We went to LB's on Weds 14th May, a group of 6 and booked adivising we had using a taste card (50% off food). We were all looking forward to it as the menu looked really nice online. The waitress (apparently on her own and her first night managing as opposed to just waiting) seated us and then disappeared for... More

Went to LB's Saturday 17th May expecting excellent food and service. The food we received bore little resemblance to the ordered choices from the menu. 2 of the starters had completely changed from the menu. 2 of the main courses were completely the wrong dish and the waitress had obviously written several things down incorrectly. Sauces for the main courses... More

We went to this bistro on a Saturday night. We found the food, the restaurant itself the staff and everything to be a really good standard. We went on a deal and to be honest would have happily paid full price for the quality of food. Good varied menu. One of us had the steak pie that huge and full... More

We ordered chicken, burger and sausage and mash. All good food at a good price, what made it for me was the puddings , they were delicious... More

Initially went to LBs Bistro on a Groupon offer. The food was of high quality, the staff and atmosphere were friendly and welcoming. Very impressed. While there, we noticed the Dorset Diner menu advertised, which offers 2 courses + a glass of wine for £10.00 (each), available lunch time and early evening. A limited menu is offered on this deal,... More

We found a deal for LB's Bistro on the site table pouncer. The deal was 50% of the a la carte menu and few times were given to chose from and I selected 1.30pm the next. This was for our anniversary. A few hour after booking and putting a deposit down I received a phone call from Mary? (I think)... More

A midweek get together with friends for a bite to eat turned into a truely lovely dining experience. The bistro is modern with a relaxed type feel to it. Service was welcoming and attentive but the food was the star. The menu looked appitising enough but the quality of the food served was fitting of a very high end restaurant.... More
