Lovely professional service and wide variety of coffee and cake! Popped in with the family on a quick stop to Christchurch - it's best option around.

I have been here twice now with my children. My son, Alfie, obviously loves going and we have had great meals and service both times. The homemade food is delicious and the staff thought of small touches that make a difference. I would definitely think it is more suited to brunch than evening meal out but would be happy to...

We had a lovely meal here. The restaurant is very attractively laid out with books at each table and a lovely vibe to it. The service was excellent and the lady who welcomed us was friendly and really engaging. You could tell all the food was made freshly on the premises. We had the burgers which were excellent. Mine had... More

The atmosphere on a wet rainy day was one of joy to be inside! We enjoyed burgers, chips, wine, and cake, staying for much longer than anticipated. The staff were great, attentive and in good humour! I loved the decor and feel of the place, taking the stuffiness out of dining. Well done!

Used to come on a weekly basis and after this weekends visit I now won't. Table booked for 10 of us and placed upstairs. Took over half hour for breakfast to arrive and arrived staggered so myself and my 15 month old daughter were last (20 minutes between the first two breakfasts and ours). She was grumpy and starving -... More

Unfortunately my vegetarian wife ordered the mushroom fries for her starter, which were similar to mushroom goujons only to bite into the third one and it was chicken. Understandably she was devastated. It is incredible that this could happen and questions the kitchen preparation and cross contamination in the kitchen. The staff took the fries (£6) off the bill but... More

We had a 4 hour wait at Bournemouth airport between flights. We found a review on trip advisor and it looked like it was worth a visit. Really impressed with our breakfast, eggs Royale and a vegetarian pan...well worth the visit and the priory church was a beautiful backdrop.
