It was okay but quite expensive.

Arrived on a Sunday evening just after 6pm. No burgers available - whatsoever! Ridiculous. Also no Southern Fried Chicken. My Winter Waldorf Salad had no sign of Stilton although it was clearly stated on the menu. Staff were great and the wine was delicious but, based on the food experience, wont be coming again and I come to Bournemouth a lot!

Waiting 30mins for drinks. Food came out cold with one order wrong. To which a member of staff came to our table and argued, raising his voice. Will not be visiting again.

Absolutely great evening - from the moment we arrived to find birthday balloons at a lovely sea-view table. Very warm and friendly welcome. Staff pitched attentiveness and space perfectly. Great choice of drinks. Food for a carnivore or pescetarian great. No so wonderful for a veggie... Also music about soulless but sure it's aimed at people half our age.... Really great place, would go again next time we're in Bournemouth.

A day saved by 1 of your waiters, the middle aged chap. Very good and seemed to be doing everything. Young dark haired girl....very poor. Food poor, wait ages then served wrong items. A shame.

We had an absolutely brilliant night I cannot thank you enough. Everyone was very attentive and flexible with timings between food and the cocktail making. The food was good and our cocktail teaching lady was absolutely brilliant! She had a lot of patience to deal with us and was really good fun. Thank you to everyone for making our evening so special!

Starters and mains were amazing, puddings were a let down, it was meant to be chocolate cheesecake but we couldn’t taste any chocolate at all was More like vanilla, the Creme brûlée was burnt to a crisp has no other flavour other than burnt, and the Christmas pudding was hard and the custard had no flavour. Other than that the staff were great, and we had a lovely time as a group of friends enjoying a Christmas meal together :)

Unexpectedly a great roast dinner. Great views, friendly staff. Just the live music was a little loud at times for lunch time. Also tinted windows would be awesome :D

Unfortunately the Thai green curry was unbearably hot even for a Thai green curry!
