We've had glorious breakfasts here (full English, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, great toast and coffee). This time, we celebrated our wedding anniversary with dinner on Saturday evening. We sat by the window, watching the sun setting over Parkstone Bay and enjoyed starters of: stonebaked pot bread (still piping hot) with an oil and balsamic dip for my husband and... More

Just eaten the nicest meal ive ever had. Stuffed monkfish tails with peppers wrapped in proscuito on crushed new potatoes with a green pesto jus and only @ £ 10.90. This is surely the best place in Poole and Bournemouth to eat at.

Haven't eaten here for quite some time but had always enjoyed the food although it was getting less and less reasonably priced. But ate lunch here today with family and was very disappointed with the Sunday roast. The pork could have been almost any kind of meat it was so lacking in flavour. The parsnips were almost inedible - so... More

Now I like Italian food but yesterday at South Deep I had, probably the best Seafood Linguine ever. One of our favourite spots for lunch it is set in a marina close to the sea and over the years has extended its covers to both inside and outside positions. It offers a limited choice menu to cover the day and... More

I have no idea where the Tea is sourced but it's simple outstanding! Light, delicate and fresh, it's a perfect tipple for an afternoon sat in the sun. The staff are always chatty and pleasant too. I've eaten here once, where I ordered the Beef Burger and Fries, which was outstanding. Well seasoned and perfectly cooked. The prices are a... More

You have to know it's there as no signage and in a boatyard. Food excellent and plenty of atmosphere and noise. Would be awesome in the summertime with its views. Will be back.
