The views on a nice day are amazing and there are plenty of outside seating. However, the service is very slow and the staff although they try their best they really look as though they dont want to be there.

    I booked afternoon tea as a Valentine surprise for my husband.
    We had coffee which was lovely unfortunately the offered refills took a very long time to come; I asked three times before the refill was served.
    We both enjoyed the selection, I particularly liked the chocolate slice and strawberry trifle, delicious!
    My husband prefers savoury and would have enjoyed more sandwiches or other things such as mini quiche, tarts, cheese straws.
    Overall it was an enjoyable experience.

    Great Afternoon Tea. Offered free prosecco each when there was a delay with the sandwiches.

    We had traditional tea which was good. Booking on line was easy, on. our arrival the receptionist said the Skybar was not open and told us to sit in reception she never came back to us. So we made our own way to the bar.
    We were welcomed and served by a very polite and personable chap, who regularly came to table to ask if we wanted any top up"s.

    The Sky Bar was the perfect setting for my friend's birthday afternoon tea. The food was presented in a unique way and added to the experience. There was a great selection of sandwiches, scones and cakes. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and made us feel that nothing was too much trouble. The lovely views over Bournemouth and out to sea made the afternoon perfect for a special treat.

    Atentive staff, nice venue and well prepared snacks. But the selection of food is far too small (only five) and the prices for the drinks were way too expensive. We spent just under £70 for two cocktails and four selections of tapas. No wonder the place was empty on a Friday night! I hope they realise it before it's too late. It would be a shame as it has a lot going for it.

    Nice afternoon tea. Friendly staff.

    Order of things could have been better as the sandwiches came before we had even ordered our tea which then took 10-15 minutes.

    We would also have liked more savoury food. Three fingers of sandwiches didn't really balance out with all the delicious cakes and desserts.

    Otherwise it was a good experience with tasty food.
