The Orchid Hotel, 34 Gervis Road, Bournemouth, BH1 3DH

Owner's description

Seating up to 40 diners in sophisticated but unfussy comfort, the vibe is laid-back and effortlessly informal. Open seven days a week for dinner from 6.00 to 9.30  it’s all about taking your time to savour the simple joys of AA Rosette food from Head Chef Eddie Lopes and his talented team.

Relax over a pre- or post-prandial glass or two in our adjoining lobby lounge. Sensibly priced, elegantly informal and fabulously full-flavoured, No. 34 puts great food back where it belongs – front and centre stage.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
