We had a wonderful Sunday lunch. Food and service were excellent. We were there for a special occasion and the staff presented the birthday girl with a surprise cocktail. All staff were friendly and attentive. Would thoroughly recommend and will visit again.

Always a pleasure to dine at Cliff House!
Made very welcome. Not many restaurants make you feel special but this one does. Nothing is too much trouble.
Had an excellent meal on New Years Day. All staff we really friendly and helpful. A lovely atmosphere.
Top marks to all your staff each and every one had the right mix of friendliness and professionalism it was a packed evening but they still made us feel important and nothing was to much trouble, well done!
Driven past many times, wished I’d stepped through the door before! Food and service excellent topped off with an amazing view. No hesitation in recommending the Cliff House.
Warm welcome - Super service - Fab food - Most excellent all round! Can't wait for the summer evenings to sit outside on the sofa with a Flip Flop G&T, watching the sun go down into the sea.
Service, brilliant as usual Food excellent as always Party was for 19 all had a great time. Ps: you must try the flip flop gin ❤
Outstanding lunch in a fabulous location thanks for making our day
Great food and great staff
Nice afternoon spent with my wife celebrating her birthday. Tentative staff and well presented food. We will be returning there with our friends and family in the future.
We would like to have seen more Xmas decorations crackers on the table and maybe quiet Seasonal music. All in all a very good meal but no Xmas atmosphere.
My daughter and her boyfriend were visiting for the weekend, so we booked a table for Sunday Lunch. They loved it too!
A group of 8 of us. We had a superb meal, which was served efficiently, it was nicely presented & cooked. well. We would definitely recommend you in the future. The staff were all friendly and willing to help. See you soon !
If you want a really terrible dining experience, please look elsewhere!go somewhere else!!
Always our "go to" restaurant for all special occasions. The staff are amazing, as is the food plus you get one of the most wonderful views on the South Coast.
What a wonderful night, the service was excellent despite how busy the restaurant was, food was spot on and the live music was perfect .. a great way to kick off the Christmas celebrations ... thank you
We found the echo made it impossible to talk, such a shame because, food, staff and service were second to none. It is a shame that you cannot find a way to get the acoustics right so that the old habit of talking over a meal can continue.
Lovely meal but the food could of been a bit hotter , also we sat by the window which had a lovely view but it was cold in the restaurant so much so that we left to have coffee elsewhere
we have been a regular customer since you opened the service and food is unique always a pleasure to dine there
