“Happy customer!”
Reviewed 20 February 2014

Visited here on Wednesday evening for a girls night out. The waiter was very attentive and looked after us well. The meal tasted very good and a decent portion attractively presented. Obviously, very popular for birthdays (there were 3) when the lights are dimmed and a cake is brought out to the tune of happy birthday and congratulations. A thoroughly enjoyable night out.

“Food average but ok for lunch.”
Reviewed 17 February 2014

Me and the girls just want somewhere cheap and quick for lunch. We went there, it was ok, but ok for a quick lunch. It does has quite lots of choice which is nice. The restaurant is quite noisy but it's a family restaurant so we knew it will.
Staff are friendly as usual, so happy customer.

“Good service average food”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

This used to be a good place for me and the wife to have a lunch when the kids were at school and our days off coincide. Went yesterday for lunch and quite disappointed. Place was less than a quarter full but our meal took ages to arrive and portions were rubbish. Pulled pork bbq roll was over a tenner and menu said 'piled high with our delicious bbq pulled pork' what rubbish. Piddly amount and was more like a paste. Felt cheated. Standards keep falling there. Never again.

“Feeding the granddaughter!!”
Reviewed 3 February 2014

Stopped at F&B,s to feed a demanding grand daughter, service was friendly and efficient, restaurant was what you would expect on the outskirts of a large family designed entertainment park (Tower Park, Poole) on a Sunday afternoon full of noisy excited children and frustrated parents, so if this is not what you like stay away!! not a problem for us as we knew what it was like and that was part of the reason for the visit, the food was extremely good although the child's Pizza was rather large at only £4.25 for a meal drink and a sweet you can't complain.
Al in all a good visit and would definitely go back again.

“Great Food!”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

We came here for a meal on a Saturday at 5.30pm thinking it might be a bit quieter but we were wrong, luckily we had already booked a table in advance.
It took a little bit longer than expected to have our food order taken but that was fine as it was very busy in there.
The staff were very friendly and the food was fresh and cooked to perfection.
The only downside was the music they play when there is a birthday and the cake is being brought out, "Cliff Richard, Congratulations" this was played 3 times in 1 hour and it is played so much louder and does get rather annoying after the first time :) other than that great atmosphere and would recommend. Cost is a bit more priced than other places but well worth it.
