The Smuggler’s Inn at Osmington worth a visit (you need to book). A warm hearty lunch at White Stones Art Cafe, or The Sugar Loaf at Easton (both cater for vegans), followed by a walk down to ...

A warm hearty lunch at White Stones Art Cafe, or The Sugar Loaf at Easton (both cater for vegans), followed by a walk down to Church Ope Cove (very peaceful!). We used the buses to get around Portland and Weymouth (great service). Thank you! We’ll be back soon! Anna & Josie (woof!)
