The Crooked Beam; honest food

The Crooked Beam is one of the oldest, most historically important restaurants in Dorset. At just over 300 years old, the restaurant is steeped in history and tradition, while at the same time reflecting a modern ambience, unique atmosphere and most importantly, good honest food with the very best of reputations.

Situated on the main Bournemouth/Christchurch Road, the Crooked Beam is an AA Rosette restaurant, offering freshly prepared quality food; cooked to order and served with a smile. Open for hearty lunches, perfectly romantic evening meals and quirky, original special events; you'll love the sophisticated atmosphere which complements the exquisite food.

An ideal setting for family events, anniversaries, parties, or romantic diners for two; the Crooked Beam is a family run business offering the very finest dining with friendly, attentive staff. Proprietors Simon and Vicki Hallam look forward to welcoming you for a memorable dining experience shortly.
