We thoroughly enjoyed our evening here! We made every effort to get the best value out of their cocktail happy hour! Very good selection of cocktails beautifully and expertly made and no holding back on the measures either. Tiger beer on draft was also very good. This is a large bar but it certainly gets full but not rowdy. The... More

We've been to 1812 so many times but this time we was limited on time as we had to be over the road for a show. I always enjoy a cocktail her, but it's never a quick experience, it always take about 20 min to get serviced then for it to be made, you don't have much time to enjoy... More

I think this place can be a little hit and miss and the service can be quite slow sometimes but it really is a great choice if your looking for somewhere nice to go for dinner and cocktails. I've had some of the best meals in Bournemouth here and we will keep coming back. Thanks

Visited 1812 for an evening meal. Have been there before several years before so returned to see if still OK. We were a group of 3 adults. The atmosphere in the restaurant was quite noisy so if you want a quiet meal maybe this is not for you. The service we found to be excellent without being rushed. I had... More

We had a fabulous meal, service, food and cocktails at 1812, the food was first class and great value, cocktails are wonderful, so are the desserts and the service is excellent. Also if you want to carry on and party, there is a very lively bar that has live music, really friendly. I will definately return.

Staff are highly knowledgeable in the art of cocktail making which is impressive outside London. The cocktail choices are both modern and classic pending your poison, all cocktails are made with fresh fruit and juice and the selection is of alcohol is emense. Prices are very fair and the venue is classic, not too glitzy and had a great atmosphere... More

My girlfriends and I go to this restaurant at least 5 times a year to celebrate birthdays. We were first attracted by the half price cocktails served until 7.p.m but then found the 3 courses for £12 (now for £15) to be excellent value. The service is friendly and faultless. Nothing is too much trouble. From time to time we... More
