We were recommended to try the Cauldron Bistro in Swanage, as a group of 4 foodies on a weekend away, we are so very glad we did. The food was delicious, the atmosphere delightful and the owners utterly charming. I will definitely return.

Only open for three days each week, this little gem near the seafront is worth seeking out. The handwritten menus underline the honesty and freshness of the delicious home cooking. Steak was outstanding. if you want a leisurely meal with great ingredients and friendly service, this could be the place for you. We loved it

The second time we visited this restaurant and it is without doubt our favourite restaurant in Swanage and one of our favourites anywhere. The food is all cooked on the premises and is just superb and the atmosphere and service so friendly. We love it and are looking forward to our next visit next time we are in the area.

I've been coming to this delightful little restaurant for the last few years and I must say it is an ever-present joy - truly excellent high-brow food, served with homely charm!

The only drawback is that you really do need to call in advance as the owners are often on travels sampling culinary delights on The Continent to then bring back to us grateful punters!

We visit Swanage a couple of times a year and always book the Cauldron. The quality of the food is exceptional - lovely sauces and seasonings and great quality fish and meat. Also a very good wine list. Can't wait for our next visit.
