What a wonderful place to enjoy the sunshine and watch the world go by. We sat for an hour or so to rest our weary legs and it was just the job.

Something going on most weekends
Sep 2021
The leaders in Bournemouth are trying really hard to make this area a place where everyone can enjoy and their seems to be something going on most weekends and Bank Holidays. The area does seem to attract some people that clearly have an addiction to either alcohol and/or drugs who are noisy and make some people uncomfortable but its an issue in every town & city its just seems more concentrated in Bournemouth around this area. Nice pop-up bar during summer which is same prices as the up market pups and bars. Go along and see whats happening while your around this part of the south.

Boiurnemouth Square is terrible now!
Sep 2021
Bournemouth Town Centre is terrible now, most of the big stores have gone there are NO public toilets and apart from the gardens has nothing to offer - there was a time visitors used to flock here for the shopping experience and Westover Road had all the top quality shops like Dior. Its like one big bus depot and catching a bus is chaos and the pavements dangerous with bikes and electric scooters weaving in between - no thanks!

Uncomfortable
Aug 2021
Well it was terrible in town centre junkies gathering looking and sizing up people to see who looked.vulnerable to take a chance on stealing from. l felt very uncomfortable was like Woolwich town centre ( I not been there for years because of junkies etc) what is needed is more of a police presence as that may deter the junkies from contracting look for victims.
Cafes were fine etc n st presence of these sort of people made me not want to go to town centre

Good Central location. Good selection of drinks. Well staffed and excellent snack shack. All made possible by excellent security service makes you feel safe whilst enjoying your night. Evie the dog enjoyed her biscuits from security . Thank you had a lovely time here and would recommend for a good night out.

Too many kids on skateboards
Jun 2021
Too many kids wizzing around on skateboards, not so good if you have mobility problems trying to avoid a collision. The skate boarders did avoid anyone near them though.

This is ok

There are better squares in the UK - to be perfectly honest. That said, this is a nice place. Can be a little pricey but a good place to watch the world go by. There are occasional events/activities here so Worthing dropping by.

Expensive drink to watch the world go by
Sep 2020
Not the most pleasant place to have a drink and watch the world go by and not the cheapest. But having said that nearby facilities are pretty similar

fantastic stop gap
Sep 2020
brilliant open cafe, with loads of seating all sensibly spaced, with the added pleasure of a young man singing his heart out, effortlessly, beautiful day, lovely cuppa and being taken to another place with this guys amazing voice, only wish id got the CD of him,, went back the following day but he was not there, but the tea was still good and the seats very comfy.

Ice cream was good tooooooo
