An excellent evening, great food, well presented and good service. Unobtusive background entertainment. Lovely touch with the crackers not being mass produced ones & Eco-friendly. Our first time eating here, although we had been out several times for a drink in the summer. Will certainly return & would definitely recommend. Steve & Julie

The presentation of food excellent a little pricey thought as Christmas meal complimentary l standard coffee and a mini mince pie would have added a special touch. A lunch at a top hotel in Bournemouth with these additions only 22.75.

This was our third visit to The Cliff House. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime for a Christmas celebration meal from the set menu. The food was delicious, the atmosphere and ambience were fantastic, the service first rate (as always) and the cost was good value. See you again soon!

Excellent Sunday lunch. Friendly professional service, great food and a vibrant relaxed atmosphere. The whole experience seems to be slightly more modern than a couple of years ago and its feels like a restaurant that is successful, confident and capable, long may it continue.
