About Plates and Co.

Plates and Co. is housed inside a majestic building that you can’t miss. Where? Landseer Road in the charming Bournemouth suburb of Branksome. When? Whenever you’ve even a little bit of a hankering for top quality food and wine. Modern European food, we should add, as the a la carte takes its main inspiration from British and French cooking and features dishes like duck confit with white bean cassoulet, as well as blade of beef slow cooked in black treacle. Then, when it comes to the wine list, there’s a marvellous international selection. Branksome is lucky to have Plates and Co. in Bournemouth so reserve a table now.

For £19 for three courses you really can't complain but here's a few tips. My starter was very good but not hot enough. When you explained that the beef was rump I didn't think you meant a rump steak. It might have been wiser to say we have run out of the roast beef. The lights hanging from the ceilings need a good clean, they are covered in dust. Going up the stairwell were lovely candle votives which had the candles not been empty and lit would have created a lovely ambience and also been seen from outside which would be inviting. Also our candle on our table was not lit. If they were at the beginning of service I suggest investing in better candles with a longer burning time as cheap ones are always a false economy. We will definitely be back though because as I said for £19.00 for 3 courses you really can't complain. A few nice touches to the venue and I am sure that could be £25.00 for 3 courses in a few months.

Three of my party had the black pudding with poached egg.....the black pudding was lost in the mash potato and all three poached eggs were hard,the experience of a poached egg is when you cut into it should be runny... but unfortunately no runny egg with all three...very disappointing did tell waitress, was going to pass it on to the chef. We were looking forward to having the slow cooked beef, but had run out which was another disappiont!! had to do with rump which was ok . The Yorkshire puddings were cold and soggy probable made earlier and left, which we did understand as you have to pre cook somethings - wouldn't have taken a few moments in the oven to crisp up ,would have made them much more enjoyable. The roast potatoes were not good as well it was not just one person who said it was a few of them . The deserts were the best dish but I had the pineapple which was supposed to be chard came out sliced no char....didn't live up to what menu read. Overall we were not wowed which was ashamed as my husband and I had been for lunch and was delicious . Decide to take family for Sunday but was not impressed not sure if we will return.... Shame!!

Lovely food. Menu options available for all tastes including special gluten free and Vegan. Vegetarian options available as standard. Did I say food was delicious. Service as you would like it, prompt but unobtrusive. Starters included a perfectly cooked poached egg with black pudding (hers) and scorched mackerel with horseradish cream (mine). Mains chicken confit cassouletish with roasted veg (hers) and fishcake, fishy and not boring, with pickled veg (mine). Finished off with Carpaccio pineapple + (hers) and Chocolate Pie with espresso/caramel sauce (mine). Couldn't ask for a nicer lunch.

A very pleasant dining experience in every respect. The service was efficient, helpful and very willing to please. The food was excellent and well presented. Unlike some restaurants which are noisy, this one was able to absorb the usual chatter which did not intrude upon other diners. In all, a lovely evening with some guests from America who were very impressed with this restaurant as we were.

Plates has a very welcoming ambience, the staff are attentive and the food is first class, beautifully presented, very tasty and for me the portions are just right, the choice is limited but very good and different!! Nothing dull, all very "new" and inventive. My friends and I enjoyed our meal immensely and will be sure to visit Plates again.

Very nice lunch. The mussels were excellent, the fishcake was huge and would of been nicer presentation wise if there had been 2 smaller ones on the plate. Pork loin a bit dry and tuf but the waitress dealt with the problem perfectly offering to change it and giving me my glass of wine on the house. Very pleasant service and very apologetic. All in all a good experience.
