Our Inspector's view

Our award-winning restaurant is at the heart of Mortons Manor and sources from local Purbeck suppliers where possible for fresh ingredients, that together create a delicious and memorable experience. Head Chef, Ed Firth plays a very important part in creating a tasty dining experience at Mortons Manor. His years of experience and wealth of knowledge, along with his love of both traditional British and international cuisine come together to create incredible dishes that are both classical but exciting. His dedication and passion has ensured the restaurant has been awarded Two Rosettes for the past 12 years. Our gorgeous restaurant has a bright and spacious feel, creating a comfortable and intimate dining experience. White table cloths and comfortable chairs all adds to the fine dining experience. The large windows gives a garden room atmosphere with views onto either our attractive terrace or our pretty herb garden. Private Dining is available in our Castle Room, which can comfortably cater for up to 20 guests, perfect for private parties and celebrating with family and friends. The Castle room oozes charm with 3 window seats and mullioned windows. An impressive stone fireplace sits comfortably within this room.

About The area

Discover Dorset

Dorset means rugged varied coastlines and high chalk downlands. Squeezed in among the cliffs and set amid some of Britain’s most beautiful scenery is a chain of picturesque villages and seaside towns. Along the coast you’ll find the Lulworth Ranges, which run from Kimmeridge Bay in the east to Lulworth Cove in the west. Together with a stretch of East Devon, this is Britain’s Jurassic Coast, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, noted for its layers of shale and numerous fossils embedded in the rock. Among the best-known natural landmarks on this stretch of the Dorset coast is Durdle Door, a rocky arch that has been shaped and sculpted to perfection by the elements. The whole area has the unmistakable stamp of prehistory.

Away from Dorset’s magical coastline lies a landscape with a very different character and atmosphere, but one that is no less appealing. Here, winding, hedge-lined country lanes lead beneath lush, green hilltops to snug, sleepy villages hidden from view and the wider world. The people of Dorset are justifiably proud of the achievements of Thomas Hardy, its most famous son, and much of the county is immortalised in his writing.
