You need to book for this restaurant but it is well worth it. The menu has been well thought through and those with specific diets and allergies are well catered for.

Couldn't fault this restaurant at all, beautiful food, perfect portions from starter to desert.
The price you pay is more than worth it.
The staff are so kind and helpful. Definitely recommend to anyone in the area to go there.

We had a delicious meal at Bingleys on 11th December. Service was very attentive and professional.
It was a shame it was so quiet, this was the only downside

Good food and great service in a very nice and historic building.

The vegetarian/vegan options were different and excellent.

It was quiet due to the booking and distancing rules.

We will be going again.

a lovely quaint place to eat. Service was excellent .Food is very good, the only thing I didn't like were the potatoes as they were more like crips.

We had a lovely meal at Bingley’s. Felt very self as we were seated far away from other diners (this has not been the case at other restaurants I’ve been to recently). Our food was amazing! I had the cauliflower cous cous and it was one of the tastiest vegetarian main courses I’ve ever eaten. We were well looked after and if we ever come back to Poole we will return!

We have been to Bingleys several times and have never been disappointed. The service was first class. You do have to wait for your food but only because the food is freshly prepared. The meals we had were delicious. My partner had a vegetarian option and was delighted with the quality of her meal. Definitely recommend anytime.
