Last Sunday we decided to finally visit The Larder House in Southbourne. We’d heard good things about it and were craving a nice, restaurant roast dinner. After booking a table for 5.30pm and managing to find a parking spot on the road, close to the restaurant, we were not disappointed!
We were pleasantly surprised to find it a very family and child friendly place, there were families with young children, a couple with a young baby, and us – a couple with a toddler who needed both monkey toys to come to dinner! The staff were very friendly and we appreciated how nice they were to Rex, even though he was mistaken for a girl by one waitress.
The food was really good with big portions. I had the half roast chicken which was excellent and Michelle had the beef. There were a couple of moments of food envy as a fish sharing platter and other dishes walked past for other tables. The menus look worth going back for and exploring. Rex enjoyed some of the sharing bread and a mixture of both our roasts.
The restaurant has a great style and has some really nice decor touches. When the bill was presented in an empty Camembert box, I couldn’t help but smile.
This is definitely a place to come back to, and although I’m now on the hunt for other good places to get a Sunday roast in Dorset, I have a feeling we will be returning here often.
