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.
We had a lovely lunch and will definitely be back again as soon as we can.
Awesome hot dogs in the Alpine Bar, thanks a mill!
We love the Alpine Bar and the steins of beer. And the Espresso Martinis. Fabulous. We are so looking forward to heading back as soon as we are allowed.
Fabulous food and excellent service, this will always be my go-to restaurant any time of day Well done all involved in setting up your outdoor area so quickly.
Had a wonderful meal in Xmas Eve the staff were very attentive.
Wonderful food lovely friendly service been here three times now and each meal exceptional hot fresh food highly recommend
The service is always amazing. You can tell the team genuinely enjoy working there. Food is also top class every time.
Best lunch out in a long time. The alpine atmosphere was amazing. We loved every second
We love The Cliffhouse and have enjoyed our visits there every time we go. We would like to thank all the staff for making our visits so memorable and we consider this as our local to go to. Have a merry Christmas and we will see you once everything back to normal again John and Sylvia
We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening leading up to Christmas. Even though the weather was wet, we were still warm and dry in the Alpine bar. The staff were very attentive, the atmosphere and food were great. A lovely start to our Christmas 😊
Excellent as always.
The place was very nice, great way to allow people to have a meal with loved ones in the current times My only comment would be that the prices were quite high. As it was a one off we didn't mind but pricey on some items. Staff very friendly and jolly.
Fantastic service, just a bit of a shame it’s 2hrs only, would 3hrs be better? Had a great time and definitely will be back.
It was quite quiet in the restaurant, obviously due to the current climate and being a Monday. Service and food as ever really good. Some slightly more uplifting Christmassy music would have aided the atmosphere. The staff were lovely and brought out a special board with cake, a candle and all sang happy birthday to my deaf brother who lip reads quit well 😊 Thank you it was his 65th and cheered him up as he lives alone and can feel quite anxious and vulnerable.
Another great night. The Alpine Bar was inventive, great atmosphere, attentive staff.A different and fun experience in these dark days. Fantastic to see smiles on people’s faces. We felt very safe.
Fun evening in the Alpine Bar even if a bit windy... lovely food and great service as usual!!
As always amazing food and service at the Cliffhouse. We tried the Alpine Bar for my daughter’s birthday and it was brilliant very warm and cozy and a great atmosphere. We will definitely be back we had a lovely time .
Once again we had a meal we could not fault, served by a very pleasant staff as always,who were if anyone wonders all wearing masks. The seating was well spaced and the heaters made it a very pleasant place to sit. I feel we really should try and support the Cliff House as they have really gone the extra mile in these very difficult times.
We had a lovely evening and staff were very friendly and accommodating. Food was lovely as was the wine
Fantastic as always.
We had a problem with one of our steaks but Adam kindly removed it from the bill. Jordan and team looked after us well and we had a great time .
It’s really great to see a restaurant adapting to the environment and continuing to thrive. A great night out as always!
