Locally sourced excellent food in a beautiful Studland Bay setting overlooking the sea with its own kitchen garden. A great informal option in the Summer are the Pizzas and Salads outside taking in the magnificent views. Rather than take the car hop on the number 50 open top Breezer on Pinewood road ( close to the house) and take in Canford Cliffs Sandbanks and Studland Beaches before stepping off close to the restaurant near Studland Stables.

Book the harbour side restaurant ( rather than the bar area) for a lovely atmosphere. I would recommend the weekday set lunch menu which represents much better value. The children’s menu is outstanding.

Family Favourites

These are my family’s go to restaurants in the area.
The fish is so fresh here with loads of daily specials and reasonably priced. The Quayside at Poole Old Town where the restaurant is located is worth a visit too. The rockfish.co.uk

This gastro pub has just had a major refurb. Very popular with the locals and deservedly so. Just a short drive in nearby Canford Cliffs with plenty of parking.

If you love burgers and/or cocktails this does both well with a great atmosphere. More suitable for a value night out with the kids or a group rather than intimate dining, they do a great Tuesday night 2 for £12 on excellent burgers and similar on Friday for their decadent range of cocktails. Located a mile away in lovely Westbourne you can stroll there and back.

This has a legendary reputation and queues to match so you can guarantee freshness. I wouldn’t recommend eating in though it is ideal for an easy supper at home after a day at the beach while watching the sky turn pink over the sea. Ring ahead or book takeout online. Portion sizes are generous so we often go for the light bite/mini meal.

Some of the best Japanese food we have tasted. For a special occasion the chef will come to the house to cook for you. This is another good take out option as the views from our dining table beat the restaurant!

We love this restaurant’s relaxed vibe. Located in Parkstone Marina it is a fantastic place to watch the changing light with drinks and fresh seafood. In peak season they have a resident DJ. Note: Parking is for berth holders only but there is on street parking on the road leading up to it. Turks lane Poole BH14 8EW

Vegan heaven. We aren’t Vegan but this place could easily convert us. Simply delicious food. We have only visited at lunchtime where there is no menu just the days offerings served in a wholesome bowl of delicious goodness. ( very nice brownies too). Good lunch stop after a morning in Westbourne.

This needs advance booking as is a locals favourite. With great choice of wine at good prices and superb quality cheese and meat boards ( plus Vegan option) it is fantastic for a group night out. Renoufs also has a specialist deli in the Victorian arcade which I would highly recommend if you are into your cheese and cured meats.

This is where we buy our bread and morning croissants (Almond sells out early - you can preorder). We often go for breakfast and my wife loves their homemade jam and daily quiche special.

With such amazing views from the house and garden sometimes it is nice to eat in. Cook makes this effortless. If you haven’t shopped there before make the most of the Westbourne location as their frozen range is brilliant, Thai and Indian curries are excellent, and their brownies are a particular favourite with my daughters.

If you love afternoon tea, you’ll struggle to find nicer scones (better here than the National Trust). Lovely vintage decor. Good for a rainy day. Another great place in Westbourne village ( where you can’t really go wrong for a bite to eat!)
