Yesterday we told you that Hall and Woodhouse are working with the Duchy of Cornwall to open the new inn next year in Queen Mother Square.

Up to 70 new jobs could be coming to Dorchester with the creation of a new pub in Poundbury.

Yesterday we told you that Hall and Woodhouse are working with the Duchy of Cornwall to open the new inn next year in Queen Mother Square.

As well as all the traditional pub offerings the five storey building will also have a restaurant and 20 bedrooms.

Hall and Woodhouse's Managing Director, Anthony Woodhouse says Prince Charles has requested the pub is named "The Duchess of Cornwall" after his wife.

"I am not aware of any other pub that the future King of England has asked can be named in honour of his wife. So it's a great privilege for us and we are very excited about it.  To tell you the truth if we hadn't have been asked about it we would have been requesting permission."
