There’s a wonderful sense of tradition to the setting of our elegant restaurant, which was established in 1947. The menu though, is modern and fresh – combining the best of local, seasonal ingredients with Continental influences and Frederick’s specialities. 

We’re proud of our hard-won AA Rosette. Our head chef and kitchen brigade work exceptionally hard to produce fine food and an ambience to make lunch or dinner in Frederick’s one of the most enjoyable aspects of your stay in Bournemouth.

Frederick’s is as popular with local people as with hotel guests – it’s the ideal restaurant for a special occasion such as a birthday or anniversary.

Please note, a formal dress code does apply in Frederick’s restaurant. Quick bites and bar snacks are available in the lounges and there is 24-hour room service including family menus if you prefer to eat in your room. 

Sunday lunch at the Carlton

The Frederick’s Sunday lunch is the stuff of legend – with a wide range of dishes including, of course, traditional roasts and Yorkshire pudding. The menu includes vegetarian options, delicious desserts and one of the finest cheese plates in Dorset 

Afternoon tea overlooking the sea 

Our ‘Afternoon Tea by the Sea’ includes finger sandwiches, home-made scones, clotted cream and strawberry jam as you’d expect, plus ice cream in a cone, candy floss, marshmallow, cola cubes and nougatine – totally unique, and as you can imagine very popular with families.

We also serve the more traditional variety of afternoon tea. Whichever you choose, the treat is in the location just as much as the mouth-watering menu – on the terrace or in the orangery, with wonderful views of the ocean.

Guest Reviews

First class from start to finish

Smooth check in and a really spacious and comfortable room. A call ten minutes after I arrived from reception to ask if all was well – you could not ask for more. Breakfast was very good quality – and the ultimate service touch – the really helpful waiter chased outside with the tablets I had left on the table!
