The perfect Bournemouth café and boutique B&B, with fabulous food – and comfy bedrooms!

The Living Room

2 Drury Road Bournemouth Dorset BH4 8HA 01202 761 135

We say

In a great location, close to the boutiquey businesses of Westbourne and a short walk from Alum Chine beach, The Living Room is not just a great B&B, but a café too, serving delectable menus of home-cooked food at breakfast and lunchtimes in a homely, anything-goes environment. Breakfast is a much-lauded affair that entices plenty of non-residents in to their comfy coffee lounge, offering a fabulous choice from the basic Full English to 'Ham Hock Hash' to 'Green Eggs and Ham' and corn fritters and pancakes. They do lovely coffee, chai lattes and tea in a pot, and for lunch a proper Welsh Rarebit, exotic snacks and sandwiches such as a guilt-inducing pulled pork melt and various daily specials chalked on the blackboard – and on warm days you can sit outside and enjoy the local vibe. One of our fave places to eat – and sleep – in Bournemouth.
