Once again we visited Beavers and again had a very good lunch. This time we opted for Roast pork loin with all the trimmings, and it was up to the usual standards. Don't hesitate to try Beavers when in Swanage you will not be disappointed.

After a long shopping trip we stopped off to put our feet up and relax. We had two coffees and found the service very good and the value and quality good too. Would return as they do have a good range of food.

Friendly staff and the food was nice. Busy little place and we were served very fast, another Family was already in our seats by the time I came back from changing my babies nappy! Not a leisurely experience but was fine

I eat here every time I come to Swanage. It never disappoints, and is proper food. Nothing to dislike.. honest to goodness food in a "home cooked" style. I really like eating here.,

Came here for a cooked breakfast whilst on holiday. The staff were very helpful and immediately offered to take our buggy and put it out of the way. Service was quick and food was hot. I had the half breakfast which was plenty for me.
