The Antelope, Poole

Reputedly the oldest hotel in Poole, The Antelope is a traditional coastal town inn which offers 23 comfortable bedrooms, making it the perfect place to get a great night’s sleep after a busy day.

Located in the sea port’s main high street, the old coaching house has been a popular meeting place for many centuries.   Ideally located within walking distance to the main quay, the cosy bar and hidden Smuggler’s restaurant are the ideal retreat from the hustle and bustle of the lively fishing town.


Food served 7am–10pm Mon-Fri, 8am–10pm Sat-Sun

Last check in is 11pm


Dogs are welcome in the bar area and some hotel bedrooms
