We had a very nice lunch at Rachels, great service and nicely presented seafood platters. It's all outside dining so I suppose you have to keep an eye on the weather, but we brought our dog along so it worked out very well.

We'd been to Rachel's last year and we had to come back. We can personally vouch for the fish stew and smoked haddock chowder but everything else looks just as tasty. Great way to try out freshly caught fish from the Dorset coast.

When we went the menu included macaroni cheese and salad, nachos with vegetables and a sumptuous Greek salad. I wouldn't miss a meal at Rachel's under any circumstances! Enjoy your visit.
