If you’ve been to South Deep in Poole before don’t think you know it all, as this water’s edge restaurant and café is like a chameleon – every season brings new assets, more room, new furniture, and of course a changing menu.
Once a well-kept secret,
thanks to a determined effort
to keep it amongst ourselves (and what an epic failure that was), today South Deep is one of the most popular restaurants in Dorset. Fact.
This Chamonix-style chalet boasts open water
frontage in the summer along with al fresco dining, tapas nights, and a bountiful wine list thanks to the wine obsession of part-owner and chef Stephane. His other obsessions include detailed menus, elaborate platters, charcuterie, cheeses, and efficient, cosmopolitan, and friendly staff.
Dine on the decking, dine in the restaurant and do make sure you book for dinner in the summer months. Popular year round for breakfasts, and thanks to its locale, one can walk, run, cycle, and if you’re keen kayak to the restaurant! Adjacent to Parkstone Bay Marina South Deep attracts a good proportion of boat owners on their way in and out of the harbour.
The chalet, shack, hut (all adoring nicknames that South Deep has acquired maybe in a bid to fool potential customers), is fabulous even in the middle of winter. What could be better than a red wine by the log burner – if you didn’t know better you could be forgiven for asking for a vin chaud!
The menu is fabulous, with a wide variety of elaborate salads – the Folle being an Enjoy favourite – pear, dolcelatte, cured meats, and home toasted Melba on a

bed of crispy leaves. And
there’s the fresh fish, moules, French fries, steaks, meatballs
and tapas – gazpacho, prawns, mini burgers, chicken, ribs, and risotto.
What a treat South Deep is; book for dinner, rock up, run up, or swim up for breakfast and lunch and enjoy what’s now the worst kept secret in the South! 01202 747857
