“Love This Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

Come here weekly. Always a friendly welcome. My daughter says they do the best blue cheese burgers ever! A brilliant, friendly chef who's around and about. Love the decor, the atmosphere, everything. Such a lovely, welcoming change from the awful chain restaurants. Already looking forward to my next visit next week!

“Great hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

This place is tucked away in a side street, but it's a great place. Lovely staff, very friendly. We only had a drink, but great atmosphere and I hope that the food is just as good.

“Great food and service; just perfect for what we wanted.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

We went to the Dancing Jug after finding that Pizza Express across the road were too busy to fit us in (thankyou Pizza Express!). We needed something quick & tasty as were going to a concert at the BIC. We arrived at around 6.30 & the place was very quiet but got pretty busy over the next half an hour or so. The food was reasonably priced, very tasty and served quickly. The venue is quite small - basically a long bar with seating all the way alongside, a mix of standard tables and high tables with bar stools. We ordered the 'all you can eat' wings (Wednesday's special), ribs, a chilli burger & a plain burger. All very good - my burger was delayed due to a mishap in the kitchen but the waiter explained, apologised profusely and offered us 2 extra drinks on the house so we were quite happy. Would definitely visit again if in the area. (As a family with teenagers, it would need to be early evening as the sign by the door said over 21s only after 9pm).

“Great afternoon drinks and food a little loud later on.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014 via mobile

Fantastic atmosphere, service, food and drinks all afternoon on the Saturday of the bournemouth wheels festival. We did contemplate having dinner here that day too but needing to get home we didn't. I am not sure I would want an evening meal here though as the later the day got and the more drinks we and the other clientele had consumed the noisier it got.

Great for lunch or early evening meal but I wouldn't call it a dinner venue.
