A Birthday Meal at NEO Restaurant Bournemouth

When Hubby asked me where I wanted to go for a birthday meal, I reeled off all the previous restaurants we had been to but we both agreed we wanted to be a little more adventurous and try somewhere new.

Set in a huge glass building opposite Bournemouth Pier, NEO Restaurant has been open just two months and looks spectacular with 180° of floor to ceiling windows which offer views over Bournemouth Garden, the Pier and the beach. On the downstairs of the building… Continue Reading “A Birthday Meal at NEO Restaurant Bournemouth”
