With a menu which combines modern British dishes with Mediterranean influence, The Cliff Poole is a refurbished pub & restaurant close to the seaside in Poole. With dark leather sofas, distressed-wood tables and sea-themed art adorning its walls, this gastro pub is a homey retreat full of cosy corners to enjoy a traditional Sunday roast.
With chefs given the opportunity to train at cookery schools in Spain and Italy, The Cliff Poole menu features modern signature recipes made using the finest ingredients. As well as creative daily-changing specials, favourites include king prawn, crab and chorizo linguine, or spit-roasted chicken with lemon & garlic confit. A kids’ menu and Sunday roasts also feature, and desserts include rich vanilla and chocolate gelato with home-baked cookies.
The result of a treasured partnership with Rothschild wine merchants, the cellar showcases many fine wines, while token real ales and premium spirits are found at The Cliff Poole bar. Nostalgic British nibbles and sharing platters bursting with international flavours offer more laidback dining.
Tucked away beside Sandbanks beach, The Cliff Poole in Dorset is a 6-minute drive from Branksome Rail Station.

I came here with my mother for Sunday lunch. The service and the food were both excellent.

We aLways love the atmosphere at The Cliff and the service is excellent. Usually the food is too but this time both the duck and sword fish were over cooked. It won't stop us going back though! It is usually five stars but on this occasion four.

Salmon was fabulous - cooked to perfection
Cheese Soufflé was lovely but far too small for a main course - too much celeriac as a side dish to bulk out
(((** 2 May 2016 by David from Poole, United Kingdom
Nice atmosphere, tasty food, portion size on sticky platter not so generous as it used to be
