Restaurant description

A stone’s throw from the seafront, Harry Ramsden’s Eastbeach occupies a prime position in this favourite coastal town. At this much-loved fish and chip restaurant, guests can dine at al fresco tables and enjoy views out onto the promenade and fairground rides.

Famed for its classic fish and chips and a closely guarded secret recipe, Harry Ramsden’s restaurants are a true favourite amongst the nation. Found in various UK locations, Harry Ramsden’s is a British institution, having served delicious fish dishes and British classics since 1928, when Harry Ramsden set up his first takeaway store.

Fresh and carefully sourced, the cod, plaice and haddock are deliciously battered and served with homemade chunky chips, and soused with salt and vinegar. Beautifully fresh fish isn’t all Harry Ramsden’s is famous for: the menu boasts great British dishes such as the mouth-watering premium pie and mash, or the chicken and scampi special. Harry Ramsden’s chip shop also has a fun and tasty kids' menu for the little ones, and signature dishes for senior diners.

Harry Ramsden’s restaurant Bournemouth is a 6-minute drive from Bournemouth Rail Station.

    Good food and service, let down by very poor appearance. In need of major refurbishment.

    The waitress who served us was very friendly, polite and efficient. My wife and I were served within a few minutes of sitting down and our meal arrived about five or six minutes later. We both had standard cod and chips with mushy peas followed by one bread and butter pudding and one sticky toffee pudding. The standard of the fish was good but the chips were not the best. They were not hot, and there were a lot of hard small chips in amongst the larger chips. Not really up to the high standard that we have encountered at Harry Ramsdens in the past.

    Restaurant had no record of my booking even though I had a confirmation email. Very busy so waited at least 15 minutes before order taken. However food was excellent and girl waiting tables in our area made remarkable efforts to get everyone seen to.

    We had haddock, chips, peas and accompanying sauces and it was very good. The meal and drinks were reasonably priced and the piano playing was very enjoyable but you would need to check with the restaurant for timings for when he is there.

    Restaurant was excellent, Unfortunately they had no record of our pre booking which we had done online but luckily they found room the 6 of us anyway - it could have ended quite a different experience. As it was it gets 5 stars from me. Good choice, great staff, lovely food, great views.

    This is a well appointed and good restaurant with sea views from many tables. The staff are well trained and with a very professional manager However the inability to tip via a credit card can only disadvantage the staff
