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.
Always a delight
Another fantastic meal and service, just like our previous visits.
We had the special lunch menu. Great tasty food and great value but check whats on as only 2 main choices so may not be to your taste.
Always friendly staff and excellent food
All round great experience - a very enjoyable couple of hours spent at the Cliff House! This is not criticism but more personal choice - the Belvoir ginger beer is inferior to Fentimens in my opinion. Also one of the party did not like the taste of the draft beer. We will be back soon to sample more delicious food and enjoy the very friendly service!👍
We eat at The Cliff House regularly & the staff have always been extremely helpful, changing our table on Sat eve because my mother was chilly where we were.
Very enjoyable lunch. Good polite, friendly and efficient service. Food well presented and good quality
It was a very good evening. Food and wine was superb, Max was on good form and the service was excellent as always. Very reasonable price as well. Thank you!
A lovely meal with friendly service will probably bring the dog next time
Delicious food, great service, although wine by the glass a little pricey. Will definitely return.
I like the emails that I received confirming the reservation, right up to the day we came. Just a couple of small comments. We had to ask for the butter as there wasn't any on the table and one of my party of 9 didn't have a side plate. However all of us enjoyed the experience and I have already got two further visits planned.
Good food but you really needed to add a vegetable side as the vegetable accompaniment was very small. Prices creeping up a bit
Fantastic food, very friendly staff, great service. Would definitely recommend.
very good as always
A really enjoyable evening. Food and wines excellent.
The school chairs were a bit uncomfortable for our party of seven and we might have been better seated in the dining room as at this time of year the view is not as important as a bit of comfort. Food and drink available were excellent though. Service very pleasing.
This was our second time at The Cliff House and again it didn’t disappoint. We were so surprised when the waitress recognised us and asked where our daughter was which was so lovely. The food is cooked to perfection and I really lovely menu for a reasonable price. We had such good service and the view and atmosphere make it a perfect place for Sunday lunch.
Excellent service and great food. Have already recommended your restaurant to friends.
Would have got 5 stars for food & drink except real ales on offer but understand why you only have one on.
Excellent meal in a great location, the no fuss friendly atmosphere was very refreshing and added to the occasion.
Need to get the carpet and artex replaced. Story 😬
wE HAD A VERY ENJOYABLE LUNCH, GOOD FOOD, WELL PREPARED AND VERY GOOD SERVICE
Very enjoyable lunch. Good food, good service. Perfect!
We couldn’t have picked a better day to have lunch in this lovely restaurant, food was delicious, service first class and the atmosphere was perfect. We had a table with a view and as the weather was sunny and warm we finished off the afternoon with a drink in the garden listening to Lucas Raye with friends
