We do like to be beside the seaside, and if you do too, head to Bournemouth for some nautical-inspired eating. Whether you’re here to surf or stroll along the promenade, restaurants in Bournemouth are sure to delight at the beginning, middle, or end of a busy day. Bournemouth restaurants include fish & chip venues in spades, along with some traditional seaside hotel eateries, and a smattering of great pubs and reliable chains.
Set in free-spirited Westbourne, The Libertine is a popular gastro pub with flair aplenty. The venue’s interior is truly elegant, featuring carefully chosen reclaimed pieces. The menu focuses on the fresh and seasonal, and features a signature selection of UK steaks. At the Libertine, they’re keen on real ale to the point that they have their own brew: the silky Libertine Gold.
For a quintessentially English setting with an up-to-date twist, it has to be the Green Room at the Green House Hotel. This venue is not just green by name: the hotel and restaurant are run on thoroughly environmentally sound systems. Delicious seasonal and locally sourced food dominates the menu, and you’ll know you’re doing your bit for the environment, too.
