Very busy dining room and whilst fully booked service was good.

Bournemouith was heaving as Graduation day and big concerts saw very few tables left to book for evening meal. The hotel booked us in to their restaurant 1812 and we were we welcomed although non resident.

We have dined at 1812 on numerous occasions and until our Last visit (26/7/15) unsure whether we will dine there again! ( Previous reviews have always been excellent) There has obviously been a change in waitresses ( Not for the better) or we may just have been unlucky on this night with the normal attentive waitresses being on leave?.

Really disappointing experience. After so many great times here it's a shame that even though the food was great (again!) the whole evening was let down by some disappointing service. It was a shame that the two members of staff were more concerned about closing the restaurant down for the evening than clearing our table. Having overheard one of them... More

A very nice bar with plenty of indoor and outdoor space. Cocktails are very good and the staff are all friendly. Prices are certainly reasonable.

Haven't eaten here yet, but they serve the best cocktails in town. Always come here when we're visiting Bournemouth. They have an extensive menu, but will also make anything you want, all the staff are very friendly and well trained. There's a bonus of "Happy Hour" between 5&7 pm on weekdays too

I love 1812. Have done for years and have been coming here for years. However on Sat night we were slightly disappointed with our Vanilla margaritas we ordered. The bar tender had not made enough and each glass was roughly 1 inch below the rim. Now I know that might sound petty but for the price we paid we would... More

Very nice, food was really tasty - presented really well. Cocktails were lovely. Only thing that stopped it getting full marks was that the service was a little slow - 10-15 mins wait for cocktail table service. Will definitely go again, great for special occasions.

Given that I know 1812 do loads of 'deals' on their food I think this sways my opinion on this restaurant a bit. I just think that the 'standard' prices for the food on the menu seems a little expensive for what you get. We went on a Friday night for a pre-show dinner as a family of four and... More
