Restaurant description

A stylish bistro in the heart of the town, Loch & Quay Christchurch is committed to local produce. The menu of sharing platters, fresh fish favourites and hearty grill dishes is served in the restaurant’s bright, laidback dining area.

By day, the Loch & Quay menu offers classic brunch dishes, wraps and sharing boards, alongside the likes of goats’ cheese and beetroot tart and beer-battered fish and chips. Come the evening, discover venison steak with rosemary dauphinoise, grilled lemon thyme salmon with seafood risotto and sweet chilli dressing, or slow-braised lamb shanks served with minted mashed potatoes, chickpeas and yoghurt cucumber dip. From the grill, try the homemade beef burger in a brioche bun, or the lemon and herb-marinated rump steak with hand-cut triple-cooked chips and garlic-roasted flat mushrooms topped with parmesan.

Desserts at Loch & Quay restaurant are also packed with flavour. Try the enticing chocolate brownie with pistachio crumb and vanilla ice cream, or the vanilla, pear and star anise tatin with toffee sauce.

Loch & Quay in Dorset sits in the centre of town, yards from Christchurch Castle.

    We booked the restaurant not knowing that there was a fixed menu for Valentines evening, but we didn’t mind as the food was really good. We have decided that we will return another evening to try the full menu

    Very nice food, however we felt that both the food and drink menu was fairly limited and could be better with a little more choice!

    The restaurant looked inviting as there were welcoming and festive looking decorations. The staff were attentive and paid good attention to our order. There was a lovely buzz of conversation as an ambience, and the food was good especially the butternut squash soup ( I love soup and am frequently let down by my experience in restaurants ) Our family had a lovely outing for my husband's birthday.
