“Dog friendly and good quality restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

So many places do not accept dogs and you end up eating in bars, if lucky; this is a quality restaurant that allows dogs in, serves lovely food and wine and gives friendly helpful service. We stayed in Swanage for 2 nights and ate both nights in the wine bar as it was such good food; having eaten there the first night we felt that anywhere else would be an anticlimax.

“Fantastic food , great atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

The wine bar has a great informal atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff.Good variety of food on the menu and the lamb I had was very tasty. Also imaginative and delicious desserts. Good selection of wines and if you don't want a whole bottle, you can get a carafe which was great for us.

“A lovely evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

Wonderful food and good quality wine in a restaurant with atmosphere. The waitress was friendly and attentive but not imposing and answered our questions knowledgeably. They also provided for a gluten free diet more than adequately.
