Booked this based on other reviews. The restaurant didn't look anything special from outside however was nice inside. I think a family business with pride in their food. All our group enjoyed their meals including the home made gateaux. Definitely recommended.

A small restaurant just opposite the Poole Museum; as total strangers we were greeted warmly, which is always a great start. We tried four different starters from cockles, calamari and tiger prawns all were well presented and cooked to perfection. The main courses equally impressive...More
