We came here last Sunday for my brother's birthday meal with family and we weren't disappointed! The waiting staff were welcoming, lovely and polite. We were all very satisfied with our food, generous portions. I had the crab linguine and it has now become one of my favourites, it was so delicious. I also pinched some of my partners triple...

Busy Saturday in the fine autumn weather so we weren't surprised how busy they were. But burger and chips, Greek salad, didn't disappoint. And the outlook over the sea is difficult to beat.

Stopped here after walking along the coastal path having promised husband and child cake at the other end. Nice choice of fresh cakes including gluten free and young son wanted icecream where they were more than happy for him to purchase from the main shop and eat at the table with our drinks. Clean location and friendly staff with views... More

Good service with a smile. Teas, scones and cakes brought to tables outside with the most fantastic views to Poole Bay and the Isle of Wight. Dog friendly (inside and out) and good access for pushchairs and wheelchairs.

I was so disappointed in July and wrote a "poor" review. This time I phoned ahead and asked if they had fish (apart from fish and chips) on the menu. They said they did on the specials menu so preordered two scallops main course and one mussels. We arrived on time and were served quickly. We all had Dorset apple... More

We went on a Saturday evening when they do evening meals. Al in all a great place to eat for the views and the friendly staff. The food has rather too many chips for my liking but the proteins - fish, meat and vege options are always well cooked and portion size is good. The soup is always a good... More

We had just two coffees. So, it's difficult to say much. Our order was dispensed speedily and the drinks were of good quality - enjoyed overlooking a panoramic view of the coastline.

Fantastic location with wonderful views. Brought family here for lunch and was not disappointed. Burgers were delicious and triple cooked chips were perfect. Ploughmans was top drawer. Service was excellent. All in all a great dining experience.

Fantastic location yes. Fantastic service no. You would think that ordering two pots of tea could not possibly go wrong. Well it did. We had a long wait at the counter despite the place being half empty. Then the wrong tea arrived. Last time we went there, they had run out of some things on the menu. How they cope... More
