Sadly, we never even got to the point of having our meal here.... Our group of friends enjoy dining out very regularly in Bournemouth, Poole and elsewhere; we thought trying the Libertine for a Christmas get together and spoke to a very helpful guy, James who took our booking, emailed out menus and took the time to identify dietary needs....

went in to the Libertine with a friend for dinner in mid December. The previous visit was a bit disappointing but no problems this time, we both ordered fillet steak for mains and they were tender and cooked to perfection. Accompanying the steaks we has gratin potatoes, mushrooms and onions. These were tasty, the battered onions were very crispy and... More

Dined here last night, big table of 9. The service was excellent. Very friendly. The wine menu was extensive, lots of choice and reasonably priced. The food was excellent, everyone was very pleased. Highly recommend the flat iron steak. In still dreaming about it, never had that cut before, haven't heard of it either. It was to die. Highly recommend... More

Thanks so much for your lovely review,we're so glad you enjoyed your meal with us. Steaks are very much our speciality, the charcoal burning Josper oven we have in our kitchen does a great job of sealing in flavour, especially on a nice cut of steak! We look forward to seeing you again soon. More

...but fails. Waitors/waitresses very helpful and friendly but waiting time and food can be a bit hit and miss here. When they are busy it goes a bit awry in the kitchen. We have visited on several occasions with family and the food has been ok but nothing to get very excited about. The decor is nice, the bar is... More

I came in on Sunday afternoon with my husband to indulge in the 2 courses for £15 and 3 for £18 which I have to say is very reasonably priced for the quality of food and service you are getting. We both started with the soup, and my husband had the roast beef which was cooked just right. I had... More

My review is not the pub in general, or the staff, but a specific area. 1) The bar toilets - generally pretty disgusting. On a recent visit, the mens toilet had no toilet seat. It was quite simply broken off, but rather than pop to B&Q and replace it, it will sit un-repaired for days and days and days. I... More

My husband and I took our 20 year old son and his 18 year old girl friend for a meal to celebrate them moving into their first flat. Oh dear!

Have eaten here on a number of occasions (mainly at lunch with work colleagues) and have always been impressed with the friendly service and food. In particular, the pizzas are of a really good quality (my favourite being the Hawaiian!) The burgers are pretty good too! The eating area is comfortable with a private area for large groups. There is... More

The Libertine have got it spot on as far as I'm concerned. The menu is regularly updated, they are reasonably priced, they have different areas to suit different occasions, the bar and restaurant team are lovely. The food is always quick enough to do in a lunch hour, tasty, well cooked and the portions are extremely generous. I almost always... More
