With Swanage being a family holiday getaway ever since a was born, I can't remember a time where I didn't visit and go to Beavers. Suits all ages and has a variety of different options on the menu. Little pricey but will always go back.

Staff were lovely and venue clean, however the menu is an expensive cafe menu and doesn't vary much. Regular specials but they were the same as the last time we visited 6 months ago.Your typical seaside "restaurant"
