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.

    I booked a table for 3 on Friday for 8.30 on Saturday. When we arrived there was only one table free, which was right in-front of the door and next to a very loud singer.
    Even though I had booked well in advance no suitable table had been reserved for us and it was quite apparent other diners had refused to sit next to the door in-front of the singer. We left to eat at Pizza Express nearby and had a good meal in pleasant surroundings.

    Resturant was clean and service pleaseant and friendly.
    The Resturant was very quiet, only three tables occupied, late Sunday afternoon.
    Unfortunately the food was disappointing. Starters were home made, plentiful and tasty. We ate mainly fish main courses. The cod was dry, either overcooked or not very fresh.
    French Sauvignon blanc was good and reasonably priced.
    Sorry we will not be returning.

    My wife & I ate here on a Saturday afternoon from the lunch menu.
    I ordered steak & chips & for under £10 I had limited expectations.
    I was however extremely happy with what I received.
    I good sized steak cooked perfectly to my liking (I have paid twice as much in other restaurants for far less quality).
    My wife had seafood linguini which was full of fish & mussels & was also great value for money.
    The service was exceptional & I would definitely return there.

    Restaurant was not busy when we arrived. Staff were attentive and food arrived quickly. The food choice was slightly limited and different from the menu available from their website but the food was delicious and the service was excellent.
