Our Sandbanks restaurant is the perfect spot to enjoy classically prepared fish and seafood in a sophisticated environment with unrivalled views of the harbour and Brownsea Island beyond.

This inspiring coastal setting is the ideal location to sample Rick’s iconic seafood dishes like whole Dover sole, lobster thermidor or freshly shucked oysters – plus our great value weekday set lunch menu. All complemented with some of Rick and Charlie Stein’s favourite wines that pair perfectly with our menus.

Book a table in our bar dining space, which offers our full a la carte menu. It’s perfect for a quiet lunch or relaxed family dinner, overlooking our shellfish bar. We also welcome larger bookings of up to 30 diners or non-seated gatherings of up 100 guests.

Impromptu visits and pre-dinner drinks are welcome in our bar, where we offer full table service and an extensive range of cocktails and drinks. Perfect with freshly shucked oysters or a few appetisers.
