A NEW restaurant specialising in good food and good music is set to open its doors in Bournemouth next week.

Roots & Co is described as, "a new blend of British blues, brews, beats and bites".

The menu includes healthy dishes ranging from sharing plates, British tapas and bar classics, to signature meat skewers and Yorkshire pud dip pots.

There will also be mocktails and craft beers and a music policy that puts a Brit-twist on classic blues, jazz, soul, R&B and retro DJs.

"Roots & Co will fit the bill no matter how you’re feeling – we’ve got the best wines, beers and spirits if you’re good to go, or marvellous mocktails and sensational smoothies if you’d rather take it easy,” says Marianne Brown of M2 Events.

Roots & Co opens in Post Office Road on Friday, November 9. For more details, see Taste on Saturday.
