We, four of us, had a very pleasant coffee and tea with a small meal. All out side in the Sun over looking the sea. Dog bowls with water provided for dogs, after a long or that walk on the beach or cliff top. While the restaurant was very busy, service was fast and all food cocked on order. Very... More

We attended for lunch as a group of 7. The service was very excellent, but the menu and food was superb. I had a Haddock Souffle followed by the very generous portion of roast beef, The restaurant has excellent views and the whole atmosphere of Cliff House is very warm. Well done.

We visited as part of a large group with a preordered meal. The location is stunning with sea views on both sides. The food was very good quality and nicely presented and the staff were friendly and accommodating.

So many good things to say about The Cliff House - fantastic location, ample parking, warm and friendly team, perfectly presented (and tasty!) food but, for me, the best thing is how accommodating they were for our party of 11s Christmas meal. I have a lot of food intolerances that normally make eating out very difficult. I spoke to the... More
