“Excellent meal and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2014

It was our first visit to the Quarterdeck and there will be many more. The table we had was next to the open doors to the terrace area and we had a nice cooling breeze which was lovely on a warm evening. The food was excellent and good size portions and a very reasonable price. The staff were all very friendly and couldn't do enough for you. It reminded us of being in France on a warm summer evening. We had the added advantage of it being the Vintage Vehicle Show and we had many vintage vehicles and traction engines steaming past. Cant say anymore. Its a gem.

“Serving food all day and a great burger!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

The best thing about the Quarterdeck on the day we visited West Bay was it was open and serving food after 3 in the afternoon, which no one else was. Had the 8oz burger, which was great, chips were fantastic, would thoroughly recommend. All the other meals we saw served looked good too.

“Excellent meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

It was a busy Saturday night in West Bay and the three of us hadn't booked anywhere to eat in advance. Having been turned away from 3 places who had no tables, we were getting a bit desperate. We needn't have worried as the staff at this tavern gave us a warm welcome and immediately showed us to a table in what looked like the living room. The service, food and final bill were all very acceptable. A bottle of Chilean Sauvignon Blanc (well chilled and very pleasant) was well priced at £12.75. My Dorset apple cake came with a jug of lovely, creamy custard. Would happily return.

“Needs a good clean”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

We popped in for breakfast. Had there not been people behind us we would have turned around & left. The whole place needs a good scrub & a lick of paint. The breakfast arrived swimming in grease with congealed baked beans & cold toast. Give it a miss :(
