Everywhere in Wimborne was fully-booked. It was cold and wet and we were hungry. Without much hope we asked at Number 9 - they had just had a cancellation, so we were lucky! Boy, were we lucky! What a superb place! It has a Michelin star, so the prices are high, and we certainly couldn't afford to go regularly, but... More

This restaurant is just so lovely, small and friendly. Tonight, I enjoyed the lamb main course and my friend the cod. We are both small eaters, otherwise we would try the starters and the deserts. I am sure they would be equally as good. I was chatting to the sous chef and his colleague this evening and they are so... More

This is a great place for Sunday lunch with friends. The atmosphere is friendly, the service excellent and the food very good. There's a good choice on the menu and both starters and puddings innovative.

Table booking was great. Menu and specials had a wide variety. All dishes came very well presented and cooked to perfection. Meat was as requested; tender and balanced well with the supporting vegetables. Wine menu was ok with variety of grape, region and country. Service was attentive. We had a lovely evening.

I visited Wimborne again last week and popped in to Number 9 and it was still the same enjoyable experience. I had tried another eatery in the town ,just before Christmas, but it did not come up to Number 9's level. Once again I had a warm ,friendly welcome, good food, brilliant atmosphere and all served up by the loveliest... More
