We attended for lunch after my son's christening and had pre-ordered as we were a large party. We have a lovely meal and were well looked after by the waiters and staff. Everyone enjoyed the food and sea views.

We love coming to the Cliff House, only reason for the lower score on Atmosphere was due to the table we were given was very claustrophobic. However the team were excellent and moved us back to the bar. Thank you so much for doing so.

Had a lovely afternoon tea in this fabulous restaurant. We opted for one standard and one flip flop afternoon tea with the right amount of sandwiches, cake and scones with jam and clotted cream. The staff are friendly, polite and very helpful - nothing is too much bother. The restaurant and facilities are bright, clean, welcoming and rustic with a beautiful outlook towards The Isle of White. Thank you for a wonderful afternoon and hope to return soon.

Had a lovely time as always, all 4 of us had a good meal with very good service. Don’t find the new bar area as nice as it was tho. Not cosy at all now but love the resturant.

We held a 14 person celebratory meal for my husband's Birthday in the restaurant. The food was amazing. The staff were amazing. 9 of our guests stayed overnight in the delightful rooms above and enjoyed a great breakfast in the morning. We had a wonderful time and I thoroughly recommend Cliff House as a venue for a celebration.

Wonderful warm welcome and impeccable service attitude. My brother had an injured knee and he treated him (and us) like a precious diamond. Thank you.
