Everything about The View is amazing (we would say that, of course). The pièce de resistance, however, has to be breakfast – please read our reviews and see how often breakfast is mentioned.
The View on the terrace prides itself on using local, seasonal and sustainable ingredients where possible. We buy our bacon and sausages from Brace of Butchers in Poundbury, our butter is delivered by Craigs of Osmington and our eggs by SLB Eggs of Sherbourne. Our daily specials reflect the ingredients of the season. Our bread is home-baked (or locally baked) and the preserves and granola homemade.
Breakfast is served from a leisurely, 08:30 to 09:30 allowing you plenty of time to enjoy the stunning views of the sea and beach from the dining room.
When booking your accommodation, please advise us of any dietary requirements.
