This “magical cliff-top haven” on Dorset’s ‘Jurassic Coast’ combines the attractions of “superb views” with “exciting but traditional dishes” using “excellent locally sourced ingredients”. It offers a “slightly more refined experience than the neighbouring (and highly rated) Hive Beach Café”.
London creatives have a new reason to visit Dorset’s Jurassic Coast – a “tastefully refurbished” two-year-old clifftop hotel from the tastemakers behind the mythic Groucho; even those who feel that “the food (albeit decent) needs to go up a notch” say that “the location and sea view alone make this worth a visit”.
This year-old venture from the people behind London medja hangout The Groucho has a marvellous location (a chi-chi clifftop hotel overlooking Dorset’s Jurassic Coast). Even a reporter who found the “menu a bit dull”, rated the food well, “plus there are happy hour cocktails!”
It’s not complicated, fresh seafood from the sea at our toes, great produce from the countryside at our backs. Local when it’s best, British when it’s right, international when it’s called for. Naturally seasonal and with no fleeting fads or fickle food fashions – whether you need a poached egg on toast or a six course banquet, our acclaimed restaurant is bespoke and classically modern. We like a well dressed table, but we don’t stand on any ceremony; if you want one course, three puddings, to work your way through the whole menu alphabetically or topographically that’s fine. Our view is that dinner takes as long as you need it to.
Bookings for up to 12 guests can be accommodated in the restaurant or for larger parties get in touch for private dining and events.

The Seaside Boarding House has two private rooms.
The library can comfortably seat 2-10 people & the Pitt-Rivers Room that can seat 12-90. A range of AV equipment can be provided and any combination of food and drink to fit your day. Or take a break, have lunch in the restaurant or out on the terrace. We can even provide a picnic on the beach.
The library is a small intimate space lined with shelves of books and an open fireplace. Perfect for small meetings of up to 10 people on a round table or 16 in a theatre style. The Pitt-Rivers Room can seat up to 90 in a theatre style or 60 for a meeting requiring tables. This room has a dedicated entrance if required, a small raised stage and private bar area.
With sufficient notice it is possible to take the entire hotel on an exclusive basis between October & March from Sunday afternoon up until Friday. From April this is restricted to Monday until Thursday afternoon.
It is possible to take the whole of The SBH over a weekend but the opportunity is restricted to 6 dates throughout the year.
The Seaside Boarding House Hotel Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Amazing spot on the cliff overlooking the sea but the experience was underwhelming. The service was new and awkward and the food rather disappointing."
