- What is it good for?
Enjoyed by The Sunday Times food critic AA Gill and handily situated on the beach by Bournemouth pier, West Beach is a welcoming treat, serving the best seafood in town. Mid-mouthful glimpses of the aqua blue sea and miles of golden sand complete the experience.
- Signature dish
Waiters hurry to serve you the famous West Beach fish pie or South Coast bream fillet - from sea to plate in minutes.
- Who's the boss?
Andy Price, the vivacious entrepreneur, has transformed a number of landmark Bournemouth buildings into exciting, sought-after eateries, including West Beach, which now has two AA rosettes.
- Any tips?
Ask for a table at the window or bag an outside table on the beach-side deck. There is live jazz on the first Thursday of every month and the daily changing specials board reflects the freshest catch of the day.
- What's the damage?
West Beach does a great two-course set menu for £12.90. Three courses is £15.90.
