The Dolphin Centre mainly consisted of fast food chain outlets and “pop up” food stalls. As the photographs depict, you can see a wide cross-section of customer types.
We found the restaurants and franchised coffee outlets and gastro pubs were concentrated primarily in the high street. We found they tended to attract a diverse range of people including business men, students and younger families.
Venturing further onto Poole Quay, the type of restaurants catered for more specialists dining. Specific food categories included gourmet burgers; stone baked pizzas, sea food and steak houses.
Having arrived at Poole Quay we were sorely disappointed to find there were no fine dining experiences, but a host of practically empty restaurants. It would seem likely that due to the time of day we took the pictures customers would not tend to eat at such times. However it transpires that there are a small number of fine dining restaurants in the locality.
