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.
