“Very very enjoyable”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

Myself and family ended up here after trying to get into another restaurant without booking only to be told it was full. We wandered along the quay and saw Corkers and decided to call in. We are so very glad we did. The staff were very welcoming and friendly,we were shown to our table swiftly and drinks order was taken. Once our food arrived we all mentioned how well presented it looked. I had a steak and it was cooked to my exact taste,really enjoyed the food and will certainly be returning.

“Perfect 40th Anniversary Meal”
Reviewed May 29, 2014

The restaurant is beautifully presented and much classier than some of the bistros nearby which didn't really fit the bill for our special anniversary treat. The menu offers a wide choice. The food we chose was very special, of high quality and perfectly cooked. We had a comfortable window table, with a pleasant view over the harbour and the luxury yachts opposite. The staff were friendly, attentive and efficient. We hope to go again when we visit the area another time.

“Just fantastic”
Reviewed May 25, 2014

Amazing fillet steak with fantastic staff and great views over the Quay. Can't fault it. Very accommodating with dietary requirements and a very traditional, relaxing atmosphere. In our opinion, the best steak in Poole and will definitely be returning very soon.

“Great Experience”
Reviewed May 24, 2014

We went to Corker's on Saturday 17th May and it was our 2nd visit in recent years. It did not disappoint!!

They boast of "Fresh Fish" (As you might expect from a seafront restaurant) and they are not exaggerating. My wife had whole fresh crab (Not dressed!!) which comes with bib, nutcrackers and specialist tools to remove flesh from the claws. Her face of sheer delight was a picture! I had a beef dish with tarragon etc. off the special menu and it was tasty and tender. Along with bread, one beer, 3 glasses of wine, sweet and 2 coffees the bill came to around £ 58. Great value.

Aside from the food the service is attentive and efficient. They gave us a fantastic table in the angled window offering fantastic views across the quay. We were belatedly celebrating our 40th anniversary so we feel we couldn't have asked for anything more. The pompous foursome behind us had frivolous wine issues from what we could hear but the waiters dealt with them impeccably.

There are other great places to eat on the quay (e.g. Custom House) but don't miss an opportunity to visit Corker's.
