Amazing steak ,great service and lovely place
Bingley Bistro was a lovely place to eat, the staff were very friendly and as it was my husbands birthday we couldn’t have picked a better place to celebrate as the food was delicious, we will definitely be back next time we’re in Poole 😊
Lovely atmosphere, staff friendly, excellent food and choice. Only gripe - which did impact a bit as you leave with this impression. The wine we chose was not available and we were offered a substitute - another white Rioja. However when it came to the bill we were charge 33 for the wine, whereas the one we had chosen was 24. We DID point this out and the staff rectified it but it does impact on the evening. Staff should really have made us aware of the very different price when we were offered the substitute.
Also - but we point it out because all other aspects of this restaurant are of a very high standard. The staff, although lovely and efficient could not answer the question on ordrering ' is this wine dry?'. Surely giving staff access to a list describing the wines - or mention it on the wine menu, would be quite a simple thing to do.
These items have stopped us putting a 5* review on trip adviser....
We have done overnight breaks to 6 UK cities this summer - because overseas travel wasn't possible In each we have chosen a good restaurant to dine in. We have to say Bingley's was the best. Well done.
Delicious food in a relaxed setting, and the service was excellent
On paper the menu looked fantastic, but we were disappointed with the finished product. Everything savory was a little too sweet - for example the French Onion Soup and the pea puree that accompanied the slightly overdone scallops. The mains were similar. I had the lemon chicken which was very strongly flavoured, but to an extent balanced by some very sweet pommes dauphinoise. The jus that accompanied by partner's very tasty pork was again over sweet. The deserts were nice.
Couldn't fault the friendliness of the staff. The ambience was cosy and the toilets were spotless. The cost was on the high side for the quality of the food.
I will try it again in a few months and taste different dishes before taking a decision as to whether I would recommend the restaurant to friends.
Hi Philip, we appreciate your feedback and will review our methods. We hope that you enjoy your next visit to Bingley's. Sincerely, The Bingley's Team
The food was average at best. The owner was polite but with little conversation or personality.
Hi Keith, my apologies, I was not present on that evening and am disappointed to learn that we made a poor impression. We would sincerely appreciate the opportunity to amend that. Terry, The Bingley's Team
Food good but no better than a good chain restaurant such as Cotes. Service lacking charm.
Hi Jojo, we are disappointed to learn that we did not achieve the wow factor and take your feedback on board. We would appreciate the opportunity to make a better impression. The Bingley's Team
Very nice ambience. Friendly staff and good food.
Really good food at sensible prices. Very friendly staff who were happy to cater for allergies.
You need to book for this restaurant but it is well worth it. The menu has been well thought through and those with specific diets and allergies are well catered for.
What a fantastic little bistro, food was sensational.
One of the best meals I've had in a long time with excellent service. Couldn't fault at all.
No heating outside. Very cold and the food is avarage
Couldn't fault this restaurant at all, beautiful food, perfect portions from starter to desert.
The price you pay is more than worth it.
The staff are so kind and helpful. Definitely recommend to anyone in the area to go there.

We had a delicious meal at Bingleys on 11th December. Service was very attentive and professional.
It was a shame it was so quiet, this was the only downside
Hi Alison Thank you for your kind words and personal message. With such lovely guests, we know Bingley's will bounce back when we can reopen. The Bingley's Team

Thank you Bernie, much appreciated
Food was great particularly the Seabass and Pork main Signature dishes. Quiet but that suited us. Great service.
Andrew, thank you, we truly appreciate your feedback. The Bingley's Team
Good food and great service in a very nice and historic building.
The vegetarian/vegan options were different and excellent.
It was quiet due to the booking and distancing rules.
We will be going again.
Hi James, thank you for your review. Your kind words and recommendations are sincerely appreciated. The Bingley's Team
a lovely quaint place to eat. Service was excellent .Food is very good, the only thing I didn't like were the potatoes as they were more like crips.
Hi Nella, thank you for your kind review and feedback. We would always be pleased to offer a side dish of potatoes prepared differently - please do ask, we will be happy to oblige. The Bingley's Team
Tasty food with some good vegetarian options. Good covid measures in place, with friendly welcoming service.

Hi Glenda, The Bingley's Team appreciate your kind review and pleased you enjoyed your evening with us.
We had a lovely meal at Bingley’s. Felt very self as we were seated far away from other diners (this has not been the case at other restaurants I’ve been to recently). Our food was amazing! I had the cauliflower cous cous and it was one of the tastiest vegetarian main courses I’ve ever eaten. We were well looked after and if we ever come back to Poole we will return!
Hi Claire, we look forward to your return visit, thank you. The Bingley's Team
Quite pricey but food was outstanding and therfore reflected on the price. Dont mind paying more money than average for good food will definitely go back
Hi Ben, thank you for your kind feedback. It is good to know you felt you received value for money. We look forward to welcoming you back. The Bingley's Team

Hi John, The Bingley's Team thank you for your kind feedback.
The food was excellent
We have been to Bingleys several times and have never been disappointed. The service was first class. You do have to wait for your food but only because the food is freshly prepared. The meals we had were delicious. My partner had a vegetarian option and was delighted with the quality of her meal. Definitely recommend anytime.
Hi Victor, we appreciate your understanding and kind words. The Bingley's Team
