We had a fantastic breakfast for 6 of us, the food was freshly cooked, and the ambience was very relaxed and festive

A lovely setting for a Christmas, breakfast gathering. While most of the food was tasty, it’s a shame that I have to be honest and say there were a few issues, such as being served uncooked black pudding with ice in it (twice) and serving halloumi on a plant based breakfast. We seemed to be the only customers so I’m not sure how these mistakes were made. That said, the waitress dealt with this issue kindly and did not make us pay for one breakfast.

All lovely. I was telephoned to ask if we wanted breakfast or lunch as our booking was 11 and they finished breakfast at 11.
I asked if we could have breakfast so they kept the breakfast stuff out for us. Exceptional service. Thank you

Met friends for a pre Christmas catch up and lunch. Food, service and drinks excellent. It was just a shame in such a huge room there was only one other table taken so it was lacking in atmosphere. Having said that was an absolutely horrendous day weather wise so that may have put people off venturing out.

Fab evening with plentiful gorgeous tasty food served by attentive, smiling, friendly staff. The music with Tom was a superb accompaniment to the meal! He’s very talented and all in all it made a special evening. I loved the offer on cocktails and indulged! I had to change our booking several times unfortunately due to illness and the staff understood my predicament and were more than understanding - commendable! Love it, will be going again! This is so what Poole needs right now, long awaited and worth waiting for! So great to have a place full of ‘teenage oiks’! Thank you! 😋

Excellent service and quality of food. Varied menu helped by the days specials.
The duck egg, ban on ciabatta was outstanding, the fact that I had a runny yolk to the egg so that it enhanced the rest of the dish was outstanding. Perhaps not to everyone's taste but it was as I requested, so well done chef.
The wait staff were great, being attentive, efficient and with a sense of humour.

Had a lovely lunch, meeting up with friends that had not been together for 3 years. Big space in a beautiful building, staff were lovely and friendly and weren’t rushing us out of the door.. at a time when going for lunch or dinner means a 2 hour slot, this was really appreciated.

Half term break. But there was only us and another 2 tables occupied so atmosphere rather quiet. Food was good and service good also.

Very tasty burgers and friendly service. A wrongly mixed cocktail was replaced right away with a smile. A good place for a meal!
