A TASTE of France will soon be on offer at Brewery Square in Dorchester.

Côte Brasserie is set to be the latest leading name to open in the county town’s thriving urban regeneration project.

Waterhouse director Andrew Wadsworth said: “Côte Brasserie is a great quality addition to the scheme- their terrific French cuisine is perfect for Dorchester and will be a significant draw to Brewery Square.”

Transforming 11 acres of the former Eldridge Pope Brewery in Dorchester’s town centre, the £100 million mixed use Brewery Square scheme, by urban regeneration specialists Waterhouse & Resolution Property, is the largest town centre regeneration in the South West.

Côte joins Carluccios, Wagamama, Zizzi, Pizza Express, Nando’s, Vivo Lounge, Brewhouse & Kitchen, Simon’s Deli and Café Panini alongside a new Odeon Cinema and a 76 bed Premier Inn, which opened last year.

The Good Food Guide describes Côte Brasserie as: ‘Robust French flavours, cheery continental vibes and brilliant value for money’.

The restaurant will also complement the leading fashion names in the scheme which include Hobbs, Phase Eight, Gerry Weber and Jones Bootmaker.

Harald Samuelsson, Côte Brasserie joint managing director, said: “We are delighted to have found this location in Brewery Square in Dorchester and to be part of such a vibrant community. We’ve spent time getting the right site. It’s a premium feel but still very accessible which is what Côte Brasserie is all about. Our value for money offering is reflected in the two course weekday lunch and early evening menu for £9.95p.”

Commercial letting agents for Brewery Square are Savills and Nash Bond. Matthew Porter of Teague & Capital acted for Côte Brasserie.

Côte will serve classic brasserie dining from breakfast through to lunch and dinner, daily.

Inspired by new trends in Paris, award-winning Côte is dedicated to serving authentic dishes with a modern twist, using high quality produce at great prices.
