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.

    Surprisingly assured cooking from a kitchen that knows how to bring out the best in the food it serves. Unfussy, but cleverly seasoned, with a notable ability to serve food that is cooked 'a point'. There were some deficiencies front of house and their wine list doesn't do justice to the quality of the cuisine, but these did not detract from a great experience.

    I had lamb shank which was lovely. Our two friends had the lamb special which they enjoyed a lot. My husband had fish and chips which was very disappointing. Service good and ambiance good.. would go again.

    My son & I had steak which was beautifully cooked.
    My husband had the fish & chips - it was a small piece of fish which looked a lot bigger than it was because it was surrounded by a batter which left a lot of air between the batter and the fish which was not really value for money.
    Very friendly staff - good personalities.

    Great vibe and buzz in nice part of town. Clean and well lit. Friendly team - perhaps needed another front of house as manager seemed over stretched. All dishes were well presented and well cooked except chunky chips - secret to taste is clean oil.

    Very good food and great service. Definitely recommended for a Saturday lunch.
