In quirky Westbourne, The Libertine offers homely British classics and an impressive bar stock. The pride of The Libertine, the outdoor Forge is a sheltered brick area filled with reclaimed furniture and a crackling wood burner.

Committed to working with the best suppliers, The Libertine in Westbourne is renowned for its charcoal-grilled steaks, delicious sharing platters and innovative puddings. From the varied Libertine menu, sample marinated duck skewers with cooling cucumber yoghurt, seafood and chorizo linguine, or the coriander lamb burger.

A comforting children’s menu offers dishes like mac ‘n’ cheese or bread hake, while experimental dessert flavours include chocolate and chilli praline torte, or plum & damson soup with vanilla panna cotta. A renowned wine cellar at Libertine features fine vintages, and locally-brewed ales are pulled at the bar.

In the dining room, vintage light fittings cast a subtle glow across the brilliant brass bar, rich caramel leather and hefty wooden furnishings. The Libertine bar is a 5-minute drive from central Bournemouth and the coast.

    Very good dining experience, lovely food, I think though that on their wine menu, prices for bottles of white wine should be displayed.

  • ((((* 13 October 2015 by Ian Nicholls from Westbourne

    This was a good dining experience. The staff were helpful and friendly. The booking procedure was straight forward and efficient.
    I had the rump steak which was unremarkable yet expensive! I would NOT order this again.

    On arriving at the Libertine we shown to our table. One of our party has a citrus allergy and this was catered for. They had very kindly ticked things on the menu which which were citrus free. Also this person had ha d a puncture which needed attention and the waiting staff held back our meal until this was sorted out. I have nothing but praise for the way we were treated. We asked if we could change tables and it was no trouble at all.

    The staff were polite and attentive, the food was excellent so much so that we have booked our Christmas get together at the Libertine.

    Thank you for making our visit so enjoyable.

    We dined here around 2pm on 29 Dec. The steaks were gorgeous and done to our liking. Wine excellent and service great. The place was not very busy but this must be expected just after Christmas. Would return even though not local to area.
