Blakes restaurant in Bournemouth is an award-winning restaurant that has won a stellar spot in the city’s dining firmament. Many diners rank this as the city’s number one place to eat. With a pair of AA rosettes to recommend it, Blakes is found in The Connaught Hotel, a stylish and historic local landmark near the cliffs overlooking Bournemouth Bay. Blakes is all about style, quality and service, and a recent refurbishment has conserved the aura of comfort and luxury while renewing the décor with panache. Head Chef David Hutchence employs fresh local ingredients in his creative modern British menu and Maitre d’ Nick Rutigliano’s bright young staff serve with grace and professionalism. Blakes is an excellent choice for all meal events, from romantic duos to family birthday celebrations.
