Great staff service but the only thing is that dogs are not allowed to be inside and have to be outside which we had a coffee and it was freezing. But it has great views and it gets very busy on bank holidays and at the weekend

On our morning walk thank god the shop was open. Great cup tea and coffee. Also I had a lovely sausage roll instead of my normal fresh pastie. Sat outside in the winter sun! Looks like Thursday for the pastie!

What on Earth has happened to this place? It used to be terrific not so long back, but after a really poor experience here in the Summer, we had another poor time yesterday. We called in after the customary lovely walk with a view to coffee and cake. Unfortunately, I am allergic to Wheat/Gluten and was told by the Senior... More

Visited on Thursday after Christmas on a lovely sunny afternoon, very busy but seated after a short wait, ordered paninis and fish and chips, all very tasty with good size portions. It's a 30 minute walk from Hengistbury Head car park or short ferry trip from Mudeford.

We all had mulled wine and it was a bit more like hot vimpto. Not bad really but for £4 a cup you'd expect real wine!

I love walking to this place - beautiful setting and the food looks good and people seem happy with it. I call in for a coffee ( often cold) , a hot chocolate - unbearably sweet and today - a mulled wine ( hot fruit juice!). Once I bought an iced coffee - it was so sweet, I felt my... More

Been coming here for years. never been disappointed with the food. Mussels are always worth ordering. Burgers are good if a little on the small side. Service even when busy has never been a problem and the staff are young and trendy and seem to enjoy working there. Overlooks the quay and getting a table outside is never too difficult... More

We've only ever popped in for a quick coffee or refreshment, but this time we stayed for food and wish we'd done it sooner. Not cheap, but the setting alone is worth the extra cost. The staff are brilliant, very attentive and the food was amazing. We're back over the festive period and so wanted to pop in then, but... More

This place is at a the end of a 2 mile walk on Hengistbury Head and is on the beach and in the midst of lots of beach huts. It is a lovely setting but it is busy and noisy and booked up most of the time. The food is average - they have a full bar - so this... More

Had lunch at the beech house. It's an interesting journey to get there. A 2 mile walk from the nearest car park, road train or a short ferry trip from Mudeford. The cafe is a great location on a sunny day. And of course will be packed as a result. After October it's open on selected days and closed in... More
