A taste of Bournemouth

Quality, fresh and local

We offer a refectory and student bar on campus, but if you do want to venture out to sample the food scene, there’s a great variety. Just a 15-minute walk from campus is the popular Ludo Lounge, a charming bar offering tasty breakfasts and reasonably priced food. Partnering lounges can be found in Winton, Christchurch and Westbourne for those who want to shake it up. Throw a little fun into your lunch break at Coffee & Dice, mixing great board games with excellent coffee. Little Pickle Deli Café is another charming spot offering tea and cake just like your granny used to make.

Vegetarian and Vegan hotspots can be found at PURE Cuisine in Christchurch, Amala Food in Westbourne, Sweet Greens Organic Vegan Kitchen in Charminster, and Mad Cucumber in Bournemouth’s Triangle. For those of you wanting to eat clean, satisfyingly healthy meals can be found at The Skinny Kitchen.

The local area is well populated with restaurants that won’t burn a hole in your pocket. Southbourne’s Brewhouse and Kitchen combines the dining and microbrewery experience, with well-matched beers and an appetising menu. Heading over to Christchurch Quay, take in the evening sunset over the water as you dine at the Boathouse. This unique location offers alfresco dining or cosy indoor areas to watch the world go by.

Venturing towards the beach and Boscombe Pier, Urban Reef sits on the promenade and offers locally sourced seasonal food in a fun setting. It’s also the perfect place to grab a coffee and people-watch if that’s your thing.

For those who want to experience the luxury dining experience, NEO is a classy venue with spectacular views of the seafront and gardens. Vesuvio combines Italian cuisine with an indulgent atmosphere, located a few steps from the beach at Alum Chine.
