Young restaurateur James Fowler and his dedicated team are breathing refreshing and much needed, new life into East Dorset’s food and drink scene. Infused with traditions of bygone eras and spiked with the skill of expert mixologist Jon Lister and Head Chef Quentin Royles, 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 new bar and eatery, 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 take on classic cocktails from the 1920’s 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”
The Larder House offers an extensive bar with cask ale, European wines, and crafted spirits. The bar team are also all barista trained offering coffees that rival the countries best coffee bars.
