This is our absolute favourite restaurant in Poole. The food is first class and the service is faultless. Highly recommended.

One of the best Christmas lunches we have ever had. Fabulous welcome and a lovely table that could easily have seated 4 but they did not cram too many people in giving us plenty of space. my husband had pre ordered our wine, everything was there waiting for us. There was a gift for each table which was a nice touch.

Each course served beautifully, turkey cooked just right, moist and full of flavour. Good selection of vegetables served separately. We shared the meringue desert and a cheese board, not much left on our plates at the end it was all just so good.

Chef came out at the end for a chat, brilliant and makes you feel special!

No rush between courses, lovely atmosphere. Lunch took us 2.5 hours in total, absolutely perfect for us!

Thank you so much for a wonderful afternoon. We will be back for a meal or two in 2013!

Have been to the Guildhall a few times now. The Food, Atmosphere & service are second to none. They pay a lot of attention to detail & I think this pays off. They are always fully booked at least a week in advance. Keep up the good work

Took a friend for a quiet lunch at the Guildhall Tavern. The place was full but managed to stay intimate. The food was delicious - I had the scallops for starters which were sweet, buttery and very fresh. For main course I chose the monk fish which was cooked to perfection in a delicious sauce. The service was excellent too - discreetly attentive, just how it should be.

All in all a delightful experience. I will definitely go again.
