Description: We serve fabulous homemade food, locally sourced where we can. Our menu will change with availability of fresh ingredients and we offer a small select wine list and bar. We are set in an historic Grade II listed Tudor building which was once owned by a wealthy merchant, Thomas Byngley, who became Mayor of Poole in 1555, hence our name. The painted ceiling in our dining room is noteworthy and believed to have been painted c.1830.

We visited on a Sunday evening whilst overnight in Poole. We walked there through a deserted town centre to a cosy welcoming restaurant which was almost full.

The menu is not too extensive but certainly enough to keep most people satisfied.

We had 3 course with a bottle of wine which was all superb. The service was not rushed but attentive without being overbearing.

If you want good food and wine in a relaxed cosy atmosphere this place is highly recommended.

Perfect restaurant! Small, intimate and friendly. We were only in Poole for two nights last weekend but having enjoyed our meal so much the first night we returned again the second night. The menu is small but varied which we like as I think it guarantees good quality fresh produce. My scallops starter and monkfish main course were excellent. If we are ever in Poole again we will definitely be back. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.
