We stopped in with a family of 4, prices were OK and the food was acceptable. It was a busy Sunday night, staff had a hard time keeping up with clearing tables. Food was fine, but very in refined.

Friday fish, chips and peas meal with a drink. Excellent value for money and very friendly and helpful staff. Highly recommended and a nice view of the harbour. Also lovely to sit outside with a drink and enjoying the view. Will certainly visit again.

Decent service and reasonable service. There are nicer places for dinner but a decent pub for a few beers at the end of an evening!

JD Wetherspoons The Quay is located on the bustling quayside overlooking Brownsea Island and the World's second largest natural harbour. During the summer months The Quay plays host to various events from classic cars and motorbike nights to pirate family fun days and fireworks nights! A little bit of History: The Quay was the name of the existing pub, taken over by Wetherspoon in March 2004, and has occupied this former warehouse since c1996. In Tudor times, the Quayside was called the Great Quay, even though it was less than 200 feet long! The Little Quay was added and further extended in the late 18th century. This was the New Quay, where this pub and warehouses and wharves were built.
