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.
We had a lovely evening on 22nd December, food and service good Only down side was we couldn't hear the musician in the room we were in . However a group on a table in the room he was playing in left , so we moved into their spot once we finished eating 👍
Excellent New Years Day Lunch. We all very much enjoyed the afternoon.
Excellent. A must place to visit.
We always enjoy our visits to the Cliff House, it has a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and the staff are attentive and welcoming it is the best location.
Really lovely place and nice to see so many different menu choices
Excellent as usual. Thank you 😊
We love going to the Cliff House, it is our favourite restaurant, food is always first class, and the very friendly staff which makes our evening very enjoyable. See you again soon.
food very good but this hotel is not disabled friendly. it has a large gravel area not suitable for wheel chairs and the doorways to narrow such a shame.
Would recommend to anyone. Steaks are top notch!
We use this restaurant on a regular basis and every time the meal is delicious and the staff friendly.
An excellent evening, great food, well presented and good service. Unobtusive background entertainment. Lovely touch with the crackers not being mass produced ones & Eco-friendly. Our first time eating here, although we had been out several times for a drink in the summer. Will certainly return & would definitely recommend. Steve & Julie
Very pleased that there were no noisy children and a nice adult atmospheric. Excellent professional unobtrusive service. Very good beef blade, parsnip soup and Xmas pudding.
Great food, friendly and cosy!!!
Excellent food and service as always
Very good service and the table was perfect with sea views on two sides
We are regular customers and everything met our expectations as usual. We always make a point of booking a table when we are in the area. Never a disappointment however we must remember always to book a table to avoid disappointment
The presentation of food excellent a little pricey thought as Christmas meal complimentary l standard coffee and a mini mince pie would have added a special touch. A lunch at a top hotel in Bournemouth with these additions only 22.75.
Extremely happy with everything. The service was excellent - attentive and friendly but never intrusive. The food was absolutely wonderful.
Lovely place, lovely people.
This was our third visit to The Cliff House. We visited on a Saturday lunchtime for a Christmas celebration meal from the set menu. The food was delicious, the atmosphere and ambience were fantastic, the service first rate (as always) and the cost was good value. See you again soon!
Excellent Sunday lunch. Friendly professional service, great food and a vibrant relaxed atmosphere. The whole experience seems to be slightly more modern than a couple of years ago and its feels like a restaurant that is successful, confident and capable, long may it continue.
We eat with you regularly, always great food, service and value
We had a great Christmas Party at the Cliff House - the food and drink were fab and we look forward to the next time we can celebrate at this lovely restaurant!
Excellent food and service. Super position overlooking the sea with views of the Isle of Wight and Hengistbury Head
Lovely welcome as always - another enjoyable lunch Thank you
