The Engine Room opens for breakfast . . . and dedicates it to the new Square at Poundbury

Added on 05 May 2010

The Engine Room Restaurant at Poundbury Gardens, which is situated on Peverell Avenue, is naming its new breakfast in honour of a soon to be built landmark square at Poundbury, Dorchester.

"St Mark's Square in Venice is famous for all the coffee houses which spill out onto the Square, so we thought we would take an early opportunity to dedicate our new breakfast to the Square which will be our closest neighbour at Poundbury. The plans show a substantial, architectural masterpiece and we are thrilled that we are so close to such an important open space which is being dedicated to The Queen Mother," explained James Foster-Pegg, director at Poundbury Gardens.

The new Square Breakfast will be served every day at The Engine Room, and each cooked breakfast, served on a square plate of course, will include produce sourced from local producers.

Head chef Paul-Jon Swingler, who has worked at The Engine Room since it opened in 2006, has built up a great reputation in the area. Paul comments: "There are many businesses in the area and often we are asked for cooked breakfasts, especially when people want to have a meeting early in the day, so we decided to offer a full breakfast menu. We have sourced ingredients as locally as possible, including eggs from Blackacre Farm in Wincanton, Somerset and bread from Shelley's Bakery in Weymouth, and of course Dorset Cereals which are also made at Poundbury. We hope that residents and businesses alike will come and join us for a Square Breakfast soon."
