Restaurant Roots is a relaxed, intimate, tasting menu restaurant situated in Southbourne, just around the corner from the beautiful South coast sandy beaches.
The food at Roots is very much flavour focused. Dishes are simple, with sometimes unusual flavour combinations, to best showcase the beautiful ingredients we have around us.
"I’m not normally a fan of tasting menus – I’ve yet to meet one I want to go all the way with – but I totally understand it here."
Tony Turnbull, The Times
"Wonderful food expertly crafted by the gifted and enthusiastic chef Jan. Treat yourself or a loved one to this truly outstanding food experience."
Gillian Donald, Google Review
"The food is inventive but uncomplicated, thoughtful and confidently constructed and presented. Service here is great, from a very knowledgeable team, and the elegant, intimate dining room (it’s small, so book early) is a relaxed, comfortable space."
Paul Hackett, AA Inspector
