Eating Out and Takeaways in Christchurch

Feeling peckish?  Looking forward to a light lunch, sinful cream tea or sumptuous evening meal? You can now get them delivered to your door or as a takeaway for a picnic in the countryside.

With its famous annual Food and Wine Festival, featuring celebrity chefs and focusing on local produce, Christchurch has gained a reputation as a ‘foodie town’. 

This moniker is not misplaced with a tempting range of quality cafes, tearooms, pubs and restaurants offering tasty treats from breakfasts to evening meals, and all snack stops in between!

The Castle Kitchen is set within the grounds of Highcliffe Castle and has a firm focus on local produce. Being located near Christchurch, Bournemouth and the New Forest National Park, it is a great place to stop for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea during your day of exploring.

A little taste of home, or away?

Not sure if it is the thought of fresh seafood, traditional pub grub, Italian, Indian or perhaps Thai that has got your taste buds tingling? 

Fear not, as Christchurch’s wide variety of restaurants, cafes and takeaways have all types of cuisine covered.

So is to be a great British Sunday carvery enjoyed with all the family, traditional seaside fish and chips wrapped in paper, or elegant dishes at an award-winning restaurant? 

Whichever you choose, you will find somewhere to suit.

Chic Boutique or Modern Contemporary

From modern contemporary restaurants with sweeping panoramas over the harbour, to more intimate and romantic dining, whichever you prefer you could be drinking in the views whilst you sip your wine or enjoying the warm, cosy comfort of chic traditional furnishings in front of a roaring log fire.

Enjoy al fresco dining, from fish and chips on the beach or harbourside, to coffee in a quaint courtyard.  

Watch the sunset over the Priory church as you enjoy the food at an AA rosette restaurant, or simply enjoy honest, homemade treats at a local cafe.

Whatever whets your appetite, and whatever type of establishment and atmosphere you prefer, with such a wide choice of establishments that perfect coffee shop or tearoom, bistro or restaurant is just around the corner!
