Food and Drink

Out and about around the Showground you will find numerous outlets for food and drink. 

Catering Units

Our catering units are specially selected to provide good quality refreshments at affordable prices.  Enjoy local hog roasts, speciality burgers and free range chicken in one of our 3 food courts.  You can also relax with some great freshly ground coffee or tuck into to a bag of fresh doughnuts!  Our ice cream is provided by Purbeck Ice Cream, whose ice cream is produced on their farm in the Isle of Purbeck using local, fresh milk.

Food Halls

Our two food halls are the popular destination for a wide range of delicious food and drink.  Our Dorset Food Hall features producers from Dorset selling a great selection of wares from fudge to free range meats, preserves, cheeses and cider.  You can also enjoy a live cookery demonstration in the Dorset Food Hall presented by local chefs.  The Food Hall showcases regional and international food including olives, breads, wine and cooking sauces.  With over 60 stands in our Food Halls you will be sure to find something to tempt your tastebuds!
