The Canteen



Image of Mike and Thamar Wilson, Proprietors of The CanteenThe Canteen Restaurant is a family business that mixes Great British and European cooking,

the menu always has something for everyone.


In the summer the emphasis is on fish, mostly landed locally, including oysters and crabs from Poole. In the winter Mike butchers his own whole organic Lleyn lambs from Corfe castle, sides of organic Longhorn beef and rose veal from Lychett Matravers. In season wild deer and pheasants from the Purbecks.


The menu is inspired by passion not fashion, with common fish respected as much as the more expensive cheffy kind and due respect given to the whole animal. Local fruit and veg is used wherever possible. Everything is homemade, absolutely without exception.


Service is genuinely friendly and the ambience relaxed.


Open Monday to Saturday 6pm to late.
