Eat and drink

There’s a wonderful sense of occasion to the setting in Fredericks restaurant overlooking the shimmering ocean. Our food is comforting, good quallity, cooked well and using Best of British ingredients. Just like our outlook, we're not stuffy, our restaurant is a place for you to relax and our service is always charming and friendly. 

If you're holidaying in Bournemouth with your family, extended family or just your partner, we think we've got a varied choice of options for you to dine from.  Healthy superfood salads or superstacked burgers from the restaurant menu - using Red Tractor 28-day aged steaks no less. Alternatively a taste of the Continent with a Moroccan lamb tagine or Mezzaluna pasta. And afterwards, our desserts are a big hit, we strongly recommend the chocolate tart or the caramel ice cream sundae - divine. Our newly opened pizza ovens, creating autentic Italian pizzas, are certainly a hit with families down by the outdoor pool where you can also enjoy a drink or an ice cream too. 

If you're staying with us on business, there are plenty of corners to tuck yourself away in and superfast free WiFi to make sure you can still catch-up with emails. Grab a nibble or our infamous Curious fish and chips and watch the latest sporting action from BT Sport.  

And when the sun is shining, whether you're visiting for work or pleasure, there's no better place than enjoying your meal al fresco and watching the sun dip down over the ocean.  You can enjoy free WiFi on the terrace too!

We also offer a fabulous Afternoon Tea by The Sea with finger sandwiches, home made scones with clotted cream and jam. And families fear not. We never forget our younger guests. There are a variety of creative additions for the junior palate from ice cream in a cone and marshmallows to candy floss and cola cubes.

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!
