Excellent service. Interesting menu and all very well prepared. The duck duo was particularly good.

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.

    The Libertine has had a smart makeover and has a distinct split between the bar area and the restaurant which works really well. The staff are friendly and efficient. The food is outstanding! The steaks are top restaurant standard and the pizzas are amazing. The prices are extremely reasonable for the quality of the food. Everyone should definitely visit!

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