We visited The Square on a bright winter day, and it's nice to be able to find such a busy, vibrant place with such things as Greek and German street food. We enjoyed the happy, buzzing atmosphere.

Such a nice place with such a good service. The food wasn't too good. Had a Pannin and I wasnt keen on eating that. Not too bad overall

Second visit in two years but seemed a little bit low key as no bandstand and the rain did not help. May be worth visiting in December, nearer Xmas. Stalls / cabins good with plenty of variety.

Busy busy place, the central hub of Bournemouth. Great meeting place, plenty going on, loads of people passing through so great for a people watch. Various entertainment and stalls spring up during a week so well worth a visit
