“Unbeatable food, Fantastic staff & Service”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

After being totally dismayed with the service at Pebble Beach, we chanced upon this restaurant on the sea front - what a fantastic find! Food that would grace any Michelin Star establishment and the most pleasant and attentive staff - if I had to mark this restaurant out of 10 I would give it 20. Superb. Thank you!

We went for the fish and fizz, very fresh fish, cooked to order. Very pleasant outlook over the sea. The meal was reasonable and the staff worked very hard and were very pleasant.

“Tasty, locally sourced food + fantastic views”
Reviewed May 31, 2013

Despite its unassuming exterior, the food and service were excellent! The menu was based on seasonal, locally sourced produce and really did impress us. Our starters were smoked venison (smoked onsite) with local betroot and local asparagus (cooked to perfection) with a soft-boiled egg in a lovely coating. Main courses were duck with rhubarb jus and steak - again, all cooked to perfection. The service was of the kind you'd expect in a more expensive restaurant, so it was a pleasant surprise to experience. We live locally, so will definitely be visiting again. Noticed that they also had a "casual dining" menu that was around £10-12 for a main course - when you consider that the Harvester/pizza places are a similar price to this, you really do get your money's worth. I can't recommend this place highly enough...... and it's miles better than Pebble Beach!

“International walking groups welcome”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

My group of 48 people from Germany, France, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, Ireland and the UK were welcomed in great style at the Cliff House restaurant. At short notice, the kitchen gave us a superb 3 course dinner, with local ingredients impressing those visitors who had never visited the UK before ; the very polite and efficient service was a credit to the hotel management and the dining room had been beautifully prepared for our arrival. Our group members loved the clifftop location of the hotel at sunset, looking west over Bournemouth Bay and east over to the Isle of Wight. We would thoroughly recommend this hotel restaurant in this beautiful area of the English coast.
