We had a great meal here. The service was excellent and the staff were charming. Of course it goes without saying that the food was excellent too.
Friendly staff and huge portions in a pleasant setting. We had a good night out whildt watching the evening view over Swanage bay. Take an appetite to this bistro. you can also drop in for a coffee or lunch during the day.
Service good, food average, glasses dirty, setting good, but not somewhere we’d go back to. One of the waitresses didn’t know who had ordered what.
Had a really great meal here on Saturday. Really tasty cheese fondue to start with made with local cheeses - plenty of bread, easily enough for the two of us. We then had Sea Bass which was cooked perfectly with a very tasty Thai style sauce. Finished off with Christmas Pud ! The food and service were both great. I would recommend a visit.
Our son gave us a group on voucher to go there, they refused to accept it saying they stopped dealing with group on 3 months ago, the vouchers date it expired a week after our visit and it was bought 4 months ago when they were still dealing with them, didn't even say sorry ...
Very disappointing - I'd booked a table but when I arrived he had to check they were serving food! Sandwich and jacket potato available and specials but when order was placed they didn't have the ingredients. It was also dirty with 2 washing machines in the restaurant area! However great view!
The food was good, but they had to check what we had ordered even though written down. The place fillets were a fillet, not two or more so we were either not given enough or they need to change the description. the staff could do with some customer service training. The restaurant is definitely not as good as it used to be.
It has a been a while since we last visited and we remember it as being a great buzzing place but it wasn't all that busy for a Saturday night and the food was ok.
The food was good, but the service was terrible. The staff were disorganised and not coping. Nobody seemed to know what they were doing. It took over an hour to get our food
My 53rd Birthday and the third occasion that i have been to the Bull and Boat when staying in Swanage. However, this will me my last after a disappointing experience. I booked the tab;e well in advance and made the Bull and Boat aware that my mother was gluten free, but they struggled to cater for this. My meal was unsatisfactory and when I complained, staff could only say sorry and no attempt to knock anything off the bill. Poor meal experience.
