A Perfect Venue for a Party in Poundbury

Planning a get-together? We’d love to help, whether you’re thinking of a grand celebration or a quiet dinner for a special birthday. 

Our handsome and spacious upstairs events space is an obvious choice for anyone looking at party venues to hire near Dorchester, with the capacity to host 60 seated guests. Gorgeous decor, historic paintings, and views over Poundbury town square mean it’ll wow your guests, even before they sample our swish buffets.

Or host a smaller party in our mezzanine space, with room for up to 20 seated guests in a relaxed setting suitable for family wakes, christenings, or birthdays.

Our buffets are an ideal choice for parties, encouraging guests to mingle over delicious food. Add one to your party venue hire, or chat to us about a sit down dinner if you’d prefer.
