My husband and I had driven into Poole on a whim but had not eaten all day. Finding somewhere still serving something other than fish and chips at 3pm was not easy. But this place was a real treat. My hubby considers himself an expert...More

Our second visit for a meal with friends. Yet again a very relaxed and social feeling. Great menu with a wide choice and daily specials. Service was excellent, attentive but not pushy and a sense of humour. Would definitely visit again.
