Table 5 adults + I child to celebrate my 70th Birthday. On previous visits we have all been very satified But on this occasion we all felt disappointed mainly with portion sizes and price i.e.(starters) £16.00 for three scallops which had been cut in half,£17 for sushi starter which the 3 fish slices was no more than mouthful. (mains) postage stamp size Hake, Monkfish, this was served on the bone (wasn't told)so when removed left a fish finger size portion , fish curry - small portions of fish than previous visits etc . I don't know what has happened to R.S in the Months from our last visit but I get the impression gross profit is overriding value for money, even the amuse-bouche is no longer given. So disappointing from previous visits. We wont be returning

A wonderful dining experience from start to finish. We were with 2 young children and they were welcomed and well looked after. The food and service was brilliant. I would love to go back.

It was a real bonus to find dogs accepted in the bar area, which was comfortable and informal.

This was our first visit and we brought our French friends along hoping that our dining experience would make us proud of our british cuisine as we also live in France. We were not dissapointed! The service was great the food really excellent, we loved the decor and the atmosphere and the meal was not ridiculously priced as can be the case when you add a famous name above the door of the establishment. We shall definitely come again and brag to our French friends that they're not the only ones who can cook a super meal.

We had a glorious night for our wedding anniversary. The food was innovative and creative, wonderful flavours, textures and colour. The maitre d' made the evening with his attention to detail and his depth of concern was lovely to experience. The only place to come close to Rick Stein's Sandbanks is in Norway you can see it here https://fiskekompani.no Rick steins is better because we live in Dorset. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

FANTASTIC! Very warm welcome on arrival, and Christian was superb with his attention to detail and advice. My wife and I were celebrating our 50th anniversary of the day we met in 1969. A fabulous, much enjoyed evening, with superb food and wine, in the most superb of settings. Thank you, We will return! Vivien and Les Smith - Reading Berkshire

Slightly pricy for the food standard, although very good prices were on the high side. Probably due to location!

Serving staff were friendly but need better training. My wife asked what vegetable accompanied the fish courses and was told that it would be various forms of potato depending on the fish. She ordered steamed Sea Bream and plain boiled rice was served. Apart from the wrong information, the rice did not fit the dish (which I also had). The fish itself was cooked perfectly. Overall, the experience was not bad but minor points detracted from it in terms of both food and service. The environment was very good.
