With a rich culinary heritage as a farmhouse, The Curlew near Bournemouth continues to offer traditional British pub cuisine with a welcoming rustic appearance. It features classic Victorian brick-work, a charming hearth-fire and al fresco outdoor seating, which enjoys great views around its secluded country location.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Curlew menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Curlew ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Curlew is just 14 minutes’ drive from Bournemouth Train Station.

    The staff were very welcoming and friendly and the pub was warm and noisy.Service was also very good . WE enjoyed the meal, though the vegetables were a little disappointing and the roast potatoes were not crisp. We would however go again.

    Food was excellent as it usually is. Tried the starters sharing platter. Lovely. Hubby had the beef rib and I had fish. Good sized portions and lovely food. Some vegetables would have been nice. Had dessert tasting platter. Childrens sized portions of four desserts. OMG full to bursting. The 'Eton mess' type dessert was overly sweet but the chocolate brownie was awesome.
