Description: The award winning and luxuriously decorated restaurant in The Queens Hotel can comfortably seat up to 220 guests, each one invited to savour and enjoy the imaginative menu. Many of the dishes use local fresh produce and are prepared superbly to the highest standards of quality by the Executive Chef, which are then all enhanced with a selection of hand-picked wines from around the world. Along with the highly commended and accommodating staff, the restaurant has won many awards, resulting in an enviable reputation for culinary excellence. The garden room, lounge and bar radiate a charming and relaxing ethos, accompanied by a splendid choice of wines, beers and spirits. This feeling can also entice people into the garden during bright days, where you can enjoy the sun and the delightful drinks of the bar.

“Awful New Year's Eve”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2013

We were shown to a table for 2 in the middle of a big space in a soulless room 'below stairs'. No decoration, no music, no atmosphere. After more than one hour we had had melon and 1 glass of wine. We were expecting a fun evening with music and entertainment. We were told that we would be able to go and stand in the already overcrowded main dining room to watch the 'Elvis' impersonator after the meal - Where to then??? The young inexperienced staff were sympathetic and constantly apolo. We could not bear to sit there for another 4 hours so we paid for what we had and left. We were lucky, we went to the nearby Chine Hotel where they set up a table for us in a warm friendly restaurant with lots of music, atmosphere, good food and friendly staff. The Queen's Hotel could not have cared less and we received no apology from the management.

Thank you for taking the time to write.

I am unreservedly sorry that you did not enjoy your New Year’s Eve with us. The area you were dining is extremely popular with weddings as it such a glamorous and aesthetically pleasing suite.

I have included the dinner menu which was positively received:

Air Dried Ham Roulade.
Creamed Cheese, Marinated Olives, Sun Blushed Tomatoes & Pesto Dressing

Chilled Melon Pearls
Cointreau, Champagne, Raspberries

Fresh Wild Mushroom & Tarragon Soup
Croutons

******

Char Grill Lemon & Black Pepper Marinated Lamb Best End
Parsnip & Rosemary Mousseline, Rich Red Wine Glaze

Grilled Local Bournemouth Bay Whole Dover Sole
Lobster, Chive Butter

Ratatouille Feuilletée
Fresh Tomato Confit & Basil Sauce

******

Pecan & Cranberry Sponge
Vanilla Ice Cream

A Selection of Dessert from the Buffet

A Selection of Cheese & Biscuits
Grapes, Celery and Chutney

******

Coffee & Petit Fours

The entertainment consisted of an Elvis tribute, a Scottish Piper and the to be expected party music and balloon net.

I am sorry that we could not convince you to stay a little longer than you did.

Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss this further.
