“Good Grub - Good Customer Service!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

My Partner and I stopped here for a bit of lunch at 1.30pm Tuesday 15th January'14.
We chose the lunch menu - Hamburger and fries with a slice of cheese £5.99, Glass of Vino and Table Water, and was offered ice and Lime!! The food was yummy, and this is coming from a bit of a foody! Could it it right now....just thinking about it. Great value for money, the hamburger was fresh and of good quality, fries yummy.... My Partner had dessert - Apple Crumble and Custard for £2.49 - can't go wrong!
Really enjoyed, best thing as well was the Customer Service, had a lovely waitress and then a lovely young waiter....did not get their names, which is a shame, but were really attentive. My partner has worked in the hospitality business for years and was really pleasantly surprised. Thank you will be back for a burger! Ha!

“Very Poor”
Reviewed 12 January 2014

In October we visited the Lynton another Table Table in Bournemouth and it was good so we took the grand kids for a teat before going back to school after Christmas. The Bailey Bridge hotel looked full so we assumed the restaurant would be full - it wasn't and we found out why. The service was mediocre and slow at best but the portion sizes were a complete joke e.g. £11-12 for a piece of dry fish not much larger than a fish finger! Avoid until it improves. There are some truly great pubs around the area that put this to great shame

“Gone down hill dramatically in last year”
Reviewed 4 January 2014

We have eaten here many times since conversion a few years ago. It used to be good food and good value. Lately though it's been getting less good; portions are smaller, meat is dry and tough. The last straw for us was when a family birthday celebration before Christmas was ruined when, fortunately one of the adults, cut their tongue on some glass in their dessert- apparently caused by the chef having a strop and slamming two dishes together.i agree with previous reviewer - this place should now carry health warning.

“This place should carry a health warning”
Reviewed 16 November 2013

Ate here with a friend several days ago, we both had the rib and chicken combo which wasn't good and we both got stomach cramps approximately 24 hours later. We have been vomiting and had diarrhoea ever since - Coincidence? I very much doubt it!!!

“Great for Adults and Children alike.”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

We have eaten many times at Table Table and find it to be great value for money.
We often stay at Premier Inn next door when visiting relations in Christchurch.
The service is friendly but not too familiar. The staff are always extremely nice to our grandchildren who love going there.
Breakfasts are excellent and the quality of the food has improved over the last couple of years.
The way the seating is arranged can provide privacy if required.
Lunch and dinner are exceptionally good for a restaurant like this and compare favourably with other chains.
Overall I would highly recommend Table Table - especially if treating children to a meal out.
I would also recommend the children's meals to those travellers who want small portions!
My only regret? They have discontinued the duck parcels with chilli sauce which we looked forward to as a starter!
