The Inn in the Park is Pub of the Week

A VENUE described as having “real food, real people and real atmosphere”- The Inn In the Park is Pub of the Week.

Located in Poole, The Inn in the Park is a Victorian style pub offering great food, a warm welcome, and jazzy music nights.

Although owned by Wadworth, the pub and its five letting rooms are very much at the hands of Maggie Dale and her partner Darren.

Maggie said: “Whilst its brewery owned, it’s independently run. It’s just me, my husband, and a great team of employees.

“We’re just a little independent business on our own fighting against the big boys.”

The Inn In the Park has been subject to raving reviews, as customers continue to return for its friendly staff and locally sourced dishes.

Maggie said: “We have excellent reviews. They say how friendly the staff are. We are just all working hard to deliver what we feel is a great experience.

“I’ve got a team of great chefs. They produce fresh food that we source locally.”

But despite the great feedback, it has not been the easiest journey for the couple since taking over the premises in September 2020.

Maggie said: “We took it over in September and had a lockdown in November. We opened again in December, then had another lockdown in January, February, March, and April. So, it’s been a roller coaster.”

Maggie said: “We have a lot of regulars but also a lot of tourism. There’s a lot of holiday homes around here, people with second homes and Airbnb’s, so we get a lot from that.

“We do a jazz night on a Monday which gets extremely busy- theres a different jazz band on every week.

“It’s something I did before in a different pub and it followed me here because I have a background in jazz and singing. I used to work on cruise ships.

“It’s a really good night but it’s crucial to book a table.

“I also do quizzes. It’s absolutely packed in here on a quiz night.”

The Inn in the Park can be found on 26 Pinewood Road, Branksome Park, Poole, BH13 6JS
