Custom House description

Commercial Venue

Medium (1-150)


The Custom House flaunts itself as a picturesque Georgian building with a regal sweeping staircase set amidst the serenity of Poole quay and the adjacent harbour side.

The building is split into three floors:
The top attic floor is used in conjunction with large wedding parties or for smaller sit down wedding breakfasts, as a function room ( buffet style approx 50 people) as well as for the ultimate private dining experience ( primarily 15 to 30 guests sit down)
The middle floor , commonly referred to as the Maison restaurant, is where all the a la carte dining takes place. This first floor restaurant indulges our patrons in panoramic views ,to the east Brownsea Island, and to the west in order to achieve the ideal sunset.
The menu is comprised of modern English/ French cuisine specialising in both seafood and meat dishes with the essential vegetarian options on offer too.
All of our cuisine is locally sourced with the furtherest being Hampshire.

Unlike most other restaurants in the area, we are open for Custom 7 days a week, but we do recommend prior booking especially for weekend dining.
Our restaurant also caters for corporate functions, business lunches and the ideal intimate wedding breakfast/ reception.

We co ordinate functions, weddings and group bookings and will be only too pleased to assist with any queries you may have.
