2 for 1 at Harbour View Restaurant @ Thistle Poole

Poole is a friendly, easy-going seaside town, with its traditional Quay still very much at its heart. And that’s where you’ll find Thistle Poole Hotel, offering superb views over one of the world’s largest natural harbours, Brownsea Island and the Purbeck hills beyond.

At Thistle Poole you have a choice of dining right through the day and on into the night.

The newly redecorated Harbour View Restaurant offers a choice of dishes from home cooked favourites to light bites and bistro classics in comfortable surroundings.

They also keep an extensive cellar of classic and New World wines to compliment your meal.

The restaurant’s 1st floor, waterside location provides panoramic views across the bay, making it the perfect place for a special meal or celebration.

    Excellent food at a reasonable price in a restaurant with a wonderful view over Poole Harbour.The steak and salmon we had were well presented ,well cooked and very tasty and the starters and sweets were of a good choice and good value.No problems with food ,views or using tastecard as we booked in advance.We have a slight moan at the service because after being seated we had to then wait some time, and then ask for the menus but once we had ordered service was good .We will be visiting here again.

  • " I stopped at this hotel and noticed the taste card sign on the door so I went in and asked if I could use mine only to be told that I needed to book 24hrs in advance,I asked him to check as it is normally only an hour and after a visit to the kitchen again he came back with the same answer but with the extra line that they had told him to tell me to check the terms and conditions.
    My ratings are on the experience not the food and just a warning to all who stay here to book in advance of arriving "
