Step inside this charming restaurant on Charminster Road in Boscombe and you’ll instantly feel at home with its traditional decor, cosy ambience and warm and friendly service, and even more so when you taste the delicious and hearty cuisine served up. Start off with some homemade chicken liver pate or the garlic mushrooms, before moving on to dishes like the roast pork fillet stuffed with apple, ginger & sage and served with a creamy calvados sauce or the grilled dover sole dressed with fresh asparagus drizzled with a lemon and butter sauce. With choices to suit all tastes and dietary requirements, Bournemouth's Bates Restaurant is the ideal location no matter if it is for a big, group dinner, or an intimate date. To guarantee a table, making a reservation in advance is recommended.
We had a really good meal prepared and served to the highest standard. The staff are always most welcoming and it is a please to dine at Bates.
I have always said one day I would visit this restaurant and as I wanted to say Thank You to special friends, this was where I wanted to take them. Both the setting/food and service was excellent. We will visit again in the future.
Friendly and attentive staff - food presented well and tasted fantastic. An amazing selection of desserts - we will definitely be going back! A hidden gem.
