We came across this restaurant by chance as we were looking for somewhere to eat in Boscombe before the Bournemouth v Ipswich match. We are not vegetarians but thought it looked interesting so gave it a go. We found the choice of food to be excellent and freshly prepared, the guy serving at the counter (Stelios) was very helpful and... More

Although, like your other reviewers, I am a meat eater I always make a point of visiting the Salad Centre when visiting relatives who live nearby. Delighted that the standards have been maintained by the new owner and the food is always tasty and different. I only wish we had a branch in Norfolk - highly recommended

Disappointing , not the flavoursome selection of salads or hot meals, prices seems quite high in comparison to our precious visits.

As a long term vegetarian I have tried pretty much all the local veggie cafes however The Salad Centre has been on my "to do list" for some time, simply because I don't often have cause to go to Boscombe. Well a medical appointment brought me to the area and so I took the opportunity to visit. Initial impressions were... More

We visited Salad Centre on midsummer day (a Saturday) for lunch after a trip to the beach. We had some good vegan food there, esp. the hot pot was nice. There were several vegan options, including vegan ice cream for the apple pai. Our daughter (a toddler) was exhausted and slept for most of our stay there - a testament... More

Hard to beat the 2 course credit crunch lunch. If I could eat here everyday I would become a full time vegetarian! Excellent service, nice staff and owners. Desserts are a bit special to.
