Get down here, you'll love it. They've refurbed downstairs into a funky surf shack and plenty of beer as well as their stock of loads-a-vodka. PS v good lookin' bar maids

This place is amazing. Just had my birthday there in the little dowsntairs room. Didn't even have to pay anything for it. The staff were great, thanks for the best birthday ever.

a bit small? never anywhere to sit. tend to end up leaning on whatever you can find!
always a lovely welcome from the staff and the customers though.

Fruit was a good little bar.

Beware though, in case you drink more than 2 shots as one of the bar staff apparently doensnt like drunk people(He's moved from O'Neills, hopefully shoved). And he works in a bar, what a smart life/career choice that was.

Thanks for posting on the O'Neills site that you've moved to Fruit as this can now be avoided. Yay back to O'Neills.

Good little bar, got on really well with the staff.
Got quite a few free samples from the extensive range of vodka! Which is always appreciated.

This bar has all the right flovours of a great bar. The right cocktails, the right vodkas well the right everything really!!

The Bar is great. I love the feel of the pace. Nice staff when I get served as well.

Excellent bar. Never seen so many vodkas in one place before. Great bar staff, really know their cocktails too!

Fab. A trendy bar that's a little different to these chains. Plenty of cocktails to choose from. Very easy for just a drink on the way pass - we ended up there all night:-)

What can I say? I love this place.. It's possibly my favourite bar in Bournemouth... When working my way down to the clubs I always have a few shots here.. Definately worth a visit.

This is a brilliant place for a late drink (or even an earlier one!)Staff have a great sense of humour and treat you like an old friend (unless if you are an idiot-then you are quickly shown the door-thank god)The managers (Lee and Adam, I think?) know how to run an excellent bar! My one criticism (and it is a really minor one) is the range of draught lagers is pretty small but hey it's a vodka bar so we'll let them off!

Another excellent late bar but it gets packed. Efficient and pleasant staff who can also multi task that you don't see in any other bars in Bournemouth except maybe Downes. After drinking in here you just cannot say you don't like vodka... I never knew you could get one that tastes like cream soda. As for the specials you must ask about the mini-guinness.

Oh yes!!! The vodkas here are blinding (not literally)! The barmen were great, extremely competent, and asked us about our tastes in drinks before suggesting individual vodka-based cocktails we would all enjoy. My advice is to try the toffee vodka with apple juice, sounds gross but is a great favourite, and dance or gossip the evening away downstairs.

Shocking. A new bar in Bournemouth that isn't rubbish. In fact, it's quite the opposite. I do hope it isn't owned by the man that owns all the other bars in town.

Can't agree more. Fruit is the friendliest bar in Bournemouth, A great range of vodkas and the best cosktails in town. Love the specials board. Love the women that go there!

Best bar in Bournemouth by far. Intimate and friendly. No chavs - which is a miracle in town these days. Great London decor without being pretentious. Cool and varied music. On fri and sat funky house with precussion. Loads of weird and wonderful drinks - and 100s of vodkas. Fruit shows others the way forward!
