surprisingly spacious inside, easy to walk past outside

Nice bar/restaurant, give it a try looks nothing from outside but inside is spacious and modern, not sure about the upstairs outside area, but they do food drink combos for a budget night out so worth checking out..

A lovely after work tapas. Comforting atmosphere and attentive service. Liked that it was casual and had to collect our food from the chef.

Been celebrating bday there. Very nice service and good party (we didn't even expect we're gonna dance!). Food and drinks bit too expensive I'd say but still very very good :))

Nice look about the place with comfy leather armchairs alongside tables. Modern shiny bar. I ordered soup of the day, broccoli & Stilton, which was delicious, my husband ordered a classic beef burger also enjoyable until he found long blonde hair in his meal. The bar server refunded his meal but it's been enough for us to rethink a return... More

We visited yesterday, two of us for lunch. Couldn’t fault the food or the décor but the service seemed somewhat absent. On arrival we approached the bar where two staff, who made no eye contact told us to go and find seats ourselves then come back and order at the bar. In fact the blonde one spoke with her back...

It was a rainy day in Christchurch and went into Soho for a coffee and awesome large tea cake, it was just like going into some ones front room, the service was great and the staff were friendly and welcoming. The surroundings were really relaxing and you were not rushed, there is also a buzz and it is an exciting... More

We love going to Soho. It has a buzz and at the same time is relaxing. Soho has a modern interior and the staff are very welcoming. The food is prepared to order and is delicious, being made with that certain extra taste. The meal proportions are good sized and are reasonably priced. The superb cappuccinos in Soho are our...

Whilst in Christchurch we wanted some lunch, initially we had gone into Loch & Quay opposite Soho but as no one could be bothered to take our order we came out and went into Soho where it was a different story. Staff were friendly and said we should sit where we like and come to the bar to order. The... More

My wife and I had lunch at the Soho on a day visit to Christchurch. There's an Italian theme to the restaurant but I had a tasty rarebit on bruschetta and my wife jerk chicken and caramelised onions on a ciabatta. They were both freshly cooked to order and there was about a 20 minute wait although it was quite... More

Wanted coffee and cake and saw teacake and coffee offer - none available and little other choice either. Staff were so laid back they may as well have not been there, and despite being very quiet for a market day (I wonder why!) service was very slow.
