In quirky Westbourne, The Libertine offers homely British classics and an impressive bar stock. The pride of The Libertine, the outdoor Forge is a sheltered brick area filled with reclaimed furniture and a crackling wood burner.
Committed to working with the best suppliers, The Libertine in Westbourne is renowned for its charcoal-grilled steaks, delicious sharing platters and innovative puddings. From the varied Libertine menu, sample marinated duck skewers with cooling cucumber yoghurt, seafood and chorizo linguine, or the coriander lamb burger.
A comforting children’s menu offers dishes like mac ‘n’ cheese or bread hake, while experimental dessert flavours include chocolate and chilli praline torte, or plum & damson soup with vanilla panna cotta. A renowned wine cellar at Libertine features fine vintages, and locally-brewed ales are pulled at the bar.
In the dining room, vintage light fittings cast a subtle glow across the brilliant brass bar, rich caramel leather and hefty wooden furnishings. The Libertine bar is a 5-minute drive from central Bournemouth and the coast.

The Libertine is a fantastic place to both dine and drink. The steaks ands pizzas are very good and the staff are extremely friendly.

My companions all enjoyed their meals despite being told that at least 6 items from the menu were not available. However, I was disappointed that my choice of a vegan pizza was not available especially as this was after the waitress had taken my order.

The decor of the pub is nice, making it feel more like a nice restaurant. Service was prompt and friendly and the food we had was delicious. I strongly recommend the Scotch and chorizo egg starter!

The restaurant is a pleasant experience. The service was excellent. The young lady who took care of us was discreet, helpful and hard working with a smile. The food was very good although the sides they offered were ridiculous in size. When you offer mushrooms with a £54 chateaubriand for two, you should get more than one per person. Overall we had a nice time and we will definitely come back for more.

Regular diner at the Libertine with family and friends. Staff very friendly and food is always good (especially their pizza's) Service is always good. Dining room is a good environment for various sized groups or more intimate meals. No real criticism here, but each time we have opted for the 2 for 1 pizza deal we have had to query the bill, as we have always been charged full price! It has always been remedied without fuss, but seems to happen every time.

Incredible food, great service, couldn’t ask for more. The sharing dessert was a great finish to the evening

This is a good local pub with a decent restaurant that specialises in steaks (and pizzas). We go quite regularly and it never disappoints.What is consistent is the service which is always friendly and sociable. It's a great place to relax in.

Usually really good food at the libertine with friendly and polite staff. Unfortunately 2 of our steaks were cooked wrong but were taken away and a new one brought out which was perfect. They also do a brilliant Sunday roast and usually have some good offers on but all of these stop for December unfortunately for us
