SquareMeal Review of
Schpoons and Forx
The Hilton Bournemouth’s casual Brit restaurant takes inspiration from an eclectic supporting cast of international ingredients, as well as the tools of the trade: the dining room is decorated with utensils, which means spoons, spatulas and forks hanging from the ceiling. Questionable adornments aside, the restaurant is also filled with sunlight and an appealing buzz, thanks to an open kitchen. In possession of a tandoor oven, the kitchen turns out the likes of whole, tandoor-roasted mackerel, or perhaps cuttlefish with clams and sherry vinegar. There’s a Middle Eastern accent too, the menu peppered with charred flat breads and helpings of Morrocan-spiced feta: our sizeable portion of marinated Salt Marsh lamb rump was presented meze-style, with pomegranate seeds, pickled chillies, mint and yogurt combining for lip-smacking, tangy flavours. A variety of steaks also feature, well-supported by a manageable wine list filled with useful notes. Food prices are predictably high for a hotel so close to the beach, but set Sunday roast and bottomless Prosecco brunch menus are more accessible. With a sky-high destination bar and modern, spacious hotel rooms, Schpoons & Forx is a strong all-rounder.
Bottomless Brunch menu at £29.95 per person, including 60 minutes of bottomless Prosecco
