About The Watch House Cafe
The only café on West Bay Beach and just yards from the seashore. A perfect Dorset beachfront spot to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or a drink.
Offering cosy and relaxed indoor seating complete with a Wood Fired pizza oven, freshly cooked pasta dishes & daily specials. Bring the outside in, with large bi-folding doors opening on to the heated lower patio & beach top deck showcasing stunning views of the dramatic golden Jurassic cliffs.
Friendly, attentive staff, lovely food & great atmosphere even though it was pouring with rain! Look forward to coming back soon 😊
Great place to relax and enjoy the view. Great food & drink!
Excellent breakfast served by friendly and helpful staff. Will continue to use Watch House as well as its sister restaurants (Clubhouse and Hive Beach) in the local area.
A friendly and welcoming experience, thank you.
Shame the pizza came so late, and my friend was a bit sad about the small garlic bread portion (I thought it was fine!)
Great place to eat. We had fish and chips which was the best fish I have tasted for a long time. Good service and very friendly. Prices a bit high but well worth it. We will definitely eat there again.
Great service and tasty food and drink. The new covered patio area is genius...Well done team!
Great food and service
Fantastic location, friendly staff and great pizza. Drinks a bit overpriced, but overall very good
Great, attentive service in a lovely setting. The fish and chips and children's food was particularly good. We really enjoyed our visit.
Good food and service. Will definitely come back!
Such a shame! It’s our go to place when we visit West Bay (and has been for years) but it was so disappointing and the food was mediocre at best. Service was wonderful as always.
Great service, warmly welcomed and the venue looks great. We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Can’t wait to come back
Great food, great staff, great location
We had a lovely lunch in a great setting thank you ( my 2nd one with you in a week!)
The outside dining area at the Watch House was nicely laid out and looked more fit for purpose than some of the hastily built shelters that are being thrown up to cope with the current regulations. Food and service was as good as expected.
The (Bowie tattoo)waitress was good and the pizza was tasty. The salad came with chicken and bacon which was not indicated on the menu ( and the chicken in it was awful). My aperol spritzer was flat/not good. . Nice atmosphere.
Lovely friendly staff, fish & chips were very good Very Covid friendly as a lot of space between tables
Amazing food service was quick and we will definitely return when we come again to West Bay.
Nice setting, good food and drinks.
