After reading so many good reviews I've been wanting to try here for a while so decided to book for my birthday. Well the reviews are definitely not lying, the food is soooo good!! I shared the macaroni balls for starter (good job we shared...as these are BIG balls), best balls I've tasted!! We then ordered the roast beef dip, cheese and bacon burger, meatloaf and kids chicken goujons for main - all delicious, particularly the roast beef dip which other members of my party kept stealing from me! We didn't really need dessert but it would be rude not to! Front of house was so friendly and welcoming which really makes a huge difference as well and you can tell they put their heart into the food. Hubby and I have already been trying to work out a date for our next visit and looking at the menu to decide what to order next time!More

Still sitting in the restaurant having eaten the most amazing Whiskey River Meatloaf and Roast Beef Dip. Wow, fab, amazing. The service from walking in was superb, the food great and you must also try the Caesar cocktail. Will definitely be back.

How wonderful. Thank you so much. Lots of people are put off by the clam element of the caesar but if you brave it we know its a treat. We look forward to having you back with us. Kay

We had read the reviews and were expecting good quality, tasty food. We were not disappointed! The standard of the food was excellent and did exactly what was wanted/expected. We had the beef dip and the bacon burger with poutine. Needless to say I now...want a jus dip with all main meals. Kay on front of house was so lovely and really made us feel at home. The whole vibe was awesome. This is a real gem of a restaurant and if I’m in the area again I will be visiting.More

OK, like most people reviewing here I had to try out the food and customer service that everyone was raving about. As a summary, it delivered both in buckets. Never before have I walked in to a restaurant to be greeted by genuinely smiling and...waving staff looking so pleased that we had all arrived. Never. It just doesn't happen, period. But here it does. How wonderful! Firstly, the place felt welcoming from the staff to the ambience and kicking tunes being played in the place. Becky (with the big hair and even bigger smile!) introduced herself to us and took us to our reserved table in the corner. Menus handed out, orders placed and food delivered without a problem. There were 5 of us and we tried some starters to share. Nachos, Poutine and Halloumi fries. All delicious Mains were varied too. Roast Beef Dip was my favourite. Garlic bread with beef? Who'd have thought and dipped in to the beef jus was just devine. 'What the Cluck?' was a feast for our daughter (so we helped her with it:)) The fried chicken was SO moist and packed flavour. I was expecting it to be dryer but it was perfect. The 2 other burgers were tasty and juicy. I was hoping they were not red in the middle as these are handmade burgers but they were cooked perfectly throughout. The last was the Pizza Dog which looked kinda weird but reports back were bang on. To be honest when the food came out it didn't look much compared to a standard meal out when you'd expect a whole plate covered in food but we could all just not eat it all (and I have a big appertite)! Triple cooked chips were indeed, as another reviewer pointed out, a meal in themselves. We so wanted to try the Key Lime pie after hearing the waitress describe how it looks and tastes, but there was no more room! It was a nice touch that as my son, who's 17th birthday it was, left the table for a bit of fresh air (he'd stuffed his face) with his girlfriend, Becky came over and had a chat about the 'love birds', thank you Becky :) Interestingly, the place was not heaving with people even though the board outside said fully booked but one of the owners explained that on the night with limited people in the kitchen they wanted to ensure that the food coming out was top notch and that they were not just throwing it out in volume. Mission accomplished we all thought! Now prices. Its not the cheapest burger in town at around £16 but its the tastiest and if flavour is your thing, I'd recommend this place in a heartbeat. Would I come here again? I truly would. If I was more local, I'd have a seat with my name on it. Staff/owner were excellent from the smiles and waves at the start of our visit to the good nights at the end of it. Tips: Dont wear anything tight (you may lose a button at the end of the night!). Smile and be polite. You get back what you put in!More

We were greeted by a really friendly smile and asked where we would like to sit, the service throughout was exemplary. The food was spot on, very tasty and very very filling - if you want a pudding don’t even think about a starter

My husband and I visited this restaurant as our last meal during our Bournemouth visit. Both service and food were amazing. The host was a great fun added to the overall experience. This is definitely a MUST TRY restaurant if you are living locally or...visiting Bournemouth. Shame that we live in London and I feel that we need more independent restaurants like this one. Following were what we ordered: * Customised non-alcoholic cocktail: I have been trying to stay away from alcohol due to medical reasons and often find my options limited. The host was very accommodating to my request. The drink served was definitely one of the best cocktails I ever had ( I am not a cocktail fan normally so I am kind of picky). * Seafood Chowder: Really really really good. Wasn’t sure about the bread until I had the first bite. It’s soft and perfect for dipping. I had various claim chowders in San Fran and can honestly say that the chowder at Moose Kitchen is just as good. * Meatloaf: A little too sweet for me but my husband loves it. This dish is perfect for Hunter’s Chicken fans. * Mac & Cheese balls: They are giant and so moist inside. It would be great if the restaurant can consider offering a tasting menu (small portion varieties) as there are so many other dishes I’d like to try. Final note: Prepared to be stuffed and the portions were generous! :)))More
