Made a reservation specifically as was visiting friends and had our dog - the first time my husband was meeting one of my closest friends (we’ve been in the US for the past 9 years). Specifically said we would be bringing our dog, was told that was fine. When we got there the bouncer immediately said no dogs after 7PM. For some reason he also kept putting his hands on me (I’m a short woman, not exactly a threat) and I was extremely uncomfortable. I asked to speak with the hostess who said the dog was fine. No said the gatekeeper/bouncer. More hands on me trying to explain how I need to understand their/his perspective. The manager then came over and said the dog was fine but actually they recommend no dogs after 7PM because of the noise and it’s not good for the dog - I said that now it seemed like he was trying to make me feel like a crappy dog owner so I’d make the decision to leave. No no he said. In the end because we live 4 hours away and I hadn’t seen my close friends in years, my husband said to just have dinner and he would take dog back to the hotel, and stay with her. If it hadn’t been a Friday night over the air show weekend, and if I hadn’t needed to eat (type 1 diabetic who was already crashing), we would have gone somewhere else. A complete let down with no apologies from the manager, no apologies from the bouncer, nothing. The service was slow, the food was ok but nothing special, the only saving grace was spending some time with my girls. I ordered food for my husband to take back to him, the moose burger, and even that was over-cooked. If the dog friendly restaurant is no longer dog friendly after 7PM, this needs to be very clearly stated to someone making reservations. The bouncer needs to learn some boundaries and not feel the need to use his size or hands to intimidate someone. In a situation like this, there should be one apology from someone. Will not be going there or to any other location again.

Booking process was over-complicated but the food was great, we had a table of 11 people and everyone enjoyed it. Music was great too.

The restaurant was far too loud to be able to enjoy food. I literally had to shout across a table for two! The greek salad should be renamed as onion salad! An upgrade on wine glasses would be suggested when charging the prices you do per glass. Staff were very friendly.

Really like going to the moose and pleased that they accept dogs but the only thing that let it down on our visit on Sunday afternoon was that the music was so loud we could barely hear each other

Food was not as described on the menu. Ordered chicken breast, received chicken thighs. When challenged waiter actually said that food menu had changed and the chef is using up the old stuff. That's really bad. That was taken off the bill, but staff were rude and aggressive. There was also a system problem with the bill which resulted in the manager accusing us of trying to leave the restaurant without paying the bill. Of course we had. All in all a very bad experience.

Bournemouth moose Waiter was pretty much non existent aske dme twice for my name couldn’t find my reserved table bouncer then bounded in asking if we wanted the toilets?!! Quite rude I then found our reserved table myself. The lunch menu still on the table at 7.30pm I got the night menu myself off another table. Ordered food and drinks off waiter. Waiter then delivered food or drinks then we didn’t see him again at all no waiter came over for the rest of our time there. Aside form he came back an hour later to lay two breakfast menus down on our table at 9pm?? The lack of competency by the waiting staff led us to go up to the bar after 40 mins of seeing no one and the lovely bar man cleared our plates and eventually ordered us more drinks. The guy we never saw again and the lady waitress never came over to our table. How are these staff trained! The place may I add was only I’d say no more than a quarter full. Terrible non existent service saved by the Barman. Won’t return due to the above please train your staff!

Very friendly staff, on this occasion the guy serving us was all over the place, as we were only a table of 3 it shouldn't have been quite so hard but... Usually fantastic service. Food is super and love the sunday roast although the live music is too loud for eating if you go after 3pm. Love this place though! Definitely recommend

Delicious burgers as always but thought the price of my G&T seemed very high. £7.60 for a single Tanqueray Sevilla and Fever Tree tonic! Think I should have queried the price 😕
