Wine bar to open in former Dorchester post office

A NEW wine bar is set to open its doors in one of Dorchester’s most iconic buildings.

Members of West Dorset District Council’s licensing sub committee granted a licence to Jim Ross for his Durnovaria wine bar in South Street.

The property had previously been occupied by Starbuck’s and before that housed the county town’s post office.

Mr Ross plans to open his doors later this month and is aiming to create a high quality venue for people to enjoy drinks, hot beverages and local produce as well as promoting cultural events.

He told the licensing committee: “The concept is a convivial wine bar and cafe serving beverages alongside cakes and cold food.”
