Considering that this restaurant is rated no 1 of 270 restaurants in Bournemouth, I am curious to know what the standard is of all the others. The many reviews in Trip Advisor are superb, but sadly I cannot write anything similar. The service was excellent, the restaurant spacious and quite comfortable, decor is dated, but the food only just above average. This is not Masterchef Standard. Strange that Trip Advisor gives this restaurant such a supreme rating. Did we visit on an off day, or are all other restaurants in Bournemouth sub-standard? This experience has shaken my faith in Trip Advisor. What now?
