It was a quiet night for a thursday but probably down to the time of year. There seemed to be quite a few bar staff working for... read more

The food in the restaurant was fantastic, reasonably priced and waiting staff very efficient. You will certainly need to book on a weekend evening post 8pm. After dinner we stayed and had a few drinks at the bar and enjoyed live music which I believe is on most nights. The drinks were also reasonably priced (at £12 ish pounds for... More

Some of the cocktails are just ice. Be careful what you order. Could be very short time of drinking :) Expensive unless happy hour.

Great atmosphere in this busy Bournemouth bar - always great for cocktails and a social with friends. Live music always a bonus - keep up the good work!

This is a review of the bar and staff not the restaurant or food. So.. We visited this bar during the evening whilst down in Bournemouth for a long w.end. We ordered our drinks and chatted whilst we had a few sips, then an over zealous bar maid promptly removes our drinks and throws them away.. Shocking I no?!! I... More

Having decided to do some shopping in Bournemouth we decided upon staying for Sunday Lunch. Remembering the 1812 from many years ago we decided to give this a go. We couldn't have been more delighted with our choice. The 3 course Sunday lunch was an absolute bargain at £19.95. The one surprise was at 12.30pm there was no one else... More
