Eight of us went for an evening meal. Very relaxed and ultra trendy atmosphere. Staff were very attentive and the menu offered a great variety to choose from. We opted for what they call their "Taster" menu which is a two course sharing meal with loads to choose from. Extremely varied and well cooked food and bearing in mind this... More

We were down from London for a few days staying in a local holiday rental. We walked past this place and checked out tripadvisor which had good reviews. Food and service were fantastic - quality very good and everything cooked fresh. Sort of a Spanish mix with Tapas as well as mains courses. They have a thing for Cheese! :)... More

James Fowler's amazing Larder House is a real find. Great decor, super vibe and lovely food, professionally served. Really interesting menu, all cooked from fresh to perfection. A must try if you're in the Boscombe/Christchurch area.

My son and I had a good evening here, we had tapas and some delicious wine. The only downside was very slow service. It was a Friday night so they were very busy but it was difficult to catch the waiter's eye both to order food and later to pay.

We went for a late Sunday lunch and all had roast dinners which were excellent. The beef was tender and delicious, the lamb excellent and the ham hock massive and really tasty. We skipped deserts and went to the upstairs bar and had a few cocktails from a very knowledgable mixologist. Booked and going again soon with family and looking... More

Finally got a table, although it was a 6.30pm booking it didn't matter the restaurant oozed atmosphere! The menu was intriguing but not complicated and the chef and his team, with ease, 'right in front of me' produced first class quality master pieces! Risotto without rice, perfection ?!? "Try the crumble" he said, never in all my years tasted crumble... More

Our visit to the Larder House was not to the restaurant but to "The Library" cocktail bar upstairs. (It deserves its own listing on Trip Advisor.) This was a great experience. The bar has a quirky decor, comfy chairs, polished service and an interesting range of cocktails. Some were from the menu, some were built to order using flavours that... More

Our first visit to this restaurant and certainly impressed. Really quirky place (so nice to find something a bit different nowadays!) offering fabulous food ranging from tapas to sharing platters to starters, mains and desserts. We had beef brisket lasagne, recommended by the server, which was very tasty. Good portion and service excellent. Outdoor seating at the bar and we... More

Had heard that The Larderhouse does a wonderful roast dinner so had to go and see for myself! I had roast chicken and my partner opted for roast beef, I was disappointed that the skin on my chicken wasn't crispy, however the roast potatoes were amazing, really crispy and seasoned to perfection! The carrots, red cabbage and cauliflower cheese was... More
