The welcome was exceptional and not rushed in anyway, and given time to choose from the menu. It was noted how fresh all the vegetables looked and tasted, and good choice of vegetarian food. I booked online and found it very easy. Great improvement from the last time to went there about a year ago.

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.

    We were disappointed....when food arrived it was cold and all of us had to send it back. It was obviously stuck in a microwave and was returned with hard veg and Yorkshire pudding and had been completely covered in a dark gravy. We did eat it, but it was poor and we will not go back there again for a roast dinner. The waitress did her best, it wasn't her fault.

    A very nice, cozy restaurant with a good atmosphere. Very friendly staff and attentive service. Unfortunately my wife's fish course was undercooked and raw in places. To their credit, we were not charged for her dish. The rest of our meals were fine and this is our first eerie centre of poor food at this restaurant.

    I sent you an e mail pointing out that you never had angostura bitters which I like in lemon and llme and often used for cocktails. When we had lunch recently , a partry of 4 there was none. Given that i responded to your e mail request and it was acknowledged to find you had none was somewhat negative!!!!!!!!!!!!! Allan Chilvers
