Avoid this place, we stopped for a light lunch but the supposedly hot drinks served were absolutely dreadful, the service was even worse. The waitress was more interested in chatting to others who came in after us rather than getting our food and drinks, they...More

Stopped for a light lunch and had broccoli and cheese soup which was delicious. A quirky cafe bar that suited our needs travelling through and the three female staff on duty today 10/9/17 were ever so polite and helpful to a couple of Aussies. Can...More

Wow. What a joke. Owner speaks to his team like rubbish and will regularly shove you out of the way and shout at people on the dancefloor and at the bar. Cocaine makes you volatile, won't be going here again that's for sure. Will cherish...More

Great food with friendly staff. The food was good value for its quality. Children enjoyed their options as well. Only downsides were they struggled a bit to keep up when it got busier and there was only one high chair.

Simple good food for mealtimes; recommended. Not so good for just dropping in for a coffee. They now provide a little biscuit with drinks, but the cake/pastry selection is poor. I have found the staff very pleasant, for Brits! Only one loo, so don't leave...More

Went Saturday night, normally go out in Bournemouth. Not a patch on the Bournemouth gay friendly clubs, £4 a pint was pretty steep. Drag act just about average. But nice warm place, older crowd, no real complaint!
