I agree however, seeing as though the trains from dorchester west run every 2-3 hours, i don't think that first would fork out the cash for a cafe. They won't even give it a ticket office or a self service machine! Saying that, there is a dominos practically built into the station but i spose that's useless if you just want a cuppa on the way to work.
The town centre is doing fine and with the new charles street and brewery square developments, i think it will carry on thriving. However, dorchester desperately needs some larger shops similar to currys or halfords. When it comes to well known high-street shops, i think dorchester is trailing behind most other towns. Brewery square is being filled with shops that to be honest no-one really wants, and lets face it, charles street hasn't got anything better yet. So i think that the place that needs the most TLC is places such as the pathetic excuse for a retail park by tesco. If the council extended the town beyond the borders it already has, i think they would find that dorchester would be come the town that it shoud have always been, a large thriving county town.
