Urban Guild - Hug Club

Excellent steak and chips - the best in Dorset. Great wine and beer selection too. The staff are very friendly... we'll be back... again and again.

About us

A converted 1920's fishmongers and butchers.

Selling the finest local meat and fish, cooked over charcoal and served with epic British craft beers.


We want to sell the best steak in the Country. To do that we cook over charcoal (no gas or electric) and we use a 'Josper Oven'. It's a BBQ in a box that cooks at a very high temperature, instantly sealing the juices into the meat as it hits the heat. Well seasoned and well rested meat and fish cooked over real flames. Be rude not to! ;)


In recent years Britain has fallen back in love with real beer. There has been a huge growth in micro breweries varying the roasting of the hops and brewing techniques to add a great complexity and subtlety of flavour. We want to introduce you to real beers, both ales and lagers, made by real people, not giant international corporate faceless brands. We look forward to going on a great beer journey of discovery with you.

Live music, beer tasting, some Northern Soul dancing or just a good old fashioned chin wag! ;)
