We had a lovely evening in the terrace tent, service was brilliant and food was excellent, no Barton beer left for my hubby but everything else was great. Celebrating my Dad’s 76th birthday. We will definitely come again.

Great evening. We had problems with a couple of our steaks (chewy etc) which we pointed out to Jordan. The steaks the week before were superb but Monday’s weren’t great. Apart from that the rest was lovely.

Perfect. As always! Food, drinks and service is the best in the area if not the south! Staff make you feel welcome and the covid protocols in place make you feel safe yet keep the charm and atmosphere that we love about the cliff house. We would come here everyday if we could. If you don’t go, even if it’s just for a drink you’d be mad!

We enjoyed our lunchtime visit & found the majority of staff friendly & welcoming. Our only cause for concern was that some staff serving food were not wearing their masks correctly.

The Cliff House is my happy place; it’s never put a foot wrong! All of the staff are incredibly attentive, smiley, friendly and knowledgable. Jordan in particular is an absolute gem. So very happy to see you back open, and nailing the COVID restrictions. The terrace is beautifully done, cosy and comfy, and the table service was seamless. Thank you for a super Sunday! xxx

Thank you for a wonderful Birthday meal. The outdoor eating area was lovely and it was so nice to watch the beautiful sun set over Christchurch harbour. We'll definitely be back again!

Only recently moved to Barton we were keen to visit the local eateries, although we have visited the Cliffe House before. The owners have spent considerable time and money improving the outside and the venue, food and customer service was 1st class. We will be visiting on a very regular basis!
