A lovely spot for lunch, dog friendly, loads of locally produced goods. Excellent seafood menu but I thought it was a bit expensive, that said the quality was very high. We both had the crab sandwich as we weren't that hungry and it was well...More

This seafood restaurant by the sea is fantastic. Beautiful crab sandwich and seafood as well as great homemade cakes and scones. Fab and relaxed atmosphere, friendly staff and stunning views. Love it!

The Hive never fails to disappoint with the best fresh fish and friendly staff, not to mention sea views. Great place for lunch after a walk on the coastal path.

Tried this for the first time and very impressed. Cake and coffee for 2. Friends coffee could have been hotter, but excellent flavour. Despite being a Friday early afternoon, place was busy. Room for 3 dogs though.

Right on the beach. Great food. Casual atmosphere. Just a little quirk, you need to get in the queue and order and pay for your food

What a find! Looks like an ordinary beach cafe, but the food is to die for! Long queues on a warm May day testify to it's popularity. We managed to get a seat outside and only had to wait half an hour

Been here many times over the years and it's never failed to please. Great food, fresh and local, and views to die for. Winter or summer, autumn or spring, always worth a visit.

The cafe opens at 10:00am for breakfast and 12:00am for lunch. The breakfast has everything from full English to fancy eggs Benedict or avocado on toast. The lunch is almost all fresh fish and seafood but they do do bangers. The crab, lobster or fresh...More

We’re committed to using fresh, locally sourced seafood - when available we serve fish straight from the very shoreline you’ll be eating on. We offer a wide selection of cakes, biscuits and take away treats. All homemade by Melanie and her team at the Hive Beach Micro Bakery based in Burton Bradstock. We’re happy to accommodate large parties of diners and we’re dog friendly but we don’t take reservations so it’s advisable to arrive a little early for lunch as we do get busy!

Please check our website for up to date opening hours because we do open for dinner during the spring and summer season.

Whilst we do our best to reduce the risk of cross-contamination in our restaurants, we cannot guarantee that any of our dishes are free from allergens and therefore cannot accept any liability in this respect. We urge customers with any form of allergies to assess their own level of risk and consume dishes at their own risk. Please ask to speak to the chef on duty if you are in need of any assistance in this regard
