Harry Ramsden's - Bournemouth
Downstairs is a traditional British takeaway chippie, with a choice of fish on its blackboards, so you can pick up a tasty cod, haddock, plaice or scampi, freshly cooked in our secret recipe batter, for a stroll along Bournemouth’s promenade.
We look forward to seeing you at Harry Ramsden’s Bournemouth Pier very soon.
Very scruffy with torn chairs. Great location but no atmosphere. Expected great food but was very very ordinary. Most chippies are as good.
Delicious fish and chips. Fantastic sea views. Good friendly service. Would definitely visit again.
Lovely setting, staff were lovely but was disappointed with the size if the plate of food - not good value for money!
Our meal was delicious beautifully cooked plaice and service was excellent. Booked a table which we had overlooking the beach quick and not rushed service.
The food was very generous in portion size. service was alright. drinks quite expensive for their size. It wasn’t to my taste but for others it would be.
Club 60 was marvellous value. Would highly recommend.
Staff very welcoming and lovely friendly manner from our waitress.
Nice food, although slow on drinks and bought out the wrong dessert. Friendly staff
Service was slow and staff would start to serve you before running off to serve someone else. No real ambiance just felt cold and not very inviting.
Not very good service, when they bring your starter with your main course,
Enjoyed our visit, but good was served before the drinks arrived which was not good.
The food was cold and over cooked.
Service was good.
When I complained they did offer to heat it up, but as it was already over cooked I refused.
I went to HR earlier in the year and that was not a great experience either, so I gave them the benefit of doubt and tried again, but it was a huge mistake.
Amazing fish and chips. Great value. Excellent location right on the seafront. Only let down by tied and grubby upholstery
I took a party of 14 oldies and everyone was extremely pleased with every aspect of the lunch. Food renewed our love of fish and chips. The waitresses were very attentive to our needs. Nothing was too much trouble. I was thanked all round for bringing them to this restaurant as we all thought it top class.
Great Fish and Chips! Wish we lived down the road to here as Harry has redeemed our love of this favourite national dish.
We were in a party of 14 and everyone was extremely pleased with their meal, the service and the speed in which it all arrived.
The waitresses were lovely and so happy to oblige our every request. We had tables overlooking the sea so the atmosphere was magical.
We all hope to return again before too long.
Average overpriced fish and chips but great view seals the deal
Have been to Harry many time over the years and I can only say it gets worse every time.
Waiter took order for drinks and meal. Drinks arrived promptly but not our meal. Either understaffed or not organised. My wife’s meal was just thrown on the plate and my Caesar salad was not what you would expect unless it was child’s portion.
Sorry but this will be the last time we go there.
Harvester next time.. much better value and service..
We had a lovely meal. The service was excellent and friendly. The food was fresh and tasty. Best fish&chips around. Thank you
Great venue, fab view of the seafront, very friendly efficient staff
Very friendly Italian waiter, attentive and polite.
Nice food and good portions
All good table service. Helpful waiter . Two of us ordered regular fish & chips. The fish was very small. A bit overpriced for what you got. Visited earlier in the year and was better then.
Good quick service
Nice fish, but expensive for portion size and chips not good, seemed like they'd been cooked a while ago.
We are served all our meals at once considering there were 11 of us was very impressive
Really excellent service - our waitress Anda was very pleasant, polite, friendly and extremely helpful with my special dietary needs, despite the kitchen not quite understanding what had been requested (I asked for tomato and cucumber instead of peas with my cod and chips and was brought cod and green salad with a few tomotaos - but no chips! The kitched quickly added chips when this was pointed out and our waitress made a special unrequested trip to ensure I had sufficient tomato and cucumber) Nice quiet atmosphere (6.30pm on a rainy Friday) with lovely views over the stormy sea. Food was very good - fishcakes, cod and SriLankan curry all very much appreicated.
Food was terrible. This place is just living off the name and location.
We had a amazing service at Harry Ramsden’s we were greeted by a gentleman who appeared to be french on my first look.
I had requested a table with a sea view and I wasn't disappointed. The food was mouthwatering, we had chosen cod and chips, both the fish and chips were cooked to perfection, very tasty and crispy.
It was the hottest day of the year, therefore had avoided eating later in the afternoon, also knew that it may get busier during those hours.
If your in Bournemouth then please do visit you won’t leave disappointed.
The best fish & chips I’ve had. Catered for a large group with no problem at all, highly recommend! We’ll be back!
Overall a good experience. However my glass of wine was over £6 and was very average. It was my daughter's birthday and she was looking forward to a sundae but they had run out of ice-cream!!!! Most of the desserts have ice-cream with them so disappointingly we had to leave without a sweet end to the meal!
Seated quickly. Order taken in good time. Food delivered very slowly. Starter and mains arrived together and had to chase last persons order which arrived 10 minutes after first. Fish size varied significantly despite ordering same size even where smaller “60s” portion was larger than regular adult portion.
Wasnt as good as the first time we visited. The batter was soggy on one side and seemed over done and burnt on the other. We will be tho as I'm sure it was just a one off.
Great evening, very good service, food well cooked and served quickly.
It is a nice place to eat. Get a table near the window where you can look out at the sea, and look at people on the beech. All in all it is a nice place to have a meal.
Very disappointed food was awful, over cooked, fish not as fresh as it should be.
Have been there many times and it has always been ok. This time definitely not. The best thing was the excellent pianist.
Excellent service, food and atmosphere - my regular go to when visiting Bournemouth
The lady who served was amazing and food was lovely. Only criticism was it was too hot in there and expensive.
Great food, very tasty. Server was friendly and really good with my 6 year old boy who spilt my friends drink. He replaced it free of charge which was very kind.
Food was nice excellent service would definitely come again
I'd recommend this restaurant to everyone however, I'd strongly suggest booking a table as this was probably the only chance we had of actually getting seated. Even though the restaurant wasn't overly busy (possibly because everyone was quing to get in) there was only one person seating people and taking orders. It was a bit much really.
Unfortunately we decided to go on a busy Eatser weekend. Luckily we had booked to walked past the long queue to get in. The front of house staff were stressed. Fortunately the waiter we had was laid back and food was served in good time considering. Noise level was loud with screaming kids, nothing you can do I know. Food was ok but £125 for One course and drinks is a bit steep for a fish supper.
The fish portion size and chips were both very disappointing. The tartare sauce was like synthetic mayonnaise - I would have expected this to be freshly made inhouse. I think the restaurant is banking on the name. The staff and location were both excellent.
Overpriced for what it is. Fish was dry and chips were average. Can get far better in local chippy for much cheaper.
