Visiting relatives in Bournemouth and they suggested this for a vegan friendly meal, it was absolutely fantastic with a good choice and lovely terrace. Off for a stroll now to walk it off !

We went here for the first time tonight, staff very friendly, drinks were reasonably priced & the roof terrace was quite lovely. Felt very comfortable. We didn't have food but the menu looked great. Next time we will eat here.

My first meal - eggs Benedict on a bun with mushrooms - arrived cold with eggs underdone. Second meal - soup of the day - was spoiled by heavy oversalting and hot spices. I... More

We come here a lot, great with kids and family or for early evening drinks. Decent food which is seeing price creep, it was reasonable when it first opened but is edging towards expensive for the kind of fair on offer. I will overlook it for the good service and tastiness of the food.

We love Ludo Lounge, great food and friendly atmosphere. The food is good value and of good quality. Great for families - they have 'games' boxes for kids to play. A lovely roof terrace in the Summer.
