    This is a lovely place to eat (or drink for those out at night!).

    The food is carefully sourced, comes at very reasonable prices and is delicious!!! Alongside the set menu there is a specials board which often has seasonal stuff. They also serve a fantastic cooked breakfast, with a veggie option too.

    It's really a fun place to eat. The atmosphere is laid back and friendly. It's very child friendly too, with lots of things to keep them amused (drawing, games etc.) and dogs are welcomed, often with a gravy bone from the owner!

    Fridays and Saturdays can get busy later in the evening as the bar gets busy. There's an outdoor deck area with views of the sea and the stunning coastline around Swanage and Old Harry. They are planning to re-do the outside soon to offer more protection from the wind (not always a problem, but can be sometimes...)

    Highly recommend this great place - daytimes or evenings :)
