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. Many of which are now offering takeaway options delivered to your door or for collection ready for a day trip.

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 The Anglebury 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.

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 our famous Purbeck Ice-Cream with flavours including Banoffee Ripple, Chilli Red and Chocolate Orange.

Treat yourself to some fine dining

Indulge in a scrumptious meal or afternoon tea at The Priory. You can take tea on the lawns next to the river or sample one of their delicious menus for lunch or dinner. Perfect for ladies who lunch or as part of a romantic getaway.

Tastes of Asia

If your taste buds are searching for some Eastern spices, The 29029 Restaurant is just what you’re looking for. Serving contemporary Indian and Nepalese cuisine, the chef’s creations include Piyaza Chicken, Kachee Biriani and Kathmandu Curry! They also provide a takeway service too – perfect for cosy nights in.

Let them eat cake
