Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Located in the pleasant area of Hamworthy in the coastal town of Poole, The Yachtsman is a brilliant traditional pub that serves a wonderful selection of food and drink. Inside you’ll find a nautical theme befi tting of the pub’s moniker – think wooden oars displayed on walls, model ships and photos of historic ocean liners.
Our attentive waiter showed us to our seats and we were promtly served starters of flavoursome cheese and bacon potato skins, and delicious lamb kofte skewers with tzatziki. For the main course, the Badger beer-battered fish and chips stood out to me, and I wasn’t disappointed. The fish was flaky and tender, cooked in beautifully crisp batter and served with fluffy chips, tartare sauce and mushy peas. My partner plumped for the chicken Caesar burger stacked with juicy chicken breast and smoked streaky bacon. We made sure to leave room for dessert, and indulged in silky coffee and walnut panna cotta and rich St Clements sponge with dairy custard.
To accompany all the delicious food, you’ll find an excellent selection of drinks at the bar, including local Badger ale and New World wine, as well as all the popular lagers and spirits. Why not take your drink outside to the spacious beer garden where your little ones can enjoy the play area?
