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.
The staff were lovely, the food was of a very good quality but unfortunately we found the portions to be very small and therefore not good value for money.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Very good Sunday lunch.
Great service and lovely food. Might want to look at your online booking form as I definitely booked fro 5 people but on arrival you had only 2 noted. It wasn't a problem though and you gave us a very good table.
The recent renovation is brilliant. Love it even more than before. The French waiter was brilliant and the food was as food as ever. Bring back the burger though.
This was an unexpected treat. After travelling down from London to visit local friends we stopped here for an evening meal. We had a very warm welcome, excellent food and brilliant service. The staff were very friendly and the food choices and quality of the food was excellent. We loved the ‘casual’ but professional service, and the starter, main, dessert and wine were all amazing! We can’t wait to go back and thoroughly recommend!
Lovely atmosphere and good service. Had to ask about Specials on the day not easy to see Special board.
Our first time back since the extension and it is better than ever. Our favourite place.
Fab evening as always, very welcoming and well looked after throughout
The staff were exceptional! They were sincere and had a bit of personality, none of the over the top and fake smiles that are far too common these days. The food wasn't 'bad', it was 'ok'. However, with everything else being so good, it stood out as the weakest element of the evening.
Excellent service and atmosphere throughout. Friendly but highly efficient staff. The best place along the South Coast to visit for food and drinks.
We enjoyed a delicious lunch and look forward to returning! Two of our party are vegetarian and the winter root and fruit salad is a stand out star. Thank you to all of the Cliff House Crew for a very happy and memorable experience xXx
That has to rate as one of the best meals we have enjoyed in recent times. It is a rare occasion when we can get our son and daughter in law to lunch and at the end of the meal his comment was “where have you been hiding this place Dad.?” Just excellent
Lovely views over the bay from the restaurant. The food is excellent and a set menu is an option if you don't want the Al a Carte. Thoroughly enjoyed the evening and would definitely recommend.
Almost perfect, just could have done with some bread with the starters.
Cajun halloumi dish was absolutely delicious! Sunday lunch roast was very good, but the Chef should check the plates on the pass to make sure there are no burnt offerings ie four cremated carrot pieces! All staff very friendly and service was not blinkered in any way.. very refreshing. Best of luck with this new venture.
excellent service, staff very attentive
This was our 2nd visit in 5 days - lovely atmosphere, great food and service and a really enjoyable evening. Can’t wait to come again.
An amazing birthday meal with fabulous food and brilliant service. The set menu was absolutely delicious especially the strawberry panacotta and at £20 for 3 courses it is a total bargain. Highly recommended.
Newly refurbished - Looks fab. Great food. Great cocktails! Great staff. Roll on the summer for the amazing views and outside bar.
We will definitely be back for more.
Can’t fault it really. Great 3 Course Lunch, fantastic views of the Needles, great Service and very friendly atmosphere.
Very enjoyable stay after an excellent Sunday lunch. Requested a table by the window and hoped that as we were resident that we might have enjoyed a priority for lunchtime seating. Our room was a little tired but very comfortable. Excellent breakfast and great service throughout.
have been eating here for last 2 years.Always a pleasure.Staff very friendly & food lovely.
