Poole Methodist Chapel is a small building with a square plan. It is constructed in red brick, and has a hipped slate roof. The chapel is in a single storey, and has an entrance front of three bays. The central door is panelled and is decorated with a Gothic motif. The doorway is round-headed, the fanlight being filled by a board decorated with seven radiating daggers. Above the doorway is a semicircular hood mould, over which is a lamp fitting and an elliptical panel inscribed with "Wesleyan Methodist Chapel" and the date 1834. The door is flanked on each side by a Gothic-style arched window containing Y-tracery, over which is a pointed hood mould. Under the eaves, the bricks form a dentilled pattern.
Inside the chapel is a wooden panelled reading desk on a moulded plinth with an ogee cornice. On each side of the reading desk is a flight of three steps with balusters and newels. The reredos is also panelled, the central panel being wider than the outer panels, and with a semicircular head. The reredos is decorated with motifs including garlands and roses. Also in the chapel are a communion table with communion rails, and a treadle organ.
