I came here twice in the time I was working in Poole, the food was well cooked and tasted delicious. Good cuts of meat and we'll seasoned. Only thing is the place could do with a bit of freshening up, bathrooms were a bit dirty.

Had dinner here with a group of 8 friends. We were initially disappointed to see they charge a 10% gratuity on tables of 7 or more. No need as service charge should be earned not presumed. As it happened the service was quite slow. Food...More

Yes, but you will have to find it on the ground level, then there is 1 minute or so walk to the restaurant, if it is working? I guess any local can tell you where you get access, enjoy the meal if you make it
