Bournemouth - Upscale Restaurant for Client Dinner

  • 5

My husband does a lot of business with a US bank with offices in Bournemouth, and wants to travel there in December to take them out for a pre-Christmas thank you dinner. Price not an issue, but excellent food and ambiance/room is important. I did a quick search on the board and came up with a recommendation for this place:


Wondering if there are any options in Bournemouth itself. I found this place just by googling - wonder if any one has heard of it/tried it?


TIA from a Manhattan 'Hound.

      Thank you - I'll look into it - I appreciate your help.

    2. If the group is willing to travel just a bit, there's a good restaurant in the New Forest. It's called The Thatched Cottage and has food we enjoyed quite a bit. The website has the menu and prices - pretty reasonable, especially for lunch.


      1. Hello,

        I am from Bournemouth and haven’t heard about these Restaurants. A great option would be the <a href="http://www.highcliffgrill.co.uk" target="_blank"> Highcliff Grill Restaurant </a> at the Bournemouth Highcliff Marriott Hotel. They also have a superb private dining room, the Signature Room.
