“A Most Enjoyable Lunch.”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

My husband and I have just returned from The Quay Inn having thoroughly enjoyed a Groupon meal which was given to us as a gift. The service we received and the standard of the food were both excellent especially the wonderful crab and lobster bisque starter which was a meal in itself. We have passed this Inn many times before and have not gone in as it isn't that inviting from the outside BUT having now experienced what lies within we'll certainly be going there again when we are next in the area.

“Not the best in Town”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We visited for drinks only so cannot comment on the food.
The bar staff were all standing around chatting! one of the locals had to point out we were waiting! We ordered our drinks and sat down near the fire which was on so that was good. The place itself was not very clean, in fact in places it was very messy.
There was no real atmosphere in the place and the staff were certainly neither attentive or particularly friendly. The boss/manager arrived and stood behind the bar shouting out about wages and shifts. Didn't actually serve anyone.
We didn't visit again whilst we were staying in Wareham.

“Lovely meal and good service”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

We had a sharing platter for starters which was very very different and most enjoyable. I followed with the duck which was cooked perfectly and had a lovely jus which, although very tasty, did not overpower the duck. My husband had the fish and chips with a coriander tempura which was light, crisp and all hand cooked to perfection. The staff were friendly yet not too obtrusive in their service, great!!!

“very good”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

good presentation, friendly staff, excellent food and good value for money, there's a car park right out side but do get a ticket as there are parking wardens in the area.

“Have the burger!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

We didn't fancy much for lunch then we saw the burgers, they are hand made quarter pounders and are devine, the chips were great too all served on a long wooden platter. We were served fairly promptly ( 25 minute wait) but it was worth it. Good selection of ciders and helpful cheerful staff particularly the chef 'Biggles' will return and probably have exactly the same as it was yummy but go hungry the portions are vast! We sat outside overlooking the river, lovely.
