What a find !

This was a lovely find during our walk through the woods. Just had a drink but when we visit Swanage again will go for a meal. The food, presentation and choice looked very good. Staff very good, service was slow but they were very busy and we weren't in a hurry so it didn't matter. Decor was very... read more

During our Victorian Walk from Swanage we decided to stop for a coffee at Durlston Castle within Durlson Country Park. I was very pleased that the restaurant offered soya milk as some places look at you like your mad when you ask for it! We enjoyed a lovely soya latte and cappuccino and a piece of cake which was YUM!... More

After a good walk from Swanage along the coastal path, the Seventh Wave is a good place to stop for a snack to recharge your batteries.

Out for a walk with my fiancee, son and my sister and we thought we'd pop in for some lunch. I have a very fussy child and some places are funny about taking your own sandwiches in for children but when I asked if it would be okay if he ate his own packed lunch whilst we ordered food the... More

I wrote a review about the potential health and safety issues in this place a few months ago. Linked to their method of cueing by expecting customers to cue for their orders in the same area where the staff are rushing and carrying hot drinks etc to customers sitting at tables. This area is just by the main entrance door... More

Really this place is a pleasure to visit every time. Great menu serving food all day until 5pm, reasonable prices and better than anything open at lunch in Swanage.

There are few places in the country with such a brilliant setting and beautiful views and so one might expect the restaurant itself to match the location, but sadly it doesn't... The menu is good, a suitable variety of options and reasonably priced, supposedly locally sourced. Having to order at the bar is poor, given the suggested class of the... More

Both myself and my husband had a cream tea and my little ones shared a toasted tea cake. The cream tea was absolutely delicious and the service was excellent.

AMAZING CHIPS!! Regular visitors - walking from Swanage, excellent paninis, good value for money, friendly and the best views ever. We've been regular visitors to the Globe for over 20 years and it's great to have some consistently good food waiting for us at the other end. AND THE MOST AMAZING CHIPS.

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 service was second to none.... More
