never been spoken to in this manner before when eating out, the staff left me speachless. Simple requests like a milky coffee and replacing peas for mushrooms seem quite reasonable requests, yet the staff saw fit to tut and respond with sarcasm. The food was average in flavour and the pie was warm at best, the chips soggy and the... More

Have just spent a week in Swanage and visited Beavers 3 times, twice for snack lunches and once for evening meal. The quality of the food is excellent, the service was excellent...the young girls serving actually looked like they were enjoying their job. You can't reserve a table, but worth waiting around till you could get one.

Had a light lunch here. Staff were all very friendly. Bread was a bit dry on the edges of the sandwiches, but it was a very hot day. Generally very good though.

We have visited before so we knew that the food would be great. And we weren't disappointed, fresh food cooked quickly, happy kids with fresh milkshakes and happy daddy with local cider! A definite must for a trip to swanage.

Had nice fresh crab sandwiches for lunch one day. Junior enjoyed an monster sized ham, egg and chips. So far so good. However, our dining experience was a whole lot worse. The burger was limp and processed. I reckon the sea was closer than the freezer yet the fish served was, without doubt, a frozen, oversized battered fish finger. Junior... More

We have been coming here for about 20 yrs maybe 10 times a year as we love Swanage for walks and our daughter loved the beach as a Tot. We always came here as the food was good and not too dear. However the last trip(it wasn't busy) was poor. The food was a bit tasteless and the chips were... More
