Light and airy interiors in classic colonial style characterise this beautifully appointed pub and restaurant. Within the Poole conservation area and close to some of Bournemouth’s best beaches, The Plantation is ideally sited for visitors sampling the delights of this picturesque coast. At the bar Upham ales are ably supported by Orchard Pig’s range of bottled ciders, while short menus showcase high quality, fresh, local and seasonal ingredients. A typical three-course choice could begin with treacle-cured salmon, horseradish, rye and apple cracker; continue with glazed beef cheek with tongue ragù, confit potato, shiitakes and port sauce; and finish with gingerbread, blackberry and eggnog trifle.
