Plans for new steakhouse restaurant in Dorchester

Dorchester Steakhouse Limited is asking for a premises licence for the 30 Trinity Street property which used to be occupied by Cow & Apple, until its closure earlier this year.

The new business is requesting mid-day to 11pm opening each day with the sale of alcohol for the same hours.

The application asks for the premises licence for the sale of alcohol to start from September 25th.

Included in the details, submitted to Dorset Council, is the request for a restaurant on the ground flood, including a dining area, a bar, disabled toilet and kitchen and a beer garden to the rear.

The upstairs area is listed for use as “function room and customer toilets”.

All public areas are to be included in the premises licence, if agreed.

The company has named Mr Samuel Ellis to be its designated premises supervisor who will be responsible for the operation of the business and compliance with licensing laws.

Mr Ellis, 23, is one of two directors named on company documents, first registered in July 2023 with a business address at Lynch Lane, Weymouth.

Comments on the application can be made to the Dorset Council licensing team until September 22nd.
