Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Consistently delivers the very best in terms of menu choice, food quality and service. Very well managed venue and it shows. Great atmosphere inside and its great value for money considering what you are getting. The menu is very creative and we love that it...gets the occasional change but they keep the classics on it. Service is fun and friendly but also very attentive and professional. Have simply never had a single negative experience in 20+ visits.More

My partner and I visited your restaurant in Wednesday evening this week after several recommendations. We booked online for the waiting list and were called within minutes to say there was a table available. To be honest we were blown away - our high expectations...were exceeded. The menu looked amazing - a really varied and balanced selection of dishes. The food and drinks were delicious - even tastier than they looked on the menu! However, the service was outstanding. Our server Katie was flawless - personable and professional, with a real attention to detail. She is such a a credit to you - we felt really looked after. Thanks so much for having us - we can't wait to be back.More

A prompt welcome to our table, an offer to take our coats, comfortable seats, good spacing between tables, with cutlery clean and shiny. A great start to an excellent meal. Being a Monday, the restaurant wasn't very busy, but had a nice atmosphere. We each...enjoyed different dishes at Dicky's; flavoursome, well presented and generous portions. I'd loved to have seen some free-range chicken/meat on the menu. We enjoyed desserts, chocolate-free choices were a bit limited, but being freshly made, they were able to adapt a couple for us. Service was efficient, slightly formal, but attentive throughout. We'd definitely return when next staying in Southbourne.More

Fabulous meal. The husband had the Slow Braised Lamb Shank. The meat fell off the bone and was cleverly served with braised red cabbage to add a sweet hint. The dauphinois was butter soft. I opted for the Dutch Steak, served pink (yum) with a...Dutch gravy, fries and bread - for mopping up. The steak was sublime, I hardly needed a steak Knife. I wasn’t too keen on the gravy when mopped up with the bread but it didn’t detract from the truly delightful steak. We finished off with a chocolate brownie with vanilla ice cream and Sticky Toffee pudding, The staff are very friendly - shout out to Lynne - and the whole atmosphere is relaxed and friendly whilst also running like a well oiled machine. We will definitely return.More

Really love the style of this restaurant. Arrived at 6.15pm and already fairly busy for a Monday evening. Usual Autumn/Winter menu but disappointed that moules were already sold out and no specials either. Nevertheless food was great as was the service. Would be great if...the menu changed more regularly then twice a year. We would definitely visit more regularly then.More

We hadn't been for a while and had recently heard from friends that the service had dropped off (a complaint about a disappointing steak was dismissed), however, it was great. The steak was excellent, other dishes fresh and tasty - at a decent price. Great...selection of good wines at fair prices.More

What an amazing place, the Staff are so friendly and welcoming. I went with my family to celebrate my 76 birthday, I was thoroughly spoilt by the Staff. The menu is the best one we have seen in a long time, I went for the...Ribeye steak with Saute veg, the Steak looked wonderful but it was very sinuey and had to leave half as I couldn't chew it, but the Starter and Dessert were delicious most of the family had the Dutch steak and loved it, had a wonderful time and will definately be back.
