seventhwave café and restaurant

Set in the grounds of Durlston Castle with stunning views over Durlston Bay, the Channel, and the Isle of Wight. Emily and the team will welcome you warmly and seat you in the cosy restaurant or out on the terrace.

Dine in for a gourmet experience with the views to enjoy; delicious breakfasts, warming lunches, or a slice of heavenly cake. Perfect for a hearty start to your day before venturing into the park and nature reserve, or a well-deserved rest and pick-me-up after exploring the coastal path. Booking is highly recommended due to limited seating capacity. See   for full details: Seventh Wave Restaurant In Swanage
