    We had a really fabulous lunchtime meal with a couple of cocktails each. The food was really delicious and the drinks were amazing. Overall we all thought that it was great value, a great atmosphere and the staff were really lovely. I’d recommend this venue to other large groups looking for a place to eat/drink.

    Food was lovely and couldn’t fault the staff /service. The only downside was that, for a Bank Holiday Saturday night, the restaurant wasn’t very busy and consequently the atmosphere was a little subdued.

    Early eve meal on a Sat night. Almost empty. Cocktails and starters great - main course supreme chicken was dry and carrots rock hard. Had cheek to add 10% service charge to bill by default but at least waiter pointed it out to us. I prefer to decide myself on whether service was exceptional and deserves a tip or not. To be fair most other restaurants were almost empty in Poole at that time. Would we go again, probably not.

    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.

    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.
