Our friends were staying here so we joined them for dinner. The position is arguably the best view in Poole. The views are unsurpassed. Nice interesting shape and decor with the dining room down below, whilst you can have drinks maybe snacks up top. Staff extremely attentive and helpful, and very polite.
We had a nice meal, good value for money, but then I asked for an IRISH COFFEE., which was served up to me in a coffee cup. I did say that I had never had one like this before...in hindsight I should have sent it back , as this is not acceptable.

Because of this I have downgraded it on service and food.

Staying at the RNLI college we twice visited the restaurant which offered good value and a wide range of food. The specials offered particularly good value and the service of both evenings was efficient and courteous.

Ate here on Friday night. The restaurant was busy and the service was friendly, polite and helpful. Two menus available, a three course set menu for £17.50, a further menu which is individually priced. We opted for the set menu and were amazed at the quality, presentation and variety available for this price. Well done.

All the food was cooked just right and tasty,the staff were helpful and polite.In the evening the view to the west is just great for knowing when to leave your table for a few minutes to get an excellent photo of the sunset.
