Come and eat at our seafood café located on the Chesil Bank, at Hive Beach near Bridport in Dorset, offering some of the best views of Lyme bay. The café offers a vast range of local foods and fish. The fish counter is on view as soon as you walk into the café and our chefs are at hand to answer any questions regarding the fish on display.
During the summer months we offer a selection of shellfish, spider crabs off our own beach, brown crabs from Lyme Bay and when possible hand dived scallops, a must to have while sitting on Dorset’s beautiful World Heritage coast watching the sea and enjoying a bottle wine.
Inside you will find our cake counter filled with a selection of homemade cakes and locally made biscuits. Behind the counter on the walls the chalk menu tells you what’s on offer. It’s always best to be a bit early to get the best pick of the fish, ask at the counter if you have any special requirements, we will be pleased to help. The team of staff at the Hive will always welcome you with a smile and work hard to make your visit as pleasurable as possible.
The café extends its warm welcome to everyone; families, children and your dogs are welcome to come and join in the fun. We cater for the whole family so if you and your little ones have forgotten their bucket and spade or want a try at body boarding our cheerful staff will help you out, don’t forget the sunscreen!
