silvana Bandini in 2018. They have created a perfect balance of friendly and warm service that is still attentive, inspired and delicious food that is unpretentious, and an elegant and sophisticated atmosphere that is also relaxed and fun.
On the menus - small plates and a la carte - you will find a variety of dishes, some with an Asian influence; Chris is a master at introducing flavours and balancing them perfectly.

“An unpretentious foodie bolthole in a gorgeous corner of Dorset, providing hospitality with a mile wide smile”
- The Sunday Times

“Inside this caramel stone house is a true destination restaurant with rooms from a chef with a Michelin-starred background.”
- The Telegraph

Good food and service. Lovely place to eat, atmosphere is difficult to judge in an outside environment. but those eating were happy and enjoying the afternoon.

Fantastic lunch. Each course was extremely tasty, a real mix of cuisines, very well presented. Highlights were the bao starter and the strawberry dessert. Service also excellent. Shame we were just passing through. If we lived closer we’d be regulars for sure.

So wonderful to be able to dine again at the Ollerod after months of lock down. We are so very fortunate to have such an excellent restaurant in our local town. Exceptional food as always.

What a great way to come out of lockdown. We had the most marvellous lunch at the Ollerod on 15/4. . Every aspect was just great. Attentive service and cosy blankets. Wonderful food and wine. We can’t fault it and will return as soon as we can. Thank you!

Rushed through a meal we’d really been looking forward to and paid a lot for as a special treat because we weren’t seeing family over Christmas!

Even during the pandemic the staff could not have been more helpful and pleasant. The food was as wonderful as ever and we even managed to buy two loaves of their amazing bread to take home. Will definitely be back again, the set lunch is fantastic value and the wine choice excellent.

We had a wonderful lunch at the restaurant, my wife is gluten free, the could accommodate her so she could have anything off of the lunchtime menu which was great. Will be returning a wonderful place to eat.
