Good quality cafe

We had lunch here twice. Excellent home made soup. Good sausage bap. Great chips. This is simply a good plain cafe, well priced with excellent and speedy service and good food. Would happily keep coming back.

Visited here at the weekend with our friends and after the initial greeting we almost turned round and walked out! Our friend stood back to let the waitress get past and received a snarling comment that she was busy serving and to wait a minute! We sat down rather stunned and once we had been brought menus by a charming... More

We arrived in Swanage after an early start from home for day on the coast and were struggling to find anywhere nice for breakfast to set us up for the day until we discovered this little gem. Clean, warm welcome, great value, lovely coal fire Great cooked breakfast and excellent value. We will be coming back

I grew up in Swanage and this is a great place to go for food, one of the best in town i think. It is well located on the high street only a minute from the beach too. The breakfasts are very good and the cream teas are lovely too. The staff are really polite. The place is well priced... More

We had a full english with coffee for eight pounds which was served really quickly and by friendly staff. This is a great restaurant set in Swanage town and they never disappoint with their food. The portion size of the breakfast is spot on, definitely one we recommend.

Unfortunately this place seems to get overlooked a lot by people wanting a nice meal out which really is a shame because I think this restaurant has the perfect mix of good food, fair pricing, friendly staff and comfortable surroundings. It's definitely my restaurant of choice when I want to pop into town for dinner.

We often visit Swanage and always use Beavers as our cafe/lunch place there. We visited on the 2nd January having walked from Corfe Castle Village. As always the cafe was full with a fabulous atmosphere. You can't fault the staff who are attentive without being overbearing. When we arrived the cafe was nearly full, but every member of staff was... More
