About The Cliff House
We are an independent restaurant, bar and rooms sitting on the cliff top in Barton on Sea, offering panoramic views of the Solent.
You can always be certain of a warm welcome and relaxed feel, our team work hard so all you need to do is sit back and unwind. Whilst we have an informal approach to make everyone feel welcome, we take our food and service very seriously. Fuss free, modern British fayre, made from scratch and delicious every time.
Our team of talented Chefs, use local, seasonal ingredients to produce a creative and contemporary menu in relaxed surroundings. The perfect accompaniment to that stunning view.
If you can drag your gaze away from the coastline, take a peek at our specials' board where the team use their passion for baking, butchery, local fish and seasonal stars, to develop some cracking dishes.
Please note that window tables and our outside terrace area are on a first come first serve basis and can't be guaranteed or booked.
Food was nice service was good. However very over priced.
The Cliff House continue to be innovative and quick to adapt. The Alpine Bar was great fun and a great idea. Well done all the Cliff House team.
Our favourite restaurant - love the ambience and the experience
The cliff house is our first choice venue great staff food good lovely anytime of year
Alpine Bar a great idea just needed some big real Christmas trees and more cushions on seats. But will definitely be returning as food was lovely 😋
Service and food was excellent Friendly and helpful staff. Would definitely recommend
We had a lovely evening at the Cliff House as an early birthday celebration ahead of lockdown. All the staff were friendly and very helpful as was the food and wine. We all had a great time
Always friendly staff great menu with added specials lovely setting ❤️
Fab evening; great food!
As a Birthday meal, without dear friends and family, (due to the critical time in which we are living), I couldn’t have had a nicer evening. Thank you all very much.
Great atmosphere and friendly and very helpful staff
We have been to you several times since buying a Lodge home at Naish. Not only can we just walk to you, but your food, hospitality, views and the most amazing Sunday lunch, after a home cooked one, are just perfect. You will be seeing us a lot in the coming years and I would strongly recommend that others do too.
Yet again The Cliff House didn't disappoint, great lunch before lock down with friends who had travelled to see us. They loved it too and will be back!
Lovely ambience, great food and really friendly staff.
Great location, food and service.
Great food and service, never had a bad word to say.
I reserved a table here for a family meal, well in advance, after having a very pleasant previous visit with friends whilst on vacation. Firstly we were led to a table in a busy, noisy bar area as opposed to the restaurant area. We asked to be moved, and that didn’t seem an issue. The entire meal was rushed, my main course (buttermilk chicken burger) was overcooked, although my husband and daughter both enjoyed their steaks. The ambience was uncomfortable- tacky, tinny music blasted through the restaurant, the staff were not overly attentive, (to us anyway) and the food was just average. It was not the pleasant, friendly experience I received previously. Customer service - lacking. I sensed this restaurant is more ‘a local place for local people’ We won’t be returning, particularly when the wonderful Noisy Lobster is just down the road!
Had lunch there for the first time. Seems a very popular place overlooking the beach. Food was very good. Great, attentive service.
Great night as always!! Made my early birthday celebrations very special!! Thanks to Jordan and the team!
Friendly and attentive staff in a lovely setting. The food was great too.
The Cliff House is now my favourite restaurant. Wonderful food, very pleasant and friendly staff, and I am looking forward to many more visits in the future.
Sunday Lunch was very good, staff were friendly and good.
Excellent service and the best roast beef I've ever tasted.
Lovely restaurant with very friendly and helpful staff - good value and quality - will return on regular basis - Thanks very much for great night out
