What's On - 23rd April: By The Coast Cheese Dinner at Dorset Square Hotel


  • Tuesday 23rd April, 7pm
  • £85 per person
  • Dorset Square Hotel

The evening will start with canapés and an Aperitivo before Executive Chef Joe introduces the three-course menu. After dinner, ‘master of cheese’ Eric Charriaux from our friends at Aubrey Allen will guide you through a tasting of six cheeses where some remarkable wines will also be sampled.


  • A welcome drink and canapés
  • A three-course menu paired with a selection of wine
  • An expert-led tasting of six cheeses


It is often said that seafood and cheese don’t mix but we don’t buy into this. Joe has curated an irresistible menu of dishes such as Scallop and Crab Mornay, a mustard-flavoured cheese sauce drizzled on top of the shellfish and finished with a gratinated crunchy topping. 

For the cheese tasting look forward to the likes of Baron Bigod, a creamy, mushroomy English Brie from Suffolk and Brin du Maquis, a Corsican semi soft sheep’s cheese covered in aromatic herbs.

Sample a host of coastal wines alongside the cheese. Expect a herbal rosé made from indigenous Corsican grape varieties, a perfect match for the Brin du Maquis, as well as a traditional Sercial Madeira with its lovely dried fruit and nutty aromas.
