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.
A great atmosphere with just the right volume of background music. The food was exceptionally good and portions of both meat and vegetables were very generous. Absolutely no room for the luscious looking desserts on display 🙁 I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant.
Excellent service, choice of menu, and tasty traditional English luncheon as usual from this my favourite local restaurant, which I have recommended to many friends who have also been pleased there.
The meal was excellent as always. The staff are friendly and pleasant. The restaurant has a very pleasant ambience. All very enjoyable, We'll be booking again!
