This lovely restaurant is about halfway between Bournemouth and Sandbanks. Stopped off for a coffee and ended up having a naughty piece of cake! They looked too delicious to ignore! There is a lovely roof terrace overlooking the sea and dogs seemed to be allowed on the decking at the front. The staff were all friendly and welcoming and it... More

Not the most interesting of beaches but it's a nice walk out to sandbanks! The path cuts off towards the end but if you've got decent shoes you can continue walking out.

Right on the beach, this relaxing place is well worth a visit. We enjoy coming here every time. The food is not the cheapest but acceptable. The staff are good but the lady that does the seating would do better being more friendly. If you dare to turn up 30 seconds before the time of your booking, you will regret... More

We have eaten here many times. We have had lunch for family gatherings, birthday meals, birthday breakfasts and just the two of us - Mr and Mrs B. Every time we visit the food is wonderful, the staff are welcoming, friendly and nothing is to much trouble.

Whilst taking a walk from Sanbanks towards Bournemouth we came across this cafe and went in for hot drinks as it was a chilly day. Downstairs you have to queue up and wait to be seated but upstairs you can seat yourself and go to the counter to order your drinks/snacks. There is an outside balcony or inside tables and... More

We arrived after lunch and were offered a wonderful table overlooking the sea. The staff were excellent - waiters/waitresses and the boss! We had afternoon tea which was generous and of high quality - very impressed and, whilst they will never be the cheapest, they were excellent. Staff were A1, quality of the food A1 and the view ......

Beautiful sunny day, sat outside as we had the dog with us, we both had a fabulous Tuna Nicoise Salad and a cold glass of Pinot Grigio. Tuna cooked perfectly, salad fresh, crunchy & tasty with a great dressing. Probably the best we have ever had. Good service, bill not unreasonable. Will go back as the other dishes being served...

I understand this is in a beautiful location but was surprised when two lemonades, from a syrup mixer tap, cost £2.95 each! The people we were with had a variety of coffees which were made from pressing a button on a machine, costing upwards of £3 each. We didn't order main meals or use the toileting facilities. There is a... More

The Branksome Beach combines very good food with friendly service and an excellent location for lunch on a sunny winter day. Food quality and presentation was very good and the staff were very helpful with our Grand children. Car parking was a challenge as there was a jet ski meeting taking place but they did provide the entertainment. I look... More
