Nice location on a sunny day (less so when raining). Average breakfast with small coffee. Not a destination eatery.

This place has had its day really, the food is good, but overpriced considering the ambience is that of a seaside canteen in a marquee. If you want to treat yourself to a delicious seafood lunch then there are better options nearby. Don't believe the...More

We had heard rave reviews about The Hive Beach Cafe and were glad that we lunched early, as people were queueing by the time we came out. It is a pretty busy environment and its location makes it susceptible to the vagaries of the weather,...More

Stopped for breakfast and was a good spread with good options however very marked up given the location I assume. Busy and bustling and a nice start to the day and seemingly better facilities than other beach front cafes we have passed along the way.

We’re committed to using fresh, locally sourced seafood - when available we serve fish straight from the very shoreline you’ll be eating on. We offer a wide selection of cakes, biscuits and take away treats. All homemade by Melanie and her team at the Hive Beach Micro Bakery based in Burton Bradstock. We’re happy to accommodate large parties of diners and we’re dog friendly but we don’t take reservations so it’s advisable to arrive a little early for lunch as we do get busy!

Please check our website for up to date opening hours because we do open for dinner during the spring and summer season.

Whilst we do our best to reduce the risk of cross-contamination in our restaurants, we cannot guarantee that any of our dishes are free from allergens and therefore cannot accept any liability in this respect. We urge customers with any form of allergies to assess their own level of risk and consume dishes at their own risk. Please ask to speak to the chef on duty if you are in need of any assistance in this regard
