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.
We had a fabulous lunch, celebrating my husbands birthday with friends. Food and service was excellent. Can’t wait to return.
Nice experience--some items a tad expensive versus similar items elsewhere but not discouraging so.
Service was great and staff really friendly. Great main courses and B&B pudding but the Mint Sundae was disappointing 😢. Had a sundae a few months ago here and it was lovely. This one was mainly cream, cake, lots of air and a tiny portion of ice-cream. Sundaes should be packed with icecream. I didnt complain as staff were missing at the time but will next time.
Best meal I’ve had locally. Will definitely return.
Such a fantastic experience. Loved it so much we bought a voucher online that night as a gift for my parents.
Excellent meal. Will come again.
We love it here and always visit when in Barton. We’ll be back soon
A great birthday meal will definitely be coming back made to feel very welcome on arrival all staff very friendly and worked so hard thank you to everyone of you
Excellent all round will be back, definitely
Wonderful views, attentive friendly service, delicious food. Whenever we are in the area we have a meal at The Cliff House. Love it.
Fantastic staff and service as always x
Absolutely loved the Cliff House - location, food, attentive and friendly staff and would (and already have) highly recommend it! If I had to be picky, the peach Melba pud was disappointing for the money 😊
Took my best friend for afternoon tea which absolutely wonderful - service at cliff house was first class :)
We had a lovely time on Saturday for my daughters birthday. So lovely to have a special lunch with her ( she’s 1of 5 ) The staff were fantastic and couldn’t have been more conscientious if they tried . You have a super team and should be very proud . A beautiful setting just perfect .
We had a lovely time. Food was excellent. Will definitely be back again.
Lovely meal, with great service & ambience
1st time here for lunchtime. Excellent food & attention from staff. Would highly recommend
Table was reserved online which was easy to do, I found that receiving an email as a reminder and prompt to confirm or cancel the reservation was handy. Complimentary glass of fizz upon arrival and a chocolate anniversary well wish from the kitchen was a lovely touch for celebrating our first wedding anniversary. Gorgeous, fresh tasty food and fantastic service on a busy Wednesday evening. Thank you
We had a greatnl lunch with friends. The food and service were excellent. We'll be back..
Is always a fantastic dining experience
Our second visit to cliff house. Both times we have eaten off the tapas menu. Can't wait to sample the rest of the menu.
Not for the first time we had an excellent meal, very good service and a lovely atmosphere. We will continue to recommend to friends & family.
I must say we found the food exceptional, all the staff were attentive and friendly, and we had a lovely view to top it off, we will be back. Many thanks to all the staff.
Very attentive staff and beautiful food in lovely surroundings. We had a wonderful evening - thank you.
Warm welcome with good food - a little gem!
