Called, this morning, for a quick coffee prior to shopping in Wimborne with my wife. Decor superb, and each table laid up for lunch, but young waitress kindly removed all the napery etc prior to our being seated. Coffee, although freshly made, was lukewarm - very disappointing. I guess we should have gone to No9 on the Green instead, or... More

We have eaten here in the past and were very pleased which is why we were happy to book lunch again. However this time very disappointed, Rustic table cracks full of crumbs, dirty cutlery, hair in dinner, cold plates rock hard sprouts, very over priced for what there was. Did not complain at the time as distressing for elderly mother... More

Took my family here based on TA reviews, could not have been happier. The place was full but neither noisy nor packed. Service friendly and efficient. The food was creative, fresh, well-balanced and beautifully presented. And good! Fish, meat, starters mains and desserts all excellent. All in a cosy and lovely room.

In the area and just looked for a good place to stop for the night, and hopefully a good place to eat too. Number 9 met and exceeded both of these expectations. Bed & breakfast was easy and cosy; dinner in the restaurant was a delight with local, seasonal and delicious options.

Number 9 has become our Number 1 restaurant over the years. We visit regularly and have never experienced anything less than charming and efficient staff, great wine and even better food. This occasion simply served to reinforce our prejudice, A wonderful place!
