Restaurants near to the Langtry Manor Mini-Guide

When we’re away on holiday or on a business trip we have to admit that food is always of prime importance to the experience and thus like to do a little research of local eateries in the vicinity of the hotel in which we are staying, as well as searching out those special locations that are a notch above the rest and not to be missed.   So with that in mind, we’ve compiled a mini-guide of local restaurants within a 20 minute drive of the Langtry Manor after we were inspired by Viewpoints & Reviews Bournemouth restaurant guide.   Though we cannot vouch for every location, this will at least give you an idea of what establishments are in the neighbourhood and hopefully get your taste-buds charged and ready for indulgence!
