Back to The Raft for the second year and it didn't disappoint. The six of us (2 adults and 4 children) were very well looked after. Pizza's and burgers were scrummy and the kids loved their 'divine hot chocolates'. Coffee - best in the area.....if we are this way again next year we will definitely visit again.

Lovely little restaurant so book early. Mauritian owner is delightful and remembered us from a previous visit last year. Small menu but all the better for that. Good locally caught fish dishes. Excellent pizzas 50p donation to breast cancer for bottle of water which is a great idea

Booked this restaurant in advance as we were visiting Milford On Sea whilst on holiday.
Was greeted by a really friendly guy, shown to our table (booth) straight away.
Great atmosphere, fantastic tunes playing in background.
Really enjoyed the various pizzas myself and my family chose, followed by the delicious cheesecake..
We all left very happy and full :))

Great atmosphere and friendly service, but food only disappoints.

When the best thing you order is "Chicken Thai green curry calzone", you know something is wrong. The blue fin board consisted mainly of deep fried "Iceland" quality white bait. The swordfish burger we ordered as a main wasn't a burger at all - but a piece of fish sandwiched between two wafer thin pieces of pitta bread. Beware - Apparently this is how all burgers are served now as the owner wants to do something a bit different. Different can be good, but not in this case!

We have come four times in the last year (relatives live in Milford) and unfortunately the food is going downhill. Next time I'm afraid we won't be back.

i was taken here for my Birthday on 12th August by my Fiancé. We have eaten in here before and it was lovely. we were shown to our table by the owner (i think), he is very warm and welcoming. When it came to ordering, he persuaded me to have the beetroot coleslaw along side my chicken burger, and it was absolutely divine. i can not say a bad word about this restaurant, and i would thoroughly recommend it to anyone
