“Outstanding in every way”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

From the moment we entered to the time we left the staff at Number 9 could not have been more attentive. Our waitress was extremely well informed with the ingredients of each dish and made us all feel very special. Perfect timing with regard to delivery of all three courses. The decor is beautiful also tables not all cramped together. We had one of the best tables, the round one in the window. The food was exceptional. Beautifully presented using local produce. I chose from the Specials Board, fish pie. Puff pastry top instead of mash worked really well. Full of chunky pieces of perfectly cooked fish. Desert of salted caramel sticky pudding ! what can I say. Perfect venue for any occasion. We are from London visiting our friends in Corfe Mullen - can't want to go back.

“Good portions (at last) of excellent food”
Reviewed 17 August 2014 via mobile

In the past I've been somewhat disappointed with the small portions of albeit lovely food at served up at No 9 - but last night things had changed!

Last night so-called nouvelle cuisine took a step back as wonderful food was served in more satisfying quantities. I somehow think this is just what most diners wish for.

Apart from this I can't add anything to what's already been said.

“Fantastic food, plenty to eat, lovely atmosphere, best place in Wimborne.”
Reviewed 11 August 2014

Food here is outstanding. I am told that the head chef has worked in some impressive places and you can really tell! All of our courses were well presented and delicious. The only suggestion I would make is to up the portion sizes a little because some of our less " foody" friends only care about how much they get - next time I will treat them to an " all you can eat!"
Totally fantastic place to eat, and certainly a place we shall keep coming back too!

“Tasty and Innovative”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Interesting dishes all beautifully presented. Some may feel the portions are on the light side but they were perfectly adequate for us.
