I booked with the Edge on-line (easy and no fuss) for my husband's 40th birthday. The front of house guy Jonny, called me back to confirm all the details to make sure we would have a perfect evening. We were staying in Sandbanks and I wanted somewhere special for us and our friends and children to spend the evening -... More

Great View but the quality of the steak was terrible, thick cut chips were bad and they forgot the vegetables!

We have now eaten here a number of times, sadly with mixed levels of satisfaction. This time service was pretty good. Food was ok, apart from overcooked, dry (likely reheated) yorkshire puddings. Ginger pannacotta was really, very tasty indeed, as were all desserts. However the overriding memory will be leaving at the end of the night hungry. I do not... More

Had the most amazing evening at edge. The weather was beautiful and the views are to die for. The decor inside is very nice and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is something very special indeed. Pricey but well worth it. Anyone going out for a treat put this at the top of your list :)

We last ate here three years ago and were disappointed with both the food and the service. But we were willing to give it another try. And we were well rewarded! We took along some friends who had never been to this part of the country so wanted a sea view. We all chose from the set lunch menu which... More

Used a living social voucher for a steak meal. Very welcoming staff and lovely surrounding. The food was very good quality and the lunch time menu is very good value. Would go again, hopefully when the sun was out
