Iconic Coastline • Fantastic food
The only café on West Bay Beach and just yards from the seashore. A perfect Dorset beachfront spot to enjoy breakfast, lunch, dinner or a drink.
Offering cosy and relaxed indoor seating complete with a Wood Fired pizza oven, freshly cooked seafood specials & Hive Micro-Bakery cake counter. Plus bringing the outside in, with large bi-folding doors opening on to the lower patio & beach top deck showcasing stunning views of the dramatic golden Jurassic cliffs.
Locally sourced, fresh & sustainable ingredients are the basis for creating our dishes and wherever possible we aim to support local suppliers. As a result, our comprehensive menu slowly evolves throughout the seasons.
From 10 years of trading, our café has become a local and holidaymaker's favourite. As well as our sister café 'The Hive Beach Café' which was established in 1991, and the recently opened sister restaurant 'The Club House' at West Bexington; the Hive brand has spread along the West Dorset coastline providing the highest quality seafood menu.
