Dorset's well known country house Hotel, Stock Hill, features an award-winning restaurant which is open to non-residents for both lunch and dinner.  Please call 01747 823626 to make your table reservation.

We also offer a very comprehensive, daily changing vegetarian menu, each dish being prepared specially with the same skill and care. Please click here for a sample Menu


In compliance with UK law Stock Hill is totally non-smoking throughout the hotel.

Please note:
We don't publish our menus for the simple reason that they change every day.  A published page would not reflect the exciting variation of food on offer. Please ask to see a sample menu when you visit Stock Hill.

Peter Hauser "I don't cook like anyone else, I cook like me"

Peter Hauser's food is an interesting blend of classic French and English cuisine highlighted with an underlying influence of his native Austrian upbringing. Peter trained in Austria at the Hotel Schwechaterhof in Linz.  He is an innovative, creative chef who enjoys experimenting with unusual combinations that tingle the taste buds. Many of his Austrian influenced dishes appear on the daily changing menu.

The result is both original and different. His kitchen philosophy is to prepare dishes using the simplest, freshest ingredients, including fine local produce, such as game and meat from the surrounding countryside, freshly caught fish and shellfish from the nearby Dorset coast along with home grown vegetables and herbs from his walled kitchen garden.  Peter's refreshing view on his culinary skill is, "I don't cook like anyone else, I cook like me". When you have visited Stock Hill you will understand just what this means. 

Take a look at Peter's recipes and you'll see what he means. To complement the food, Stock Hill's restaurant features fine wines and the sort of immaculate service that you would expect from a highly acclaimed, award winning Country House Hotel; but there is a difference, there's anticipation in the atmosphere and an air of excitement as the food is served. There are no particular events that bring about this ambience - it's simply there; the staff, the eclectic decor, the house, the views of the landscaped gardens, the atmosphere of calm and true relaxation, coupled with friendly people with the knowledge of just how to make your visit really enjoyable. If you are looking for a special restaurant for Ladies who lunch or a business event then Stock Hill offers the ambience and service that makes all the difference.

Osbert Lancaster, whose Grandfather once lived in the house. An original Lancaster cartoon adorns the wall.  

And, if after a day of exploring the Dorset countryside you are desperately in need of a cup of tea, then on your return to Stock Hill you are offered a freshly brewed pot of a tea of your choice and home made cake, either to be served in your room, or in the comfort of one of the lounges as part of the service.

Breakfast time
Of course, no stay in an English Country House Hotel can be complete without the vital experience of a truly inspiring full English breakfast, though of course a full continental selection is also available. Stock Hill will certainly not disappoint. Its extensive breakfast menu is the perfect start to the day and is presented in the Lancaster Room, named after the famous cartoonist
