“Beach bar”
Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

This place is ideal to chill out with a cold beer and sea view although the lager is very limited, nothing fancy, direct beach access plenty of seating and ideal if you've just pulled up on a jetski or boat.
Unfortunately the food is absolutely dire for the price..

“Hugely overpriced. Relies purely on location. Food is terrible.”
Reviewed 3 October 2013

Charged over £12 for a glass of wine and two soft drinks - more than in SW London. I know it can charge what it likes because of it's location, and I have no objection to paying for this, but to be completely ripped off is another thing.

I had a chicken thing in a wrap - terrible, tasteless, limp and overpriced.

“Menu needs improvement”
Reviewed 4 September 2013

Nice food but everything comes with chips. Burger and chips, fish and chips, even sandwiches come with crisps and an optional side order of chips. Not much choice if you are trying to eat healthily.

“Fantastic location”
Reviewed 27 August 2013

Brilliant location and views, staff friendly but a little forgetful (had 3 occasions were people had to chase drinks). Burgers on barbecue night were average, band were great.

“When the weather is good you could be on the French Riviera”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

The terrace at the Sandbanks Hotel is a great place to spend the day and is open to non residents. Took friends for their wedding anniversary and had lunch on the terrace overlooking the white sandy beach and the sea. Brunchy lunch quite nice and informal, but sitting with a gin and tonic admiring the view made it memorable. Spent the afternoon on the beach before returning for a very good cream tea. On a sunny day, its as good as it gets in England!
