Dropped in by chance on our only day in Poole and were rewarded by an excellent lunch of top class soup, toasted sourdough and an accompanying made to order vegetarian wrap. Two good coffees to wash down a small lunch.
The dinner menu looked quite tempting but unfortunately they
were booked a week in advance for the Saturday night...would have loved to sample dome of their offerings.
The pub looks like it has had a recent refurbishment and whoever the architects and builders are, they have done a first rate job in creating a fresh and inviting decore

Second visit to MS, first and foremost the food is fantastic, really really good. Both times. That’s the very good news. More good news is the wine list is good and reasonable value too. The waiting staff are lovely and service is excellent only very very occasionally did we think a bit quicker please but given the restaurant was sold out and tables were being occupied again not a problem.
The almost there bit is because of the acoustics omg the level of noise in the restaurant is deafening when the place is full. People have to talk louder then louder and everything gets louder until folks are yelling at their table guests to be heard. Something easy to fix and I’m sure will be.
I recommend this restaurant and a pair of Bose noise cancelling headphones. Or go on the same day as the Dorset Sponsored silence competitor annual dinner, if you can find someone to tell you the date. But regardless do go!

Nice food, nice people but it was too much like being in a nightclub. I spent all night shouting and saying "pardon". PLEASE get some carpets and curtains.

First experience of dinner here last night and it certainly won't be our last. Great staff, friendly and chatty, and food was brilliant. Tempura prawns, Cajun chicken, Sea Bass, soufflé all excellent. A good start for this recently refurbished venue.

Making the right choice is important , along with the personnel understanding the menu from tasting the dishes , Unfortunately we made the wrong choice on a recommendation but this would not jeopardize a return visit,
In this crowded market place for restaurants I would suggest a signature dish to stand out & be noticed.
