First published in News

POOLE Audi was host to the region’s most powerful chefs and restaurateurs at an event that saw the launch of its Feast dining guide.

More than 110 guests attended the launch, which showcased five Poole restaurants alongside a fine wine pairing, from the Royal household’s wine merchant, Berry Bros. and Rudd.

Feast itself is a collection of impartial restaurant reviews, recipes and interviews and presents its readers with an unbiased view of fine dining in Poole, Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

David Kelly, Poole Audi’s MD, said: “The profile of guest at the launch of Feast represented a significant cross section of the most influential individuals within the restaurant fraternity in the south.

“And as intended there was a bias towards Poole, where the guide is focused.

“The event introduced Feast to its audience accompanied by some stunning canapés from the Custom House, the FJB Group, Storm, Hotel du Vin and Patrick’s. Further to that Lesley Waters circulated with the guests and Nigel Bloxham from the Crab House Café personally served his Portland oysters.”

Poole Audi - worst customer service ever.

Had car all day from 8am to look at a window electrical fault, they then telephoned at 4.30pm saying they had started to look at it, as if they were in some way pleased with themselves that they'd started work!

I took advantage of the complementary full car valeting service which is all they'd achieved in the 8.5 hours, picked up my now very shiny car and took it somewhere else :O)

Poole's finest why the mention of Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Some of these places do offer fine food but service in some of those listed above is shocking. So that effects the fine dining comment

The whole idea of a fine dining guide is to have an unbiased view of restaurants, reviewed by the public for the public - that's something money can't buy, so not advertisements at all. I think it is wonderful that someone has thought of doing this. It gives every restaurant in our area the chance to be in the guide based on their food and not their pocket. Good on Poole Audi for launching the Feast guide I say.
