Dorchester is the county town of Dorset, situated between Poole and Bridport on the A35 trunk route. The historic market town of Dorchester is on the banks of the River Frome to the south of the Dorset Downs and north of the South Dorset Ridgeway that separates the area from Weymouth, approximately 7 miles (11 km) to the south. Brewery Square is a vibrant and stylish regeneration in the heart of Dorchester which currently boasts a variety of shops, eateries and leisure facilities including; Nando's, Carluccio's, Zizzi, Hobbs, Phase Eight, a Premier Inn Hotel, Anytime Fitness and an Odeon Cinema. As well as the well known brands of shops, eateries and leisure facilities, Brewery Square is also home to various independent businesses. Founded by Charles and Sarah Eldridge in 1833, the company built the Green Dragon Brewery in Dorchester in 1837. In 1879 two of John Allen Pope's sons, Alfred and Edwin, commissioned influential architect, W.R. Crickmay to design the impressive red brick Dorchester Brewery in Weymouth Avenue. With its own water supply and access to the adjoining south coast railway line, built by Isambard Kingdom Brunel. By the end of the 19th Century the company owned 97 freehold pubs from London to Exeter. The company became the wine supplier to Queen Victoria and was one of the first to be awarded the Royal Warrant. When Eldridge Pope sold the site in 2002 the company was still managed by Christopher Pope, one of the great great-grandsons of John Pope.
