Friendly welcoming service and an excellent dining experience with some of the finest food I've ever eaten. The food alone deserves a Michelin star.

Was great to find somewhere that had a tasting menu where not everyone on the table had to have the same. Food was delicious and service very good and friendly.

Awesome food, great service but, as I've commented on trip advisor, I don't expect to have to listen to local radio churning out second rate music and adverts for this, that and the other. This made the atmosphere a bit like a cafe - which you're clearly not. All of my party commented on it, but we hung in there as we thought front of house would turn it off and replace it with something more appropriate. This proved not to be the case, and so we left feeling slightly bemused by the dichotomy it created which is a shame as the food and service were flawless.

We headed to Roots for my wife's birthday - a Saturday evening so we could also experience the tasting menu. I was already aware of how good the reviews were for the restaurant and we certainly weren't disappointed. The food and accompanying wines were absolutely amazing and the staff so friendly and polite. We had a lovely evening - this is a must for any foodies out there!

Simply incredible food, the amount of technique and flavours on display was stunning. Wine tasting worked very well with the menu. Service was also great; each wine and course was explained very well. Definitely visit here, you will not be disappointed.

Amazing food. All the food was outstanding in terms of presentation and taste. But The Berlin supper was amazing and something completely different and definitely the surprise course. Great relaxed atmosphere and amazing and knowledgeable staff.

Our first visit to Roots and we were extremely impressed. The flavours of each course were wonderful. Each dish was executed very well and the wine pairings were interesting and well matched. We will definitely return again.

Amazing food as always. A real experience and still as friendly, informal and intimate as when Roots opened. You can tell everyone working there is passionate about what they do. Recommended for any special occasion.

My partner and I had a lovely evening at Roots last night. (Friday 3rd May) We had the Discovery Tasting menu with the add on wine selection. The food and wine were exceptional. The service was personal and we felt like friends visiting. I can’t wait to go back If you like good food and wine this is the best place I have found in Bournemouth and Poole
