From farm to fork

Many of Purbeck’s eateries pride themselves on using local produce. From fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat and seafood to wine, beer, cider, ice-cream and chocolate – they are all produced in Purbeck.

The Dorset Food and Drink branding means you can rest assured that the produce you buy has been grown or made locally – look out for the logo on menus and at markets and farm shops.

Savour the flavour

Looking to quench your thirst? Make some time to stop by at one of our local micro-breweries and try a pint of Fossil Fuel!  The Isle of Purbeck is also home to two vineyards that produce red, white and sparkling wines.

Visit one of our markets or farm shops to buy some scrumptious Dorset Apple Cake or divine Dorset Blue Vinney cheese. While you’re there, pick up a jar of honey, chutney or jam to take home as a little reminder of your holiday to Purbeck.

Foodie Festivals

Tickle your taste buds at the many food and drink festivals and events that take place during the year. Swanage Fish Festival, Church Knowle Food Fayre and VenFest are just a few to whet your appetite.

Pack up a picnic

Heading to the beach or for a day out and want to take a picnic? Get a takeaway lunch from one of our cafés or head to our markets, farm shops, butchers and bakers for some tasty treats.
