Arriving at this pretty Dorset pub feels like arriving on holiday, with guests greeted by palm trees out front and sea air. It’s a verdant oasis, just a 15 minute stroll from Bournemouth’s famous golden sand beaches, gardens and vibrant waterfront. The pub is under new ownership and has been completely renovated with sophisticated panache. Now a foodie destination, popular with locals and tourists alike, the menu showcases a passion for seasonality and locally sourced ingredients. The chef works closely with nearby suppliers to create innovative and delicious spins on British pub classics, with a particular focus on fresh fish and seafood caught that day. Behind the bar you’ll find award-winning Butcombe beer and cider, and a great selection of wine and cocktails. Outside, there’s a sun-soaked beer garden and spacious covered terrace for al fresco drinking and dining. There are 10 stylish new boutique bedrooms, rustic chic and full of personal touches. A perfect spot for a Bournemouth beach break with the family or a romantic Dorset escape, with Poole and Christchurch Harbour just a short drive away, too.
