North Bournemouth......Pub (or similar) lunch advice please.

Next Saturday I'll be driving from Lymington to the northwest edge of Bournemouth to watch a school rugby match kick off at 2:30. Does anyone have a suggestion for a pre-match lunch please?

Had a bit of a disaster doing the same thing in Taunton a couple of weeks back, without asking for advice. Mistake.

  1. The Good Food Guide mentions The Print Room as a 'buzzy bar and bistro.' They're open from breakfast onwards.

    The GF blurb makes it sound a bit more casual than the website looks....

      Heard a rumour print room had shut, maybe wrong, but worth a call first possibly?

        Thank you both, and it looks nice, but probably too central for me. I think I need a decent pub with a car park. Google Earth shows the Fox & Hounds near Stapehill, which looks fine, unless anyone knows otherwise?

          Long, long time since I was a regular around there but I do have a fond memory of The Barley Mow Inn at Colehill (near Wimborne) - I suspect it may have changed quite a lot.
