The Coach House

Thursday 19th March – The Coach House is now closed, we look forward to welcoming you again soon.

The Coach House (formerly The Sawmill Café) serves a delicious selection of light meals, burgers, gourmet sandwiches (developed with the Earl of Sandwich himself!) and cakes with a fine selection of teas, soft drinks and outstanding coffee. Brunch is also available from 10am, and there is a Sunday roast each Sunday.

All our menu items use locally sourced ingredients wherever possible, including Washingpool Farm, Downhouse Farm, Evershot Bakery, Clipper Teas & Baboo Gelato.

The Coach House is licensed and offers a selection of wines, beers and cider. There is plenty of space to sit inside the converted 17th century building, or you are welcome to sit outside and watch the resident cockerels, chickens, ducks, giant tortoises and doves.

For bookings or further information on our menu, including our daily specials, please call 01308 863348 or email

The Coach House Cafe is commended in the Dorset Tourism Awards 2019
