Welcome To Our Restaurant

Open 7 days a week.


Cliffhanger Cafe was built in 2007. We offer a truly unique dining experience for the whole family, whether it's an intimate meal for two, or a family celebration or special occasion.


Open from 9am Monday to Friday for a hearty breakfast and 8am on Saturday and Sunday.


"Nothing sets your day up better!"


Cliffhanger boasts unprecedented views of the Dorset/Hampshire coastline.



"A sea-view to make you go ahh"



Some of the words our customers have used to describe the Cliffhanger Cafe's location.

Designed to absorb the full visual impact of the sea, the Cliffhanger Cafe offers panoramic views, which we believe, are

unrivalled along the South Coast.



To create and maintain the Cliffhanger Cafe's dining, our Chefs are constantly updating their menu selections to incorporate produce from the sea to the land and influenced by the seasonal changes and most importantly local produce from the South of England, which in our opinion, offers the best in quality, taste and sustainability.


"Traditional food with a twist."


Our head chef strives to produce food which we believe delivers quality and presentation... Served all day... and with the passion on traditional methods of cooking.


"Quality is our passion."

"Families are our pleasure."

"Content families are our goal."


Cliffhanger Cafe is a fusion of quality food served all within the backdrop of the sea.




"Nothing would be more tiresome than eating or drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity."
