“Why have we not eaten here before??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 June 2014

OK the weather was fab today, perfect for sitting in the sun at Gee Whites. We were tempted in by the lure of oysters but ended up having not only those (6 plus 2 glasses of cava for £12.50) but also the amazing seafood platter (a whole crab, shell on prawns, crayfish, cockles, mussels, whelks, brown shrimp and king prawns, a whole ciabatta and a bowl of chips £25) Wow!! How great it was too. As seafood lovers we could not fail to be impressed by the meal as a whole. The freshness of the seafood (crucial), the speed and efficiency of service, the cost (it was reasonable) and clean facilities (ok its newish but you could see it was all being kept up to a good standard). A fab meal on a lovely day with a great view.

“Another great seafood meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014

We visit Swanage each year and always head for Gee Whites. A transformation from last year which many of the locals do not like. They did fit a thatched roof but the Council being the Council insisted it came down. Anyway that aside the food and the staff are as good as ever. Thank you

“Fab seafood restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2014 via mobile

We love Gee Whites, always made to feel very welcome and served fantastic food. It's even better when the sun is shining......
We've never had a bad snack, the blanch-bait is plentiful and tasty, tempura king prawns have a wonderfully light and crispy batter the salt and pepper calamari are fab and the mussels wonderful.

We just popped by for a drink and went onto the top deck. A great view of Swanage. Nice ambience and good service. Looking forward to coming back for a meal.

“all beautifully cooked and a low, low price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2014

Five of us had Sunday lunch here. Sitting next to the sea in the sun eating lovely, inexpensive food...what more could you want ? The food we ate ranged between chip butty, fish & chips,and mussels. All well cooked, service friendly and efficient. The refurbishment has been well done and there has been no price hike. As frequent visitors to Swanage, we will be making many more visits here.
