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.
Such a lovely afternoon - staff made me & Mum feel so welcome. Always love coming to the Cliff House. Food was lovely too & the marque was a lovely place to be.
Could there be a ‘coffee’ option when booking a particular ‘meal’? Great at dealing with allergies and vegans!
Great food, service and superb location!
Just love it at the Cliffhouse, the atmosphere and food was great, service with a smile and great chilled dining experience 😀
Another great evening in trying times
Meal was nice and views are great looking onto the isle of wight and the needles. Service was slow to start and had to ask to order a drink. We then had to ask for our drinks twice and received them 25 minutes after sitting down. Service from then on was good. Well heated and covered for outside seating
Can’t wait for my next visit.
Lovely meal superb service and delicious food
We had a really excellent evening,everything was superb,great food,wine and service,and it was a nice touch to realise it was my birthday and give me a nice dessert. Thanks very much for providing a wonderful evening again.
Fantastic food all courses tasted amazing and served hot even in the marquee.
Great all round experience. Definitely recommend and will visit again
Brilliant place and great atmosphere in these difficult times! Thank you so much we shall be back! 👍🏼
Amazing service, friendly atmosphere, made to feel special and listened to
Always a pleasure to visit the cliff house, great views and super friendly service.
What a great way to enjoy yourself, with amazing food, and breath taking views. We went back twice in one weekend just to enjoy more of the venue. The new bar is great, if you get some sun to enjoy a drink on the clifftops or under the marquee to enjoy the food.
Great breakfast, good value, friendly service and beautiful view!
Another great evening at The Cliff House! Nice listening to the music before enjoying a lovely meal with great service from all the staff as usual. Really impressed how much effort the owners have made to adapt to the COVID restrictions, definitely my favourite restaurant to visit in The New Forest. Will be back again soon!
Great outside dining!
Extremely well organised. Felt very safe and all Covid regulations were followed. Staff friendly and helpful and food was delicious! Thank you to all, it was our first meal "out"!
Always a good meal and you have definitely made the best you can- can’t wait to get back inside too
Perfect as always
Had a lovely evening meal, very impressed. Service and food were great and the marquee gave protection and a nice atmosphere.
As usual we had a great night with lovely food and amazing service!!! Our friends had never been before and they really enjoyed it! Another big thank you to the whole team at The Cliffhouse - we are so lucky to have you on our doorstep!!!
HUGELY disappointed with the menu choices. It's not what was shown on the website. Not enough choices. Disappointed no muscles/salmon. No burgers. 3 pudding choices - not enough. Small piece of haddock in the fish and chips. Mostly batter. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary and came away very disappointed. We chose this restaurant as last time we had a most delicious and memorable lunch. We won't be going back.
