Places to eat & drink in Poole.

With a rich maritime history, the busy resort town of Poole stands on the northern shore of Britain's largest natural harbour and one of its biggest shallow water anchorages. Poole Harbour was, in fact, a key embarkation point for allied troops on D-Day.

As a port, the town enjoyed great prosperity in the Middle Ages and today offers cross-Channel sailings to France and the Channel Islands. It is also a popular destination for thousands of sailors, windsurfers, and even oil prospectors.

The birthplace of the thriller writer John le Carre, its most famous export is the uniquely-designed pottery ware known as Poole Pottery whose products are now considered highly collectable.

Tower Park is one of the largest leisure complexes in the country, but Poole has many other attractions. Brownsea Island is worth a visit to see the rare red squirrel while a local waterfront museum explains the history of the area.

We cannot give a full list of all available food outlets but below is a small selection of those available in Poole or surrounding areas.
