Summary

Bang on the beach and with prime views of Poole Bay (especially from the upstairs terrace bar), this 1930s gastropub was once home to the UK’s first solarium; these days it turns out “good food that’s value for money” (a feature “not always associated with Sandbanks” just up the road).

Summary

“Right on the beach” and with “fabulous views” of the surf, this converted art deco gastropub offers “good food at a reasonable price”… especially “considering this is practically Sandbanks”.

Summary

“Good food and value for money” are “not always associated with Sandbanks” – but, happily, this “glass box on the beach”, reputed for its Sunday breakfast, is one exception.
