Guildhall Tavern Restaurant, Poole, Dorset
Our Takeaway Service has Restarted

Our thoughts are with you and your families during these very difficult times.

As you will probably be aware, to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus, the UK Government has ordered that all UK restaurants must close until further notice. We are therefore currently not serving meals in our restaurant.

As you can imagine, this will have an enormous impact upon our restaurant, our family, our wonderful staff and our loyal customers.

Whilst these restrictions remain in place we are however now offering a takeaway service of French Style Seafood and Wine.

This enables you to enjoy the same high quality wine and food that you have experienced in our restaurant but at home with your family. Obviously this is a drastic and sudden change to our operations but we are determined to rise to the challenge and deliver a great service for you. Your support through the orders you place will also enable us and our team of staff to get through this crisis to the time when we will be able to offer you our normal restaurant service.

To place your order for takeaway wine and food, please call 07957503027. The restaurant remains closed but we will arrange collection by appointment

Collection times can be between 10am til 1pm or 6pm til 8pm.

A delivery service for addresses within a 5 mile radius from the restaurant is available between 3pm and 5pm.
