We were padding thru town on a Monday night and stopped in. Almost all the tables were reserved on a Monday! Very good starters (tapas?) menu and seasonal menu items. The staff is very friendly. Free parking right outside.

Twelve of us booked the Goods Yard for a colleague's retirement lunch. The consensus after the meal was everything had been excellent. Great food (we all seemed to have something different), huge servings (especially the burgers!) and happy, helpful staff. Highly recommended - I'll be back!

We used Table pouncer to secure 30% off, which makes this place a more reasonable option. My husband had steak that he felt was alright but not outstanding, and I had risotto, which was stodgy. The ambience was a little lacking as others have said, plus it was cold so much so that I sat in my coat, which is... More

I've never been to Broadstone and The Goods Yard was suggested by a friend who saw it was #2 on this site as she's recently moved to the area. We went and had dinner-come-drinks. The pub was clean, tidy and well decorated. However it offered no atmosphere or mood, despite it's log burner and vintagey decor. It had all the... More

Hello Simon and thank you for the review. I am glad you were happy with your meal and do apologize for the staff not being more attentive. Since we never try to turn tables, when a customer books a table it's theirs for the night and once all the courses have been served, coffee and drinks have been offered we... More

First time visit having recently moved to Broadstone and The Goods Yard was recommended to us by our new neighbours. The portions are HUGE so we definitely didn't need starters and deserts! Staff very friendly and lovely decor in what was the old Station Hotel many years ago. We will certainly go again for a special occasion.

We have eaten here on several occasions and always been impressed with the standard of the food. We visited again in December for a pre-Christmas family lunch. We didn't opt for the Christmas menu when we booked, but there was plenty to choose from on the standard menu. The food was superb, both well presented and delicious! A high quality... More

Seasonal lunch time menu wonderful. Party of eight all meals came together food was hot, tasty and there was plenty of it. We all will be using again in the future and have no problem in recommending this venue. Good choice of beers and helpful staff.

I can honestly say the food is absolutely sublime, really tasty, all fresh and home cooked! The menu is varied and just really the best around the Poole area. The staff are ever so attentive and friendly whenever I go in. This is a great find!!
