We loved the quirky, relaxed atmosphere of the Living Room. The staff were very friendly and the food was lovely. The scones, jam and cream were particularly delicious!

Inside Bournemouth's only boutique B&B, The Living Room serves celebrated afternoon teas on vintage china, in a delightfully British setting. There is a tree-sheltered al fresco area perfect for outdoor dining when weather permits.

The Living Room afternoon tea menu has been carefully crafted to include the best in award-winning loose leaf teas and freshly-prepared British traditions. There are finger sandwich selections of classics like cream cheese and cucumber, and freshly-made scones and cakes, including warm banana bread with cinnamon butter.

Savoury afternoon tea options include Dorset charcuterie meats, quail egg and black pudding Scotch egg, as well as local mini beers. Gluten-free options at The Living Room are extensive, and the teas range from Persian Earl Grey to Egyptian mint.

The Living Room Bournemouth is a local institution thanks to its unparalleled afternoon teas, and it sits a short walk to the beach, and 6 minutes' drive from Banksome Rail Station.

    The staff were friendly and the restaurant was nicely decorated. We had made a reservation but were told that the restaurant hadn't received our booking and therefore had not prepared for our afternoon tea order. We were made to wait a little while, as the chefs prepared the afternoon tea. Sandwiches and scones were delicious but the cakes were not that great.
