July 2015 We visit Swanage every year and usually have 2-3 meals at the upstairs Mowlem restaurant during our stay. This has now changed. I would not recommend the place to anyone. We were taken to our table at approximately 8.30 pm, placed an order which took over 40 minutes to arrived (yes 9.10 pm -others being served around us - there was nothing ordered that warranted this length of time cooking) - my son had Penne Arrabatia - not a single piece of penne pasta in the bowl and when he had eaten it the bowl had a layer of oil at the bottom.My meal arrived last, I chose the Salmon with vegetables (£14.95) it arrived the vegetables were disgusting and dried out and colourless, apparently from the carvery server - how long does it take for mash potato to dry out? celeriac which I thought was cauliflower, red cabbage (I presume); rock hard honeyed parsnips (two about 3 cm long) and mashed carrot (I think) the size of the portions were also an insult, somewhere between a teaspoon and dessert spoon.The cook (definitely not a chef) advised that he had selected the vegetables himself, so lord knows what the peas or other green vegetables looked like. He also disagreed about his parsnips mentioned earlier and picked my knife and fork and tried to cut through them above me. The cook then said he would get me another plate but would take 10 minutes, I declined as I am not sure what would have come back. I believe for the amount this meal was being charged for should have had fresh vegetables.I will allow that the Salmon was lovely (freshly cooked as well). But I didn't touch the vegetables. At the end of the meal I took my plate with me to pay which was quickly whipped away with the quick comment that the 'chef' had already told them of the issue. We did get a partial refund but attitude of staff was not the best - makes you wonder how many other issues they have during the day.The rest in our group meals were OK but because of my issue it put a pall over the whole meal. They also know I am not a person who makes complaints without reason and would rather soldier on. I will definitely miss eating in this restaurant with its fantastic sea viewsMore Quayside Restaurant, Swanage reviews

We have had sunday lunch several times at Quayside and have found both the service and the food to be excellent. The setting is beautiful, with large glass windows on 3 sides of the restaurant giving panoramic views of the seascape. In fact we like it so much that we have booked a large birthday celebration party there.More Quayside Restaurant, Swanage reviews
Best fish and chip shop in dorset. Go in most weekends for their very reasonably priced breaded cod special. We also go in every Tuesday night for one of Their new famous "chicken fillet burgers" which are to die for. The boys in their are very dishy and can't be more helpful fulfilling your every whim. Going their is one of the highlights of my week. Great food, good prices and a bit of eye candy whilst you wait. 5 star, great establishment.More Case and Brewer, Dorchester reviews
Real shame! :( Moved to Basingstoke 2 months ago, had 5 takeaways from here since, normally good food but last Friday took 2 hours to arrive and was freezing cold when it did. Spoke to Duggan the manager who was very apologetic and offered a free meal, just called that that free meal in that came with an abusive delivery guy telling me I wasn't a valued customer and should pay £20! Won't be using again!More The Spice Restaurant, Basingstoke reviews
Excellent fish and chips and chicken breas whih are very good value! The staff and owner are always cheerful and helpful - one even delivered a missing item to my home after I phoned up about it!! Thoroughly recommended.More Johns Fish And Chips, Bournemouth reviews
Our first visit, breakfast food was just warm eggs dry and hard. It works out dear as you have to pay extra for mushrooms and coffee. But I must say that Debbie and staff are very good we do like our food hotter. This was 9am so the food should be hotter than yours was.More Alma Inn, Southampton reviews
Excellent food, Must try Mutter Panner in veg and Lahori chicken curry. Biryani is mind blowing. Will rate it 5/5.More Naan, Bournemouth reviews
