Description: Here at The Iford Bridge you'll find everything you'd expect from a good food pub in Bournemouth - but with plenty of added sizzle. From our famous mouthwatering skillets and tasty British classics to our unbeatable value for money and warm, family-friendly atmosphere, it's no wonder the people of Boscombe, Southbourne and Christchurch can't get enough of this Sizzling pub.

We visit here every so often. I call it our cheap and cheerful. We like it here when we don't want to spend a fortune eating out elsewhere. The menu has changed recently. Food is ok but you get what you pay for. Service seems to be disappearing as you now have to get your own cutlery and nobody comes back to ask how your meal is. There seems to be less staff, which is a shame as the staff that have been there a while seem strained whereas previously they had time to give service with a smile. We don't visit as often as we used to.

I reviewed this place in 2012 and gave it a good review but returning to this restaurant with a massive group of people AGAIN they really had let the side down the food and service was appalling. Every year we visit this area for new year celebrations and thought we had found a gem well not this time the food was worse than processed microwaved crap the big room in the back was freezing and they new we were coming they had had months notice not minutes the manager appears grumpy but to be honest seemed to be the only one doing anything oh apart from the sweaty waitress who delivers your food well I think you get the picture.
I will not remove my previous review as this is supposed to be an honest account which this is that was then this was now unfortunately this place has lost a very big booking.
