We have visited 3 times recently. Once at a function, which ran smoothly with excellent food for circa 40 people.
The other times were to enjoy a quick weekday lunch whilst in Bournemouth.
Rain or shine this hotel provides a very warm welcome. The lounge area is comfortable with an extensive brunch/lunch/light bite menu.
The waiting staff always make time to chat. The food is well presented and reasonably priced with items from sandwiches to fish and chips on offer.
We really cannot fault it.
