The quality of the food, and especially the creative vegetarian dishes, was outstanding! An inspirational way of using vegetables and mouth-wateringly sumptuous tastes!

Overall very impressed with this little restaurant. The service was good, and it was relatively reasonably priced. The vegetarian options were good and I was surprised how tasty it all was.

After reading the reviews for this place I was expecting more. The menu is quite restricted. The lamb I had was inedible full of bones. Staff were not attentive had to remind them that we had ordered a bottle of wine after we had finished...More

The menu has 6 starters and 6 main courses, 2 of which are the fish dishes which change regularly. The lamb does not have any bones whatsoever which leads me to think that this reviewer perhaps did not dine with us?

Great Restaurant (which is within the Green House Hotel) with a comprehensive menu. Ambience within the restaurant and the bar good. Service superb. Will return when in Bournemouth.

Hi David, I know this is a little late but... we do have a separate fryer that we use for Coeliac diets but of course we do need to know in advance of this particular dietary requirement. Hope this helps! Olivia
