Beach Rd, Burton Bradstock, Bridport DT6 4RF
Fresh Seafood, Beach Location, Sea Views
Hive Beach Café is a popular foodie spot amongst locals and beachgoers alike. Situated right on the beach at Burton Bradstock, the café’s mantra is one of sustainability and supporting local suppliers. Expect a daily changing menu of fresh fish and seafood served straight from the waters you’ll be watching as you eat. The café is open all year round. In the winter months they crank up the heating, so you can relax in a cosy environment with a natural soundtrack of seagulls and crashing waves. Come summertime, the walls of the café disappear and the ‘Top Marquee’ makes an appearance. The marquee boasts the most incredible views over the sea and is tucked away from the crowds, so make sure you book ahead of time if you want to secure a seat. Alternatively, head to one of the café’s two sister restaurants: The Club House in West Brexington or The Watchhouse Café in West Bay.
Maverick tip: Hive Beach sells its own range of spirits, including a London dry gin, a spiced rum and a bakewell tart gin liqueur in collaboration with Ei8hteen Gin.
