About Dancing Moose Wimborne
Dancing Moose Bar & Cook House is an upcycled, retro, bar, dining and social space with an awesome vibe. Open early and closing late, our eclectic menu has you covered from breakfast through to dinner and killer cocktails to kick start your night. We serve great food, great liquor and share the great times with great people.
Once again a delicious meal at the dancing moose staff very friendly and helpful I would recommend anybody to go there we thoroughly enjoyed our self.
Fabulous roast! Awesome service and atmosphere, we loved it and will definitely be back
Was a lovely evening as always Adam and Sam and the rest of the team where spot on
Great to see the Dancing Moose in Wimborne looking good after it’s New Year refresh. The food was tasty, service was great, and so nice to see some familiar face along with some new!
Staff here are amazing first class atmosphere thank you
Lovely quick meal with friends with excellent service.
Great food. We couldn’t finish it and took it home. Great service.
When we went there was obviously a problem in the kitchen because everyone was complaining how long the food was taken to be served. We weren’t informed there was a problem but we had to wait a long time for food to come with no explanation or apology and had to wait for one plate that came after the others. The portions were smaller than usual and Luke warm which isn’t great when your eating eggs! The staff were not very helpful and having been a regular throughout the year, was very disappointed. There was a lack of friendliness and smiles, bearing in mind it was Christmas Eve and it wasn’t full.
Very disappointing had to wait over an hour for our food food was poor compared to the last two years got menu wrong never had on of our desserts we have had two great christmas party's with you but unfortunately this did meet the usual standard.
Lovely, friendly place.
We had a great night! Ronan aka Adam was brilliant! Thank you! Great atmosphere, great night!
Enjoyed holding our Xmas party here. Food was excellent as was the service and drinks selection. Will be holding next year’s party here.
Adam as attentive as always
Service was slow, disjointed and very inexperienced waitresses. When a kilo of wings unavailable, we were offered a substitute of another kilo of any food....?! Menu was less eclectic but was more sparse and uninspiring. Food took a long time to arrive. Well over priced for what it was and what we got. £15 for a roast - I wish I’d gone to a carvery and at least had all you can eat. Food was well below average. Served like warm/cold on cold plates. Inconsistent too as other roast dinners seemed to have more veg. Potatoes were reheated or had been under a heat lamp for hours, gravy was lumpy and fresh from the bisto box. We did not complain or send food back as neighbouring tables did this only to have the same cold meal returned to them. Toilets not clean and the “daily” cleaning rota hadn’t been filled in for three days. Would not be coming back or recommending. Wish we’d stuck to our normal food outlet and not tried something new (ie trying the dancing moose was a mistake)
We never stayed for our food. I had booked this table a long time ago - & was very disappointed to see our table was in the bar area , right next to where the dj would be in an hour or so’s time, and 5 people put on a tiny table for 4 with one sitting in the main aisle for access to the outside area. We asked if there was anything in the restaurant and they were fully booked . Considering how long ago we booked I feel we should have been in the restaurant anyway. We wanted a nice relaxing meal where we could talk. This was not the table for this! Very very disappointed!!
Great service as always & superb food again! The only thing I could fault was that it was evident that some of the staff were getting annoyed with another employee, not sure if she was new or something as she was slow to work the tills. However she was well mannered, chatty & a pleasure to be served by. Shame the other members of staff could not keep their frustration private! Maybe instead they should be encouraging her & helping her while she learns.
Dinner was more like a Xmas dinner than a Sunday roast, was absolutely delishous.
Arrived around 7.30 for a table booked at 7.45. Went to bar to get a drink however 2 bar staff doing cocktails so looked like a long wait. Should have a dedicated member of staff for cocktails and one for standard drinks or perhaps even extra staff at this time of year!! Decided to go to table after 15 minutes of waiting to get table service for drinks but had to hunt for a member of the restaurant staff to find out where we were sitting. Table service was admittedly quite prompt only because I collared the waiter for drinks initially. The food was average to the most part however the small plate salt & pepper squid was very disappointing for £6.75, around 5 or 6 miniscule scraps hidden amongst a salad. The macaroni cheese was very stodgy, one big claggy pie. Being vegetarian was very limiting also, the same old veggie burger and halloumi wrap was very uninspiring. Anyway it was my sons choice for a celebration of passing a course in the Army. Also found the music very loud limiting conversation as you had to shout across the table to be heard, perhaps lower the music during dinner service then crank it up after 10pm.
The on line booking didn't really work and they were full. However the manager took time to sort out a table for us and we had a fabulous evening .and they looked after us very well, thanks to you all
Thank you! Wonderful atmosphere, amazing service and yummy food.
Our first meal with you, had roast beef, Sunday lunch. Very disappointed with overall meal although portions were very generous. The beef was very rare and tough, roast potatoes and parsnips under cooked, Yorkshire puds large buy dry and very bland, but cauliflower excellent.
Great food great place
Good food lovely atmosphere will visit again
