The Bingley's Experience
It is with a very heavy heart, Bingley's is closed until the lockdown measures are alleviated and we can again open our door to old friends and new. We will reopen as soon as possible with a fresh new menu. The Bingley's Team look forward to welcoming you.

Payment may be made by card or bank transfer - let us know your preference and we will contact you with the details.
Bingley's is a small intimate restaurant in the Old Town, Poole, just off the Quay. We serve fabulous homemade food in relaxed, tasteful surroundings. We are fully licensed, with a small select wine list and bar.
Bingley's is open Tue-Fri from 6:30pm, Sat 5.30pm. We can accommodate 32 guests, so booking is recommended (by telephone please for reservations within 48 hours). We would respectfully request that guests advise of cancellations as we now operate a waiting list.
Allergies/Special Diets: If you have any allergies or special dietary needs, please advise your server or, with a pre-order, we will do our best to accommodate your preferences and needs, especially Vegan or Vegetarian options. Please be advised that, being a commercial kitchen, we can never guarantee that there is no risk of cross-contamination, eg eggs, dairy, gluten, deadly nightshade family, as these products are used in the production of some of our recipes.
Bingley’s is part of a 16th Century Grade II* Listed Tudor building, one of the oldest in Poole. The front of the building has been modified over the centuries but in Cinnamon Lane, at the rear, the timber framed gable can still be clearly seen. Take a moment to notice the early 19th Century (circa 1830) painted ceiling with flowers and corner modules. The building was owned at one time by Thomas Bingley, who was a wealthy merchant and Mayor of Poole in 1555.
We feel there is a unique ambiance to our little restaurant. We are happy to accommodate groups of six or more by prior arrangement and ordering in advance will enhance your evening with us, especially if you have a theatre or later engagement; a deposit of £5pp secures your reservation. We are happy to talk to you about exclusive use of Bingley's for your special event (room hire, menu, additional items). Conditions for the exclusive booking of Bingley's are min 20 people, min £40ph (food and drink). We can sometimes accommodate lunchtime reservations, or events on days we are normally closed, for groups of 14 minimum by prior arrangement.
