Walked past a few days ago and it looks like its still going to be a while before it reopens-still totally boarded up. The service has been slow whenever I've been- even for just a cocktail in the bar. The wait-staff seemed the biggest problem- very self-regarding with a lot more interest in hiding in the kitchen chatting to each... More

Unfortunately the cafe no longer exists as such. It coldest due to a fire and the company that owned it subsequently went into liquidation . It is supposed to have found a buyer now . We hope that it will reopen by the time we return.

I need to admit we been here in summer 2014 maybe something changed since then. Place looks nice that's why we came here and regretted it after. It looks like staff doing you a favor serving a food and drinks. Few orders came wrongly and we been asking for a few drinks from their menu and they couldn't bring them... More

After a pleasant walk along Shore Road Sandbanks basking in the wonderful sunshine last week we called for a coffee at the Caff, we ordered our coffee which was served by a most charming waitress having only to wait for a few minutes to arrive who gave us the latest copy of the local Society monthly magazine to read during...

Cafe Shore was a good restaurant in a lovely location with great views over the harbour from the restaurant. It was successful for a number of years but is now closed. However, the grapevine has it on good authority that it will re-open later in the year as a RICK STEIN RESTAURANT !!!! Can't wait
