Absolutely brilliant venue. Friendly staff, great food and brilliant value for money. I organised a friends graduation party here and the venue was perfect.

This is the email I sent to The Dancing Jug, I think it says it all! Hi Hope you don’t mind me emailing you, I saw your details on trip advisor. I have tonight left a review on trip advisor following our visit to the Dancing Jug yesterday evening. We were only visiting Bournemouth for one night but after a bit of research we came across the Dancing Jug and decided to book a table instead of eating in the hotel where we were staying and we are so glad we did! I just wanted to follow up my review on Trip Advisor to tell you personally how impressed we were. Both the staff and food were literally first class. I did say on my review about some customers swearing rather loudly however this is out of your staffs control and really not a big deal had my 9 year old not been with us. However, with a 14 year old brother he has heard it all anyway. I don’t usually leave reviews, but as an independent business I know you rely on them so if there is anywhere else I could leave one then please let me know. Please also pass on our thanks to the two staff who served us last night and also to the chef. Our very fussy 14 year old son said it was the best steak and ribs he’s ever had! And having eaten out last week at a well known franchise, your burgers were out of this world. Thank you again, we are visiting Bournemouth again next May for a football tournament and will make sure we bring the whole team and parents for a meal. Kind regards

We turned up and the restaurant was dark and closed off and no one was eating. Its more like a pub but you portray it as a restaurant. The place was not welcoming at all. There was no one there to welcome us to our table, We ended up leaving and going across the road to the Italian. Sorry but I wont be back :)

We didn’t eat here in the end as when we arrived the tables were dirty and staff weren’t interested in us at all. We had one drink and left! Would not recommend as a eating venue.

5 of us shared a number of the tapas dishes and they were all amazing. The service was great, very polite staff and attentive table service. Good value for money. A lovely selection of beers, wines and ciders. I will definitely be booking again soon. Highly recommend.

We first came in January and were blown away with the quality of the Sunday roast so we were really liking forward to our Mother’s Day meal...unfortunately it was nothing like the first visit. You manged to fit us in at 12noon our food was served quickly and staff were friendly but there was none of the finesse with the actual meal compared to our first visit and we were left feeling a little deflated especially as it was a treat for mother’s day and is by far the most expensive roast dinner for any pub/bar outside of fine dining!

We booked our Christmas lunch for our office and then invited around fifty people for drinks after. The lunch service was first class, Teresa looked after us all. When our guests arrived the drinks were very quickly ordered and served. We had a great evening, highly recommend Tates for food, atmosphere and service. Will definitely come again. Thanks Guys and Gals x All at Bayview Developments

Food really good, service good considering how busy it was, value for money great on the food but drinks massively overpriced considering the prices of the food weren’t far off. Only let down is the music was SO loud to try and have dinner.

Unfortunately, we were really disappointed. I was recommended to visit and the evening was not what I expected. The service was poor and the red wine was served cold, orders were wrong so we all ate at different times. A real shame.
