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 😕

Despite booking on line and having a reminder with a request to confirm the booking, when I arrived the reservation had not been actioned and the staff member appeared to be unaware of it. Luckily it was quiet and I was directed to 3 adjacent tables which I moved together.

Drinks seemed pretty pricey considering it was happy hour, but discount wings made up for it

Here is the comment I left on trip advisor ... We visited last night to celebrate my birthday with family and friends upon a recommendation. Pre-booked a table & food for 12 guests for 8pm 29/3/19. Booking process and preselecting food etc was simple, quick and friendly. Upon arrival we had a drink at the bar whilst our table was being cleaned and prepared. I knew live music would be on as that was another reason why I chose you! - for the atmosphere. To try and keep it brief. ( if I can) The music was so loud our ears were bleeding! We all couldn’t hear ourselves think- All Crammed in the corner sat underneath the speaker really didn’t help. The chap who was playing even acknowledged and asked- if was it too loud?? We said yes but continued anyway. Then a group of people - I say group more like a bus load! Sat next to us. Practically sat on our laps. We couldn’t move in or out- literally barracaided in! Banging the table and shouting over the music. Screaming at one another. At this point we were already eating our mains then we cancelled the pudding orders and promptly left! I expressed my dissatisfaction to the lovely waitress who had been looking after us. She couldn’t apologise enough. So the meal was cut short, we didn’t even finish it. All plates half finished and rushed. Sat winching at the volume of the music and the crowd of idiots next to us! So, I have to be honest- ruined the night- couldn’t wait to leave! And felt absolutely gutted!!! A waste of money. Food service was amazing, staff were friendly, competent and ever so helpful. The lady who was at your front desk and looked after us was amazing! She’s a keeper. Upton reflection we should have been offered a discount or refund as we left. Now having to organise another meal for this evening, somewhere else to compensate for the evening. And just for the record. No, I am not an old moany lady with nothing better to do! Our group was a mix of young and old who love great music and a good time! - it was just such a shame. Would have given terrible as a rating if it wasn’t for your amazing staff and the avocado starter. 🤔 Lucy Jones

Great food, good portions!! Good service and atmosphere. Managed to get in for happy hour which is a bonus, would be helpful if it was listed what is and isn’t included though.
