Beautiful coffee in fantastic surroundings. Sat outside watched the tide come in and took in the harbour views. Would love to stay here it feels so serene......

Thank you so much for the great review - we try to open the doors to everyone at the upper deck whether it be 7 course tasting menu a sandwich, afternoon tea or a simple coffee. The one thing they should all have in common is quality and it is rewarding to see that it is being achieved!

We look forward to your return

The sun came out so we decided to re visit Christchurch Harbour Hotel for lunch, some years ago it was in need of desperate renovation. However we were pleasantly surprised to find a total make over. We pre booked only hours before leaving on the 80 mile trip and were lucky to get a booking.

Sunday Lunch was very good and 3 courses with champagne for £25. The service was good and the food excellent. Luckily we had a table when they opened in the window with amazing views.

Within 1/2 hour the place was packed! The only down side to the restaurant was the high level of noise when full.

Will be visiting again very soon

Thank you for the great review the whole team have loved your kind words.

A lot of hard work has gone into Sundays and the production of a brand new menu so it is even more rewarding to see how much it is being enjoyed!

Look forward to your return

Myself and a friend visited the upper deck restaurant as part of a spa package at the christchurch harbour hotel and spa. The hotel has a fantastic location, right on the waters edge, and the restaurant has amazing views over the water. It is beautifully decorated, and has a very welcoming atmosphere, in fact, all of the staff we spoke to were very friendly, polite, and genuinely nice.
We booked in for an afternoon tea. I have a number of allergies, but I was very reassured and so happy that the restaurant manager said that they could accomodate me, and wow, what an amazing afternoon tea we had! Myself and friend had one cake stand each, with mine all being gluten free, and hers normal. My food was Beautiful, I had a variety of sandwiches, scones with cream and jam, 2 huge pieces of cake, and a gorgeous chocolate mousse too. Everything tasted so nice, and was beautifully presented. It is so lovely when you have allergies to be lucky enough to come to a restaurant like the upper deck, and I have lots of thanks to give to all of the staff who made me feel so welcome. My friends afternoon tea was also wonderful. This restaurant really has the whole package-fantastic, helpful and friendly staff, a wonderful location, and beautiful food! We will be returning as soon as we can!

Just went in on the off chance there would be a table available, we were lucky and the friendly staff took our order, drinks soon followed as we enjoyed the view. It was hard to choose, with such a variety of food. We enjoyed the Sunday roast, the beef was so tender and the service was excellent. We will recommend this restaurant to all.
