We've been holidaying in Sandbanks for many years and have visited this restaurant quite a few times. The food is superb and the staff are very accommodating. Make sure you book as its very popular.

Just visited here for dinner with my mum this evening for a little celebration! The food was amazing. Cooked perfectly, lovely and hot, a brilliant selection of sides ( the dauphinois were gorgeous) and veg and the staff were very friendly! I would highly recommend this restaurant and the duck. We will be going back here again.
