Imagine sitting outside on a sunny terrace, looking across Chesil Beach to the sea, with a glass of tinglingly good wine in your hand and a plate of locally sourced seafood in front of you.
Food is a delectable blend of Mediterranean and British, with an emphasis on locally produced ingredients. The terrace is a perennial suntrap, but even on more ‘British’ days, you can enjoy the fabulous views across the Fleet from inside the restaurant.
Our ingredients are rigorously tested for quality and locally sourced. Favourites include Portland crabs, West Dorset Brewing Company fine ales and Dorset-made Conker Gin.
Served from 7:30am-10am in the restaurant, with a range of help-yourself options, including cereals, yoghurt, fruit and croissants. Even the youngest children will love choosing their own breakfast selections (just don’t be surprised by the combinations they come up with: yoghurt and egg on toast, anyone?) If you need energy for an active day, we also serve a traditional cooked breakfast.
If you’re not out exploring, come for a relaxed lunch in the restaurant between 12pm and 2pm. There is a lighter menu for parents and tasty child-friendly meals, while for those heading out on micro-adventures in Dorset, we also provide filling picnic lunches. On a Sunday, you’ll find a three-course feast of seasonal options to choose from, including home-grown veg and local meat.
We serve a traditional afternoon tea daily, which includes homemade scones, finger sandwiches and a selection of homemade cakes, pastries and treats.
High tea and dining with children
For smaller (and hungrier) children, tea is served at 5pm in the restaurant. Between 6pm and 7.30pm, the whole family can dine together, choosing from the evening menu and a thoughtfully created children’s menu.
Dinner for two
Once the children are in bed, you can enjoy the tantalising menu choices, taste some excellent wines, and get properly waited-on for a change. Choose from mouthwatering meat dishes (the belly of pork, venison loin and confit duck leg are our favourites) and fresh-off-the-boat local seafood such as Lyme Bay scallops and Portland crab.
