With a rich culinary heritage as a farmhouse, The Curlew near Bournemouth continues to offer traditional British pub cuisine with a welcoming rustic appearance. It features classic Victorian brick-work, a charming hearth-fire and al fresco outdoor seating, which enjoys great views around its secluded country location.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Curlew menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Curlew ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Curlew is just 14 minutes’ drive from Bournemouth Train Station.

    Nice night at The Curlew. Service a bit slow so hope this improves when the season is in full flow. Food was tasty and staff as cheery as usual.
