Tastes of the seaside on the Jurassic coast

A RESTAURANT with rooms that welcomes sandy feet, windswept dogs and weather-beaten walkers who have worked up an appetite is now tempting visitors and locals with a new cliff-top ice cream bar.

The Seaside Boarding House in Burton Bradstock is a foodie destination with a timeless feel, and an amazing location with the dramatic panorama of Lyme Bay right outside.

A delicate drizzle for the discerning ice cream lover, the Seaside Boarding House’s sea salted caramel sauce is made to a closely guarded recipe and marries perfectly with the handmade vanilla ice cream that keeps ramblers, swimmers and sand castle builders coming back for more.

Inside, visitors and diners find a restaurant, bar and terrace providing an oasis of relaxed sophistication, created according to the vision of managing director, Mary-Lou Sturridge. The distinctive style, with lovingly renovated furniture and fittings from the early 1900s to the present day, is a blend of old and new, making a playful nod to marine life and coastal heritage.
