“Small intimate great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Went early evening on a busy Thursday night. They do a very good value set menu but we ate off main menu and were not disappointed. Everything was well cooked and my husband said his starter of French Onion Soup was one of the best he had tasted. Good wine menu great service will definetly go again. As gets very busy recommend that you book .

“Lovely small old town restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

Great service and small intimate atmosphere Food was very good about £100 for two with wine I would recommend the restaurant to any foodies visiting Poole and also the Cruel Sea was very good although a ten minute taxi ride out of town . Storm next door also looked very good but we did not visit

“Lovely restaurant great service & excellent quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 August 2014 via mobile

Went for the first time last night with friends

This is an intimate bistro. Great atmosphere. Excellent menu.

We chose starters or moules, whitebait, homemade onion soup & tempura prawns. All were excellent & really nicely presented

Mains of homemade fish pie, double cooked soufflé & coq au vin. Again all were excellent. No room for dessert!!!!

Some lovely wine to accompany as well

We will definitely return :-)

Make sure you book early as is deservedly very popular

“Small, intimate location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014 via mobile

Went there in February for a valentines day meal.

Good location and easy to get too. Small venue and only two or three couples in there. Made to feel very welcome by the waiting staff, who were very attentive throughout. We had a few bottles of wine and a lovely meal, all at a reasonable price considering the superb quality of the food.

We only moved down to the area last August, however, Bingley's are very high up on our list of restaurants in the area. We will definitely be returning later on in the year.
