OK. We were lucky. We've recently moved house and deserved a treat after emptying boxes all day. We weren't disappointed when we booked the last table on "Table Pouncer" for 4.30 on Saturday afternoon. We asked for a table with a view over the harbour which the manager promptly arranged. It wasn't busy and the rather worn state of the... More

A family member was coming of age and wanted a portion of meat to see the occasion in, so we got the gang together and headed towards poole Quay. We arrived and were seated quickly with drinks. I opted for the mixed grill and wasn't disappointed the meat was very well endowed, what did come as a surprise was a... More

Ordered the Chicken Fajitas they looked like they had been microwaved and were full of water content and had no taste. The sauce was bland and watery and had a horrible taste, the wraps were cold and like cardboard and the dips were out of a cheap sauce bottle, no salad or anything,,it really was very bad Refused to pay

We went earlier on in the evening, midweek so we were the first there. The waiter was nice enough however the food was so disappointing. We were recommended so really looking forward to it. My partner ordered a medium 11oz sirloin and I ordered a 8oz rare ribeye. We could actually hear the chefs talking and see them prodding the... More

If steak is your thing it is difficult to beat this restaurant. Not only are all cuts available but each on in three sizes with exact definitions for cooking. Our steaks were tender and delicious. Nothing more to say really.

It was a midweek evening visit just before Christmas, the place was not crowded and we were served quickly but not hurried. We found the staff a little variable but the meat was fantastic and cooked to perfection, not expensive but the drinks menu was a little pricey.

We came here for a night in October, the restaurant was not busy but we had to wait ages for anyone to serve us and once we had finished no one took our plates and when they did they made us feel like it was an inconvenience that we had mentioned this to them. No one smiled or seemed like... More
