Came here with the family food was good but quite why we had to be served by someone with blue hair i don't know, not that she looked out of place with other staff members as one had purple hair and one scarlet red on top. The place looked like a circus show, hardly appropriate for work! I suppose the... More

Had such a lovely time here. It is situated in such a lovely area and the view is amazing. Was just stopping for a quick drink but ended up staying all evening. The drinks are reasonably priced and if you have tea or coffe you can keep going up for refills. The food was very tasty and good value. The... More

Items in salad bar fresh and we'll presented. Saw staff refreshing items regularly. Main meals lovely and my steak was cooked just as I asked. Only disappointment was rice pudding. Tasteless and consistency more... More

Situated on the sea front in Bournemouth. We have been here once before .It is a good little restaurant,it gets busy which is a good sign we managed to get a table for two. We had the tapas menu four items for £15 which was extremely good value although with this choice you can't use the salad cart.We were finished... More

My son brought us here when we visited him at university - we were a bit dubious as our local Harvester is not very good. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant is well placed overlooking the sea and we were made to feel very welcome. David, our server, was very accommodating and helpful especially when I ordered a jacket potato... More

Just thought I would write a quick review of how much we enjoyed our lunch at your restaurant today. I don't often write reviews but felt it was needed today. The food was fantastic as were the staff. We had a 1year old and he was very much looked after too! Will definitely return when we are visiting again!

Go to the Durley Inn about 6 or so times a year for breakfast and it is always good value. Good choice of food and service is always good.

Having eaten at the Durley many times over the years since I was a youngster, I was shocked by how rude the manager Simon was when I just tried to book for a group of 20 for a birthday 8 weeks in advance. On their website it says for parties over 10: "LARGE PARTY BOOKINGS For parties over 8 people,... More

Sirloin steak and chips was dreadful.The steak was so gristly that I could hardly cut into it. The chips were soggy, the tomato was pale and tasteless, the corn on the cob was overdone and tasteless and the mushroom had a strange taste. The onions rings were really batter rings with a minute shred of onion inside. Salad bar is... More
