Wedding reception

The occasion was our daughter's wedding reception for 106 guests in a marquee at Durlston Country Park. Ian and Emily engaged totally with the spirit of the day and went the extra mile to make sure that it was all a great success. They were very flexible on the fare to be provided and their... read more

Ate here while on holiday in the area and was on a day where the weather was good enough to sit outside. This is probably the best aspect of the place, and it does give you great views on both sides. The food was surprisingly good, and the price was not too bad either. Service was a bit variable, with... More

My wife and I tied the knot a couple of weeks ago at the beautifully-located Durlston Castle with the venue and superbly presented food organised by Ian and his efficient team. Well over a hundred guests attended and, without exception, were bowled over by the sheer volume and quantity of food supplied served by very attentive Seventh Wave teamers, which... More

Had dinner at this restaurant last night as it is a beautiful spot to sit on a summer evening. There is not a huge choice, several fish dishes but what we had was delicious ie fish and chips which my husband said was the best he'd ever had and hake on a bed of spinach and sun dried tomatoes with...

We visited as a family and all enjoyed the delicious food and breathtaking views! All staff from the lady who took our order at the till to the very friendly and attentive guy who served our food (with beard) were lovely. He gave us some interesting information on the Swanage area. Thanks 😀 We'll be back next summer!

We strolled up from Swanage via the wooded footpath with the idea of lunching in the restaurant at Durlston Country Park and we weren't disappointed. If you don't feel like walking you can catch a bus from Swanage or there is a car park if you choose to drive. The venue itself occupies a great position, is light and airy,... More

Very nice food and good service. Worth a visit for fish lovers. Beautiful setting by the sea, lovely atmosphere. Need more variety of drinks and menu but they did well what they served

It is definitely well worth the walk to get here. Excellent food choices for lunch. The grilled sardines were superb. Views are stunning and the staff were all very charming.

It's a little expensive for what you get, but then the views from here are spectacular. We had panini's which were tasty but nothing special. The Dorset tea is nice.

had lunch here a year ago. We had a warm herb panini with bacon, Brie and cranberry followed by a cream tea. We decided to have the same again this year as we really enjoyed it last time. What a difference. No herbs in panini. Not much filling. Bacon fatty. Scone overcooked and dry. Very disappointing and expensive. Would we... More
