If you're looking for somewhere to dine out on the Isle of Purbeck this evening, Quandoo's collection of Swanage restaurants is the first place to look and when you do, you'll find plenty of different cuisines and eateries to choose from. There are gastropubs set up as laid-back beach bars, typical country pubs in scenic locations, Italian trattorias, and contemporary British bistros, all of them waiting to take your order and show diners exactly what they can do.
Dorset has always had great pubs, but it's not enough to just pull a flawless pint of ale anymore. The best pub restaurants in Swanage match up classic British pints with outstanding food, offering the perfect setting for family meals and romantic evenings out. Both on the High Street and the seafront, there are a number of traditional British pubs which specialise in Dorset fare. From freshly harvested scampi to finely local peas and line-caught fish, these are fantastic places to enjoy a slap up meal and a glass of wine.
But if all you want to do is focus on the food, then Swanage's restaurants go well beyond quaint old pubs, that's for sure. For instance, there's the Bull and Boat on the seafront, which mixes nautical decor with exquisitely prepared seafood dishes, where most of the ingredients are caught in Swanage Bay itself. Food really doesn't get much fresher than that! When you check the Quandoo listings, you'll discover plenty of British restaurants in Dorset which utilise the region's seafood and meat offerings. Whether you want a succulent roast or seared scallops, Dorset's produce is always used to great effect – resulting in some tastebud-tingling creations.
Don't just assume that it's all about fish and chips, roasts, and shepherd's pie at Swanage restaurants, however... Sure, British cuisine is well represented, but gourmet food lovers have no shortage of options here either. There are also some fine Italian restaurants in Swanage, which provide a healthier alternative. When the weather's nice, these al fresco trattorias offer a great venue for lengthy lunchtime meals, as you sip fine Italian wines and work your way from antipasti to dolci. So whatever your taste, book a fine Swanage restaurant today with Quandoo!
