Welcome

Big on flavour!

Fiercely independent since 2009 we cook from scratch and serve premium cocktails with bags of personality. We work with the areas best suppliers including Bournemouth's Bad Hand Coffee, Ringwood's Bake House 24,  Dorset's Black Cow Cheddar and pure milk vodka and of course our fantastic New Forest butcher and Poole based fishmonger. There's beer from Brewdog and Sierra Nevada and a rather clever wine and gin list. 

Starting out as Reef Encounter we have grown into James and White, same team, same food but we don't have to explain what happened to the Boscombe Surf Reef anymore!

COVID UPDATE

We are nearly back to normal! We continue to offer table service to diners and ask that those coming to the bar only do so at designated order points.  Masks are now optional and there is no limit on table sizes.  However, we are only currently hosting large groups in designated areas.  Please note opening and service hours are subject to change at this time.

Offers and Events

Offers, live music, special events and private hire.

You will never find better offers than via our own social media, mailing list or right here on our website, promise! 

Look out for regular live music nights featuring the best sounds from the South's leading musicians.  Plus, we like a party so put one on for just about anything from Burns Night to Talk Like A Pirate Day!

Lonely Planet Review - Boscombe Spa

"Big squishy sofas, a mellow soundtrack and a sea-view terrace give this chilled-out eatery a surf-bar vibe. Brunch can be healthy (avocado, salmon and egg) or decadent (maple syrup-drenched French toast). Or opt for juicy burgers and roasted veg skewers – perhaps while sipping a cool beer, watching the waves." Lonely Planet Guide UK
