Rick Stein Sandbanks

Rick stein main interior with view


In the heart of Sandbanks, opposite the beach, you’ll find Rick Stein’s restaurant – which specialises in fresh seafood, simply cooked.

With views over the water towards Poole Harbour, it’s the perfect location for a leisurely midweek lunch or to celebrate a special occasion. You can enjoy dishes such as Cornish crab wakame and sashimi of salmon, sea bass and mackerel, alongside classic dishes from Padstow including Dover sole a la Meunière, Indonesian seafood curry and Fruits de mer. In addition to the a la carte menu, a set lunch menu is available from Monday – Friday, or take a seat at the bar and enjoy some cocktails or a glass of champagne and langoustines freshly caught from the west coast of Scotland. Also, available in the bar every morning from 10am, coffee and cake – ideal after a wander along the beach. If you’ve got a four-legged friend, bring them along too – welcome in the bar area all morning and during lunch.
