About The Larder House
Founder James Fowler (2014 World Class UK Bartender of the year) and his highly skilled & dedicated team are breathing a refreshing and much needed, new life into East Dorset’s food and drink scene. Infused with traditions of bygone eras and through continuous researching into the greatest foods from around the U.K & Europe, The Larder House is rapidly winning the hearts of the countries foodie elite and local residents.
The wood fired oven is at the core of the restaurant & bar, but what’s most inspiring is the seamless synergy between the kitchen and front of house. The enthusiasm is abundant and the research that goes into their offering is intriguing. This ensures that everything you order has a story to tell, be it their range of unordinary back bar spirits or the range of charcuterie & cheeses that they showcase. The Larder House is playful, accessible and carries a buzz in the air that is difficult to describe. What’s important though, is that it gives you the feeling you have stumbled upon something very special, almost secret.
It’s a project for us where we really do serve pure passion. We pay homage to the origins of true food whether local or from around Europe. Beyond what we offer now is a lot of learning where we are pushing ourselves to be ambassadors to the foods and drink that we all personally love to enjoy. We don’t just serve it, we really do live it!!
The Larder House opened its doors back in January 2011 and will continually evolve by discovering new products and creating its unique portfolio of offerings. As a customer you will really see the restaurant & team grow & specialise. Especially when you attend one of their showcase nights whereby the team give a unique food & libation pairing event covering all aspects and flavours of the chosen product. Previous showcase nights have shown expertise in Sherry wines, Offal, Port, Absinthe, Single Malt Whisky & Gin.
Excellent food. Great atmosphere. Very good customer service. A hidden gem in Bournemouth. Highly recommended
Amazing food! Staff very friendly and helpful. Had a lovely evening at the laser house and visited the library bar after dinner. Loved it and will definitely return
Lovely restaurant. Super food. Very attentive, helpful and knowledgeable staff.
Lovely food and staff. The main part of the restaurant is cool. The extension out the back isn’t quite so nice but will come into its own in the summer I’m sure
This is a lovely place (I have been 3 times) but have always been a bit disappointed with the food. It's fine but not quite what it should be somehow.
Great service, staff all very friendly and food was as good as any top class restaurant in London
This was our 2nd visit for a Sunday roast but this time had invited some family members for a birthday meal. Everyone agreed how fantastic everything was from the food to the service. The cheese board for one was amazing!! Can't rate this place highly enough. Staff are all lovely and friendly and can't do enough for you.
lovely evening had for a birthday treat
Went for a Sunday roast having been recommended. Disappointingly they had run our of roast ham and chicken. So we had to have meat we didn’t want. Service was also very slow. Food nice but service and lack of choice was disappointing
Had a lovely sunday lunch. all the staff were working incredibly hard to keep a busy lunch going. Great food & atmosphere & service. Very enjoyable.
Your staff are such an asset!
Amazing waitress, fabulous food and delicious cocktails. I was sad that the Library’s cocktail menu wasn’t bigger but the ones we had were lovely.
Very good service and food
Thank goodness for you and your friends 👫
The food was perfect. The goat cheese creme brulee is absolutely delicious. Our issue was with the service. They were hosting an event at the same time and unfortunately our order got stuck in the kitchen and the event got served before us, which resulted in quite a long wait for just a fish platter. We then had to wait another 20min just to get some bread. The management was great though after we flagged it. It looked like the kitchen took on more than they could handle. A disappointment is the fried food smell on our clothes after we left the restaurant. It wasn't pleasant. They may need to review their fans in the kitchen.
Always brilliant food, particularly the bacon belly, and knowledgeable and friendly staff. Thanks especially for the unexpected anniversary glass of bubbles.
Food was excellent and a fantastic range of drinks. Service was a little slow initially and we had to wait for drinks. However staff were friendly and knowledgable and the food service was timely
We were met with enthusiastic and knowledgable staff on a quiet Sunday evening. We were made to feel comfortable in our surroundings and experienced great food at great value. We will definitely be back!
Food excellent as always. Staff superb and a credit to the place. Rated down on atmosphere only as we were seated by the rear door and was freezing. Over all excellent 🙂
Lovely food and atmosphere
Had a lovely night
The larderhouse is beautiful. Wonderful food, ambience and the staff are so attentive but leaving you to feel relaxed to enjoy your time. A lovely time was had.
Really enjoyed the Sunday Roast, food was very good, service excellent. Will definitely come again.
Everything was perfect!
