Bistro
“This has to be my all time favourite!! The Station Kitchen is situated in a converted railway carriage at the platform of the old West Bay Station, they have the loveliest staff there and after a drink in the former waiting room, you are shown to your table within the converted carriage. You should google it to appreciate the quirky and fabulous features this truly is a one off place and I have NEVER had a bad meal there, it is excellent specialising in using locally sourced, seasonal produce. It really is a delight!”

Beach
“West Bay with the iconic East Cliff is at the heart of the Jurassic Coast, and a must see. Be careful here as the cliffs are unstable. Plenty of places to eat, take a stroll around and spot more Broadchurch locations. Grab an ice cream and people watch in the sun! Walk along towards Eype and Golden Cap, the highest point on the Coast. Walking East towards Portland, visit Burton Bradstock and the Hive Beach cafe. Visit West Bexington with its wild beach, and on towards Chesil.”

They have a wine bar, serve great coffee and cakes and regular live music on specific weekends. Definitely worth a visit if you're in West Bay.”
