I normally wouldn't write a review about a place like this as indeed, it is what it is which is just a cafe (albeit a pleasant cafe) & of course as everyone has already said, the view really is to die for. One of the best in Dorset for sure.
The food was good & plentiful but the wait was totally unacceptable hence it should be noted. OK, it was a warm bank holiday weekend & there were many folks wandering around but the delay was way past unreasonable. When I did my training for this chosen path many years ago, once the food was ordered, something had to be on the table within 20 minutes. I Googled this before writing this review & the general consensus seems to be 30 minutes these days. I realise people will pooh-pooh this as cavilling but what would you, on a personal level, find acceptable? Our concern was that individuals & families who were arriving after us were getting served before us too.
We ordered & paid at the counter when we arrived & the time was printed on the receipt so when I went to ask where our food was, it then suddenly appeared. Captious? Maybe but no apology or explanation was forthcoming & verily, we didn't expect one from the team that didn't really care.
I reiterate the meal was really lovely... but spoilt by the huge & totally amateurish & incompetent crew. And no, you really wouldn't believe how long we waited!
