    Delicious from start to finish. Starters of mussels and Queen scallops followed by Cod with squid ragu and pork belly. Complimentary sour dough bread with whipped butter was also tasty. Will definitely be back.

    Very pleasant restaurant serving lovely food. On the slightly expensive side but the food was top quality and the views from the upstairs restaurant area are very pleasant. I don't mind paying higher prices for good quality food, but the wine prices were a joke. We would think twice about returning to this restaurant as we enjoy wine with food but refuse to be badly overcharged.

    We visited Sandbanks for the first time last week having recently been blown away by The Newport and being regular customers at the Newport Bakery. We are sad to say that we were both extremely underwhelmed. The staff were friendly however the service was not to the standard I would expect. Meals were brought to the wrong table, no cutlery given inbetween courses and a delay in drinks being served. Our food was a let down. My husband ordered the scallops to start with but the size of them was laughable, comparable to a five pence piece. Our mains - steak and fish were delicious and the portion size very good however the deserts were underwhelming. We had the creme brulle which my husband said was very basic and I had the cinnamon Bon however there was not much taste to this. Also suggestion to serve this with a fork and knife as it cannot be eaten with a spoon due to how tough the pastry was. I heard the table next to us complain of the same. I would also suggest some music in the background as when we went in it was very quiet and almost awkward due to the proximity to the table next to you and the silent atmosphere. Overall we were both very disappointed in this having had very high expectations. I wouldn’t rush back.

    Second visit to this restaurant and it did not disappoint. Friendly and welcoming staff, good range on menu. Almost worth visiting just for the Sourdough!! Fantastic pasta and a burger. Portion size was so good that we had to pass on the desserts unfortunately. Will be sure to return.

    I have been to Sandbanks twice, on the first occasion the food and service was excellent, but the restaurant was very quiet. Last night the restaurant was busy and the service was poor. We had viewed the menu online before booking but the menu on the night was different and not what we had anticipated. The starter arrived promptly but for the main dish our fries were delayed, arriving as we were finishing the meal, apologies were made but no effort was made to recompense this which obviously spoiled the meal a bit. We waited a long time for the desert to arrive, and were almost at the point of saying to forget it and just leave. We would not go back as rather expensive for a hit and miss experience.

    The was our first visit to Sandbanks since it changed hands from the Tayberry and we were most disappointed to walk in and see that there is still no ambiance or vibe at all In the downstairs room. The lighting was very bright like a pub at closing time and staring at your reflection in a cold, black window while passers by stare in, does not make far a warm experience. Blinds or curtains and better use of the dimmer switch could easily change that. The focaccia and other starters were delicious which got us excited for the main courses. It was nice to see haggis included in fine-dining dishes and not just stuffed into a chicken breast. Our mains were hit-and-miss. Where the duo of pork was sublime and delivered a most delicious carrot, the lasagne was hugely underwhelming. One layer of pasta was burnt and inedible and the filling lacked any depth of flavour or unctuousness. I took a risk choosing this, hoping that at £22 it would be very special. Better to stay home and make your own. Upon paying we were frustrated to find out that you can't tip the staff if you pay by card. Not very valuing for their staff who were most friendly and helpful.

    Overall a good night but we had several issues - waiter brought wrong wine, one starter was forgotten until we asked again for it, mussels were cold. We thought there were insufficient waiters. They seemed to be doing their best, and were polite and apologetic. To compensate, we were not charged for the wine.

    We visited the restaurant on a very quiet and cold Thursday evening. Because it was very quiet, the atmosphere was subdued and the lighting was not conducive to creating a warm atmosphere. However, the service and the quality of the food were both excellent. We will definitely visit again.

    Absolutely beautiful food. So tasty and very satisfying. Great choices and very generous portions. The staff were lovely. The setting is very nice. Only draw back is we felt it was very cold which in turn made us feel a little uncomfortable. Highly recommend to anyone who loves classy, tasteful flavours

    I’ve been really looking forward to my visit to Sandbanks as I love The Newport and the Newport Bakeries. The bread and butter is always a winner, but was was warm on the outside and cold on the inside. I had a burger which looked great but the actual burger was underwhelming and looked like it was mass produced. Overall, I felt that it was trying and charging to be more than it could muster.
