LOCAL & SEASONAL A LA CARTE RESTAURANT, OVERLOOKING THE SEA

A truly stunning triple-height space with beautiful views over Boscombe bay

Our team of passionate chefs take their inspiration from the seasons and our predominantly locally available produce and then add a twist from their love of travel and international cuisine. Simple, fresh ingredients cooked well and presented with TLC. It’s not rocket science, but it is good.

OUR AMBIENCE IS A BLEND OF INFORMALITY AND QUALITY. SUITS ARE NOT REQUIRED, THOUGH OF COURSE ARE WELCOME. ESSENTIAL IS A GREAT APPRECIATION OF THE HORIZON, THE SKY, THE SAND, THE SEA AND LUNGS FULL OF FRESH SALTY AIR.
