Enjoyable food / quick service

We love coming to Swanage and it wouldn't be the same without visiting Beavers, yes there is limited space, but I've never left here without enjoying what has been put in font of me, always piping hot (with hot food) and with excellent service with friendly young staff. Its always clean and good... read more

Very nice restaurant serving good home made food that was very reasonably priced. We visited twice and on both occasions food and service was excellent.

I have been to Beavers a few times, now and always make a point of going there whenever I'm in Swanage. The food is wonderful and very reasonably priced. Their home-made sticky toffee pudding and cream (the softest cream you will ever eat!) is simply fantastic. The staff are really friendly; it's like popping into a friend's house, whether it...

Went for a quick lunch today. Waitress wasn't desperately friendly and told us they didn't have any pickle when asked for a cheese and pickle sandwich. Admittedly the request was off menu, but I was a bit surprised. Food was ok, but a few flies in the salad spoilt it. Probably wouldn't go back, which is a shame. Cakes looked... More

Been here many times and my son insists we eat here as he likes it so much. This time ordered the fish. Had to return as not cooked. Was replaced fine and reduction made. Other people in my party also said food was not so good as before.

We have been going here on a weekly basis as the staff are always welcoming and the quality of the produce excellent quality and value for... More
