I have been a regular of the Salad Center for over 20 years. The food was delicious - vegetarian options of meals such as Lasagne and other dishes, all beautifully cooked and very filling as well as being good value. I always thought the name (Salad Centre) was misleading because there was always so much more on offer than just... More

For many years whenever in Boscombe I have treated myself to lunch here . I went in today expecting to find the beautiful bakes, temping salads and home made cakes but there was no food on view. So I chose from a menu and sadly I was disappointed. It was nowhere near the standard it used to be. As an... More

The menu online is different to when you visit so we couldnt have what we were looking forward to. There isn't a sign to say when breakfast finishes on the doors or on the menu which was the second let down. Some staff need some hospitality training but the girls were lovely and food tasted good.

We have visited this vegetarian restaurant for several years when on holiday in the area. It is now under new management but still serves excellent food in very pleasant surroundings. The new owner is trying very hard to provide a varied menu and it is includes not only salads but also a good selection of tasty hot food. the premises... More

The best place for lunch in Boscombe. And I'm not vegetarian. Tasty meals (not just salads - though the salads are pretty good), great cakes, healthy juices, friendly staff. There's always something inventive to try, often as a free sample. The decor is bright and clean - no hipster nonsense. I regularly drop in for lunch after a Saturday morning... More

We are regulars at The Salad Centre and have kept going back because of the quality of the food. The service is friendly, the atmosphere is relaxed and the food is usually very tasty and great value to boot. However, our last visit was slightly dissappointing hence the review... The service was still with a smile and we were made... More
