General manager of the Poole restaurant, Christi Pitak, said: “We’re incredibly excited to relaunch on April 30 and can’t wait to open the doors! We have a super location here in Canford Cliffs – the perfect destination for a long lazy lunch, family get together over breakfast or big celebration.

"Our refreshed interiors and extended bar area have been designed to provide our guests with the perfect surroundings to relax and enjoy the best of what Loch Fyne itself has to offer. We look forward to welcoming new and returning guests very soon!”
