Popped in for coffee and snacks during Airshow weekend, the coffee shop was spacious and clean, coffee ok and acceptable, but appeared to be out of a machine and not freshly brewed, which was a tad disappointing!
the choice of sandwiches and snacks was not huge, but managed to find a panini which was nice and did not have to wait too long either, not sure if they do more substantial meals as there were no menus on tables?

Thank SANDS22

Hi and thank you for your review. We are pleased you liked your panini and found the café to be spacious and clean. Please be assured our coffee is Barista made using freshly ground Lavazza beans and we are always happy to replace any items if you are not 100% satisfied.

If you are looking for a meal rather than the sandwiches, panini’s, cakes and snacks we offer at the BIC café, our Terrace Bistro, located at the Bournemouth Pavilion just a few minutes walk away, has a selection of freshly made platters and is well worth a visit next time you are in town. Thank you again and we hope to welcome you back again soon. Alex R, Hospitality General Manager

Been here on a number of occasions, most recently for the Lee Evans, "Monsters" tour. No queueing to get in, or more importantly, at the bar...perhaps just lucky timing.
Luckily for us we had excellent seats in row F so we had a brilliant view.
Other occasions visiting here include seeing Bastille in March. Slightly different experience as no floor seating, however still a great venue.
The venue itself feels relatively intamite despite its size, which personally, makes for a more enjoyable entertainment experience. The only downside to venues such as this however is the ridiculous prices for purchasing food and drink on the premises, apart from that, would definitely recommend!
