Opened in 2002, the Poet Laureate is Poundbury’s original pub and is part of the first phase of the Poundbury development, Dorchester. The Poet Laureate is situated in a Pummery Square, which has ample parking, outdoor seating, and resides in an incredibly peaceful environment.
The new owners, Darren and Gemma, have added their own touch over the last few months whilst still retaining the traditional pub atmosphere.
It has an excellent reputation for food which, where possible, is sourced locally and freshly cooked. They have introduced an extensively stocked bar with a wide selection of spirits to suit everyone’s taste.
