Eating Out and Takeaways in Wareham

You are spoilt for choice with places to eat and drink in and around Wareham – with everything from riverside restaurants and traditional pubs to award-winning fine dining and cosy tea rooms.

Did you know that the famous author and adventurer T.E. Lawrence (also known as Lawrence of Arabia) used to live and work in nearby Bovington? He used to visit friends in Wareham and would often go to Anglebury House with his friend and fellow author Thomas Hardy for a coffee. You can still see where they used to sit next to the window watching the world go by and discussing literature.

Not just pub grub

You won’t be disappointed with the choice of traditional pubs in and around Wareham. You’ll find everything from Sunday roasts and steaks to Thai, Mediterranean and the freshest, local seafood you can get. And the children and family pooch will be well catered for too with many pubs being family and dog friendly.

Just outside of Wareham Town Centre, The Kings Arms at Stoborough is a traditional thatched pub serving classic pub meals. They are both children and dog friendly and have a large beer garden for enjoying the summer sun.

Fresh and local produce

You’ll be pleased to know that many of our cafés, restaurants and pubs use local produce – everything from milk, butter and eggs to venison, lobster and oysters. And if ice-cream is your weakness, look out for the famous Purbeck Ice-Cream with flavours including Banoffee Ripple, Chilli Red and Chocolate Orange.

Let them eat cake

You cannot possibly visit Dorset without sampling a slice of cake or two! Almost at every turn, you’ll find a tea room or café serving the most mouth-wateringly delicious looking cakes you’ve ever seen.
