With the June weather finally starting to live up to expectations, The NICI has opened its new Old Harry Rocks Bar & Restaurant.

The now complete casual dining spot, which overlooks Bournemouth’s sandy shores from it Westcliff location, is a laidback beachside restaurant catering to seaside revellers and foodies alike.

Complimenting the epic views with big flavours, among the restaurant’s offering is a plate of mussels and clams – complete with saffron and focaccia croutons or slow-roasted beef picanha, chimichurri and onion jam.

Sharing options include a combo of beef picanha, prawns, mussels, fries and a salad.

The food is complemented by a range of wines and a selection of curated signature sundowner cocktails.

Lukasz Dwornik, Managing Director of The NICI Group, said: “The opening weekend has been amazing. The teams have worked hard to create a stylish and relaxed setting that sets us apart from anything else in the area.

“I want to say thank you to our guests and to our staff who have worked hard to make Old Harry Rocks something very special.”

At the heart of the 120-cover bar & restaurant is the statement fireplace surrounded by comfy seating to enjoy cocktails and conversation. A dual-aspect bar serves the restaurant crowd and poolside cabana dwellers alike.

The interior is decked out with warm woods, terrazzo tiles, and woven lighting to create a rustic-luxe, Mediterranean island vibe – and when the sun’s out, the restaurant’s stunning bi-folds seamlessly connect the inside with the sprawling terrace for leisurely sunshine lunches.
