"Great Place For A Long Lunch"

Went for a long lunch with an old friend.The lunch menu is excellent and very good value. We were chatting and drinking late into the afternoon and the staff were setting up for an evening function around us. They made us feel very comfortable and we were able to enjoy our long late lunch without feeling rushed. This place is especially good value if you sign up to the loyalty card scheme. I will go back!!!

“Excellent Birthday”

I should like to give appreciative thanks to you and members of your management and staff who contributed to the preparation and service of the most excellent birthday celebratory lunch my family was served at Patrick’s Restaurant yesterday. From the moment we were welcomed with a glass of bubbly, through to our departure, we were treated magnificently. It can be a challenge to serve a group as large as twelve, and your team performed admirably. Each of our dishes were prepared to a high standard, and presented and served in a caring manner, with your staff ensuring that our needs were met as they arose. The birthday surprise dessert was especially appreciated by my wife. We enjoyed a delightful experience, made the more so by team professionalism, and I will look forward to my next visit with much pleasure. Patrick's

“Wonderful Birthday”

My son and girlfriend booked this restaurant for my birthday. Everything was fabulous. The atmosphere was super. The service was excellent and would like to make a commendation for the waitress who served us Izzie. Her service with a smile was beyond measure and made my birthday even more wonderful please pass my sincere gratitude to her. After she finished her shift the other waitresses carried on the good work. I live in London and would recommend this place to anyone visting Bournemouth. I had the soup of the day which was leek and potato with freshly baked bread. The soup was nice and creamy. My main meal was the mixed grill. Everything was perfectly cooked and succulent The service was super. Thank you for making my evening memorable. Patrick's


Lovely relaxed atmosphere, friendly efficient service. The food was superb although the restaurant was busy everything was served hot and tasted fresh. I will recommend this establishment to everyone. Patrick's

“Fantastic Brilliant Evening”

Went to an evening when The Blues Brothers were the entertainment. It was a great atmosphere and everything was just splendid. Here’s my opinion of my own courses: 1) Piri Piri chicken wings with blue cheese dip VERDICT: Perfect starter, full of flavour and a great appetiser for the main course 2) Roast pork belly with an apple and herb crust, honey roast carrots, mash and red wine jus VERDICT: WOW! Probably the best carrots I have ever tasted in my life. Seriously! The pork belly was amazing, succulent and extremely tasty. Real mash potato, not ricered to oblivion. Proper mash potato. 3) Selection of ice cream VERDICT: Lovely light finish with vanilla, strawberry and chocolate ice cream. Balanced my other 2 courses perfectly. It was not sweet and sickly just lovely flavoured ice cream. Simple and just right. All the other menu options looked great too, especially the SnickerBockerGlory desert, which I will look for next time. The Peroni beer was refreshing and a very fine Spanish tempranillo, accompanied the meal. Plaudits to the kitchen in achieving a fine dining standard. Friendly, efficient, graceful service was achieved throughout. Patrick deserves a special mention because he is in perpetual motion and was everywhere all night making sure everything was perfect. It was just a magical night where everything just clicked. Patrick's

“A Most Enjoyable Evening”

We had our company Xmas meal here ( in about March) 6 couples. We were all impressed with the Quality of our meals. A most enjoyable evening. A very good friendly service from all Staff. Patrick's

Fantastic bar. Lovely food great staff can't wait to go back. Patrick's

“Food To Die For”

Have been several times and every time the service we have received has been excellent, the food is to die for and the whole atmosphere is very welcoming. Patrick's

“Lovely Meal”

Just had a lovely meal. A couple of us chose the specials and we were not let down. Great service. Would definitely go again. Patrick's

“Perfect Party”

I was part of a large party last night and wanted to say that the food was delicious and the service very good. Thank you so much I hope to return again soon. Patrick's

“Food and drink went like clockwork and very professional“

Just a quick line to say thanks very much for the organisation of the food and drink went like clockwork and very professional please thank all your staff involved very much appreciated. Patrick's

“Consistently Great Food & Always Friendly Staff”

I have been coming here for years and the reason is simple, Patrick and his team make you feel welcome and that nothing is too much trouble. The food is always superb and the Chefs, Chris & Nick always accommodate our annoying requests. Its more or less become our default local eat out because of this. The menu changes fairly regularly and they are happy to make changes where possible. There is something for everyone and always a few specials on the board too. Look out for tribute nights they have once in a while as they get fully booked and take up the entire restaurant area. On a Friday and Saturday night it gets pretty lively in the bar area and there's usually a DJ on the decks. If you haven't already, give Patricks a go as I'm confident you will like it and go back again and again. Patrick's

“Perfect Pat's”  

8 of us met at Patricks, to get a bite to eat, before seeing a concert at Mr Kyp's around the corner. Despite ordering 7 different main courses the food was promptly served and thoroughly enjoyed by the whole group. I think it is a real challenge serving varying dishes all at the same time and maintaining the quality... Well done Patrick's... we will be back! Patrick's


This Restaurant & Bar is the most wonderful and inexpensive place to eat; my wife and I had a wonderful lunch there and we also had a great time whilst eating. Patrick's

“Lovely atmosphere and super food”

The trout tart starter was superb. The mains we had were the chicken with a very tasty sauce and the belly pork with beetroot mash. Both well presented and good portions. The dessert we shared was the fried brownie! Weird but lovely taste. Glad we shared it... We often have lunch here but been ages since we have had an evening meal. We return again soon.Patrick's
