The food was cold and some meals came out 40 minutes after the first lot of food and different food was brought out than what was ordered. Awful service
Food was lovely , service was good
The service was above and beyond. And the food was terrific, lots of choice, and being half price on Monday meant we could eat out as a family without busting the budget. Have already recommended to all my friends. Excellent.
Fantastic venue and food. Really decent Roast and superb service. Will be coming back for sure.
Great value for money and friendly staff.
Website implied a full menu was available on the Sunday, making no mention that there was only Sunday Roast on the menu.
We had to wait quite a while for our food but when it arrived it was very tasty. Monday night 50% off food bill was great!
good venue very good service, we sang on yhe karaoke we enjoyed our selves ,we will be back soon thank you, the staff were very good and helpfull also food was exellent.
My first vist with friends for birthday celebration ,food and drink. We could not fault the service , it was amazing . The manager Jordan and the amzing bar staff couldnt do enough for us , we were very impressed . Will definitely be returning
Had a great time on Friday there, great food, great service, would recommend 🤗
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 :)
Lovely meal, friendly staff would definitely recommend. Had a brilliant time for my daughters birthday 😊
Very sweet waiter. Food presented beautifully and plenty of it. Great steak.
All of the 5 meals were absolutely amazing compliments to the chef
Thank You Peter and Jordan and all staff, our party of 20 had a great evening with you on Saturday. The food, service and value was excellent!
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.
Great food great service
Absolutely great food best roast in town
Great service and lovely service
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!
Great service, very friendly staff with a smile. Lovely atmosphere. Great quality food. Amazing roast dinner.
