Fabulous staff and view
Beautiful setting overlooking the ocean. Food is good, service very good with friendly, accommodating staff.
Somebody has to sit next to the toilets
My vegetarian bake was unusual and I appreciated having an original dish instead of the sad old 'favourites' usually on a menu. Hans was our waiter - communicative, polite but engaging and offered advice and options.
very good fod and attentive service. we are proud to regard this as our "local"
Good food and service. Was a lovely day and sat outside in their garden.
The fixed price menu is one of the best I’ve had. Great choice & excellent value for such good food.
We've been a few times now and really like the pub setting though with really good quality food.
The staff were very helpful and obliging and I could not fault any of them.
I would say some of the fabric chairs outside need a clean or renewing. The roast dinners were good, slightly flavourless but this is better than too much salt which is often a case. The fish and chips were fine, much as you would expect from a pub lunch, we would go back.
Amazing view, great food.... we'll be back every year!
Had a very nice evening with family.
The only comment i'd make today (i've eaten here many times) is that tables near fire exit doors with metal tops are too small for 4 and that the area could be improved. We were sitting on top of doors and apart from sitting outside toilets are the worst tables. All tables and areas should have same ambience and a customer should not have to stipulate where to sit (or not).
Half term so unfortunately crying baby, so not the fault of the Cliffe.Very good service, attentive but not overpowering and food delicious.
Definitely recommend the desserts. They were amazing!
Nice place with friendly staff. Good food. The noise level is a bit high and with more people inside the music level goes up to add to the cacaphony.
Thoroughly enjoyed meals... apple crumble exceptional compared with v dissappointing sticky toffee pudding...small portion little flavour .. little sauce
Really great atmosphere, always busy with customers so best to book in advance. Fantastic service and knowledge on their menu’s. Love it here
We have been to the Cliff numerous times and as always the Cliff was perfect.
We have visited your restaurant nearly every week for the past year. Would love the menu too be changed if at all possible.
Best neighborhood pub in canford cliffs /sandbanks
Good food and service
We were there on Friday night , appetizers were quick but entrees took 55minutes
Would definitely recommend
The roast dinner was £16 and was just bulked out with mounds of huge lumps of undercooked carrots and parsnips. The beef was ropey too, clearly they scrimped on ingredients. I won’t be eating there again in a hurry!
I made the reservation through Open Table and when we got to the Cliff restaurant I was told that they do not accept reservations! What’s up with Open Table? It was my wife’s 60th birthday and dining in Laguna and watching a Sunset is her favorite thing to do. I am so disappointed in Open Table. I feel like I have been scammed. Don’t they have an obligation to make reservations with venues that allow and offer reservations? We had to wait 2 hours for a table👎
The Cliff always delivers great food in a great atmosphere
Frequent visitors to the Cliff because the atmosphere is good, food choice is wide and a Specials menu keeps it interesting.
Fantastic food, beautiful decor, friendly local vibes
We had an excellent meal on a busy Friday evening. The food was excellent and although busy we had a great table that was quieter then we had expected
Been quite a few times, but last visit dissapointing, drinks came with starter, same starters but husbands was a runny prawn pot, mine was set, sent back, my main came with chips not salad as ordered, y husbands main from specials, poor value for money
Frequent visitors, we love the food and always a great atmosphere. Specials menu usually has a dish worth trying
Great place good food always great service (Thanks Jamie Cameron Danny and all the others).
Never been before, food was good and plentiful. Service was first class. A good value Sunday lunch
We have been regulars at The Cliff for five years. It’s got a great ambience and the staff are always friendly and professional. Usually the food is of a good standard but our recent Sunday lunches have been disappointing. Also please Cliff enlarge your vegetarian menu, perhaps some more pasta dishes and salmon?
Always a good ambience any day or time. Menu choice is varied and specials are offered. We visit frequently but Opentable doesn't seem to work so often book direct
A visit at lunch time for a birthday treat. The menu had a good choice of dishes, and we had a very good lunch. The staff were first class, and we will be back.
Can only go in a group of four max otherwise seated in an area that is cold and draughty and lacks all atmosphere and bright light from the Kitchen.
As usual great meal and great staff (all the team).
We had a very nice evening there so much so that we returned the following day for my wife's birthday rather than going somewhere else.
I had a thoroughly enjoyable experience and will definitely return. The food and presentation was superb, the atmosphere and decor spot on. Our waiter was extremely efficient, my only criticism is we felt a little rushed as the waiter kept asking if we were ready to order. I expect he was trying to prevent orders backing up but it is sometimes difficult to break the conversation and make menu quick choices!
I will definitely return, it was really enjoyable.
Excellent sea bass on the specials menu. Good food all round and friendly efficient service.
Great service very attentive, it was a shame I had to send my starter back to the kitchen, not only was I disappointed by the size of the 3 tiny chicken pieces but they were overlooked & dry plus hard to cut, but presentation & sauce were spot on, but having said that I chose another starter & that was perfect.
On another visit we have sampled the roast dinner & that was top notch.
Excellent food and service. Will certainly go again.
Very good food and service upper market pricing but reasonable.
A very enjoyable experience if you are near or staying in the vicinity of Poole
It is well worth a visit.
