Fodor's Review

Perched on a bluff overlooking sandy Burton beach, this airy restaurant in a hamlet at the western end of Chesil beach specializes in freshly caught seafood, and locally raised meat and produce. The small but focused menu includes dishes like pan-fried cod with samphire, smoked duck salad with spring onions, and crab cakes, plus excellent cocktails. The restaurant is in a Victorian villa remodeled to evoke a chic '20s feel, and the tables outside on the '70s-built terrace have fabulous views across Lyme Bay. A fixed-price lunch (£14 for two courses, £17 for three) is good value. Service is genial but a bit spotty. There are also eight light-filled bedrooms with views upstairs.
