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.
Food was great and the staff were very welcoming and helpful
Fantastic food and lots of the menu that appealed. Good service and food supplies promptly.
Always so well organised. Staff and food are great. Couldn’t ask for a better atmosphere and view
Great atmosphere, superb food, very friendly staff and a safe environment considering the times we are experiencing
Great atmosphere and fantastic food and cocktails
Excellent as always. Thank goodness the Cliff House has re-opened. Food, staff, service all top notch. Thank you all
Excellent! Can’t wait to come back 😊
First meal out since lockdown, and it was a great start. Food was hot and tasty and the service was excellent. Moules were the best I have had. Craft lager was very good too.
Really disappointed no fuss was made of it being my Mum’s Birthday even though I had mentioned it at the time of booking. This was more disappointing as we had spent my Mum’s Birthday there in 2019 and had a Happy Birthday platter board presented which made her day.
Lovely resturant and very nice staff
Staff were superb and the food was excellent.
Excellent as always. Atmosphere slightly subdued but probably due to current circumstances.
Excellent food and service, as always!
always a joy to visit The Cliff House and great to see you back open again Thank you
Lovely food and excellent service. Thank you
Best ever espresso martini served. You have a very talented bar man :)
Disappointed with my main course....unusual for this venue as normally v good
Enjoyed our meal and service. Disappointing to see how dirty the chair upholstery was. Need a good clean or recovering. Not sure how the upholstery is being kept virus free? Value for money as cliff house in gov £10 meal deal. That said we would return again.
Loved it. Considering the Covid-19 situation you wouldn’t have known. Such a gorgeous setting with magnificent views and the food was fantastic. All complimented by a friendly and very cool service. They made us (team) feel really welcome. We even got a complimentary glass of bubbly for our anniversary. Will certainly come back to The Cliff House again. Thank you!
Fantastic atmosphere given the circumstances, very relaxed! Food was really lovely and all the staff are great!
We were there for Sunday lunch. It was a bit hit and miss. The fixed price set menu was good value. We all went for 2 courses, mains and desserts. The pork was lovely, especially the apple sauce, and 2 out of 3 liked the roast beef. The bakewell tart dessert was very good as was the selection of ice creams. Sadly, the other 2 desserts, a brownie with chocolate ice-cream and a blueberry cheesecake with compote were not. It was odd not to have a contrasting flavour ice-cream with the brownie, e.g. vanilla. Chocolate and chocolate was too much. There was also quite a musky unpleasant smell which spoiled the enjoyment of our meal and would put us off returning.
It felt like we were the only table not distanced from others. Others had screens and a gap but we were in the middle of the room where everyone passed. Otherwise fab evening but I would class this as a treat for an occasion as quite expensive to come regularly. Great food.
Great food, lovely atmosphere, very friendly would definitely come here again.
Amazing stress free holiday. Cheers
Loved it!! Perfect location for our anniversary dinner - great views, amazing service and the food was good too! Perfect balance between fine dining and a relaxed coastal vibe.
