About Les Bouviers

Since 1990, Les Bouviers has been providing foodies and gourmands from nearby Wimborne, Poole and Bournemouth with a fine dining experience. Set within five acres of beautifully landscaped gardens south of the village of Oakley, Les Bouviers is the perfect place for celebrating a special occasion, whether it's an intimate family meal or a big, group function. On the menu you’ll find refined British and French-inspired classics, crafted from the best seasonal produce. Start off with some sauteed Scottish scallops with swede & sage puree and a grilled asparagus sweet & sour sauce, before moving on to a mouth-watering main like the duo of Highland venison (wild rump of venison and homemade venison, apricot & thyme sausages with Parisienne potatoes and rosemary sauce). You’ll find Les Bouviers located on Arrowsmith Road – to avoid disappointment, booking a table in advance is recommended.

We had a surprise taster menu which was lovely. We were asked if there was anything that we couldn't eat, however everything that came out was beautifully cooked and well presented.

Fantastic family run business could not have asked for better a service at any time, attention to detail and the effort of making you feel welcome was done with out any effort, fantastic evening meal with everything being spot on would highly recommend and i don't usually do that as I'm a fussy so and so....e Malcolm & Sue

Excellent food, excellent service. We were looked after from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. If you are adventurous with food I would recommend the 7-course "secret menu". No more problems wondering what to choose from the menu!

We arrived early and were warmly welcomed by all the staff from the "Fire-Lighter" to the Office Manager! We had a superb meal, beautifully prepared, served and delicious. On the down side I thought the home made bread was a bit "tough", but I think that these new fangled sour dough recipes do create a "leather back" crust. I suppose I should go out more! I'll certainly go back to Les Bouviers as the value for money was EXCELLENT!

Great food as ever, especially the main course. Bar area needs to be bigger if it is to be used to receive guests and for them to choose their meals when it is busy. Great selection of cheeses. Nice wine at reasonable price. The younger waiters need a bit more training and we're not as attentive as they could be. Coffee was poor - weak and tasteless. Needs sorting urgently as not good value at £8.00 for cafetiere for 2.

The food was excellent but it did feel a little bit fawlty towers-ish. On arrival we were unsure were to go, it was unclear that there was a bar/ lounge for dinners or if we had arrived at a care home as one of our party commented. Having said that we could not fault the food it was exceptionally good .

There was nothing to complain about. The service, food and surroundings were exemplorary. The sauce in the seared escalope of salmon was divine. Thank you for making our lunch such a pleasurable one. I shall certainly be coming again. Diana

First class food. Start to finish. Good variety on menu. Everyone on our table had something different and everyone loved it. Portions just right. Beautifully presented. Will return. Will recommend.

Lovely food and staff attentive. Undecided about location - felt a bit like having dinner served in our own home. Reception area like front lounge and dinning room like our own but shared with others with kitchen area directly off.
