My Wife and I enjoyed a good three course meal each selected from an extensive menu which was attractively priced. Good surroundings and pleasant staff.

This was an OK meal, the waitress was spot on, very cheerful and bubbly. Baked Camembert starter was very good, just like we would do at home. Mains were OK, bistro rump steak was OK. Would go here again if in the area.

I have visited here many times with the Quiz team and members of Poole Harbour Canoe Club. Both meeting points are close by. We have never had a bad meal here. Lovely near the sea shore.

The pub has removed most of the comfortable seating in favour of high wooden tables, which is a shame, as I find it important to relax when I go to the pub. The decor is good and in fitting with the location and they have...More

Certain members of staff were very unhelpful. We had a family gathering that was spoilt by this certain member of staff. We will not be going back. Until the manager grows a back bone.More
