Festive Greeting

from the Westbourne Magazine

There’s so much going on in Westbourne! New restaurants and shops popping up all the time, see page 20 for our round up, and a huge new Westbourne Christmas Fair to look forward to on the 1st December, see page 4. In this edition we have news of Rock Restaurant coming to Westbourne, a competition to win a meal for two at Soho, offers and gifts ideas from local shops and lots more. Thanks go to reader Sue Waugh for sending in her stunning photo for the cover. Beautiful in any weather, it’s the old water tower in the Upper Gardens, just a few minutes from Westbourne. Will Westbourne get a white Christmas this year? Only time will tell.

from in and around Westbourne

Westbourne Christmas Fair As the number of shopping days to Christmas count down, Westbourne is getting in the festive mood with window displays taking shape and fairy lights going up (now where are those spare bulbs?). The annual Westbourne Christmas Fair is going to be a HUGE affair this year and takes place on Saturday 1st December. Landseer Road will be closed to traffic for a farmers market with all manner of stalls to help you stock up for Christmas. There will be choirs and carol singers, bands and buskers and lots more throughout the day. Dave Taylor from Fire Radio will be officially switching on the Christmas Lights at 4pm. There will also be entertainment zones outside M&S, the Post Office and a Grotto in the Arcade.

Rock Restaurant Comes to Westbourne The old Methodist church is seeing activity above Tesco as Rock Westbourne gets ready to open it’s doors in late November. Nick Atkins co-founder of ROCK Restaurants told us, “In Westbourne we have found the perfect location for Rock where we can create our signature informal and friendly restaurant environment offering our unique collection of British cuisine. We are looking forward to delivering what we hope will fast become a highly-favoured local eating spot.” There will be 70-80 covers including a chefs table set behind an open plan kitchen. Diners will enter into a bar with a mezzanine complete with a live pianist. Service will be from 10am until late and customers will be welcome for coffees, drinks, lunch or dinner.

New Baravelli Range at Chocol8 more seating!

After their recent move across Poole Road, we met up with Julie and John from Chocol8. The new store, in trademark pinks, looks every bit the part but with noticeably more seating. “We’ve more than doubled our capacity from 12 to 25 in the new store”, explains Julie. “We’ve had a great response to the new lounge from our customers” adds John. “It’s all very positive, lighter, larger and sunny on a good day! We have lots of regular customers, many have become friends and visit daily for their morning coffee and meet up with other regulars.” Introducing Baravelli to Westbourne Chocol8 are launching a new range of beautifully handmade luxury chocolates by a very talented and innovative chocolatier based in North Wales. Having recently exhibited at the London Speciality Chocolate Fair and currently involved in the finals of the London Chocolate Week with yet another amazing new recipe which involves port, cheese and chocolate! Baravelli and other Christmas stock was filling the shelves when we visited with lots of options for Christmas gifts. £3.65 Drink and Chocolate Offer The ‘Chocol8 Treat’ of a standard drink with your choice of 3 chocolates from the cabinet for just £3.65 proved so popular it’s continuing to run. Pop in for your Chocol8 Treat today! Chocol8 will be opening on Sundays leading up to Christmas starting on Sunday the 18th November.

A Warm Welcome Argyll

We met up with John and the staff from Café Argyll, a warm and welcoming eatery within the grounds of the Argyll Bowling Club on West Cliff. Professional chef John, who trained at The Carlton in the 70’s, has worked in France and was a finalist of National Chef of the Year, heads things in the kitchen. Along with second chef Matt, who has worked for Rick Stein, John puts together delicious dishes with top quality, locally sourced, produce. From homemade soup, cottage pies, hand beer battered fish and chips to a tempting selection of local cakes and New Forest Ice Cream, the menu has something to please all tastes. A decent coffee is also assured from Italian brand Mokarabia? “Café Argyll is open all year round and also open to the public from 10am every day”, explained John. There is free parking available on West Overcliff Drive and the café is just a few minutes walk from the Tropical Gardens if you fancy an after dinner amble to walk off one of their delicious desserts. On the page opposite is a few of the specials offered at Café Argyll, including the popular Fish Day Friday and the new Christmas Menu. These popular events sell out quickly, so book a table on 01202 762328 to avoid disappointment.

Free Christmas Catalogue

from Kirsty at The Westbourne Bookshop

Welcome to the Christmas Book Review. The choice of great books this Christmas is overwhelming, but some of our particular favourites are featured opposite. If you pick up a FREE copy of our Christmas Books Catalogue there are many more suggestions, and this year we have been able to offer special prices on an even larger range of new titles. Signed editions always make a wonderful Christmas gift and at the time of going to press we have books signed by Michael Palin, Roger Moore, Nigella Lawson and Sebastian Coe. They sell like hot cakes so don’t leave it too late. Don’t forget that we also have a selection of traditional and modern Christmas Cards, Moleskine and Paperblanks Diaries, Gibson’s Jigsaws and Playing Cards and a selection of popular branded Board Games, including Scrabble and Boggle. We also have lots of choice in Calendar designs and can order others within a couple of days, from Astronomy to VW Beetles. NAXOS have a great range of Christmas music on CD from the traditional Christmas Choral Music on Winter’s Light to the more modern jazz standards on That Christmas Feeling. We also have a selection of DVDs in stock and can order further titles in 1-2 days. Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to all the loyal customers who continue to support us. We would like to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and will be offering our usual selection of wine and nibbles on Saturday 8th and Saturday 22nd December (and maybe a couple of days in between). Best wishes from Kirsty, Joanna, Sarah and Mary.

New on The High Street new businesses and shops

The ever changing mix of shops, cafés, restaurants and other businesses in Westbourne continues to evolve and the overall occupancy rate still bucks the national trend, with very few empty units on the high street. Shops that have opened recently and that are due to open include a craft store in the Arcade, a new Indian take-away on Seamoor Road and Spar has had a make-over as ‘Central and Beer Cellar’. Two empty units in the Arcade are currently being worked on and are due to open soon, one as an art gallery/sales and another called La-de-da selling home accessories, vintage collectables and hand made produce. Tigerlilly is due to open in the Grand Cinema buildings and becomes the first shop visitors come across travelling from Bournemouth. We’re excited to see Rock restaurant (page 4) in the old Methodist church and the Hogshead is soon to re-open as ‘The Libertine’ offering fine dining, after a complete refurbishment.
