Our Philosophy

Here at WestBeach we pride ourselves on using the freshest, local seafood, served in a relaxed beachside environment, encompassing everything you’d hope for in a visit to Bournemouth.

Our contemporary styling through the restaurant features an open-plan kitchen so diners can watch the chefs at work, or simply relax and enjoy the stunning sea views – whatever the weather – through folding glass doors opening onto our sun soaked decked terrace.

Award-winning beachside dining

Using only the freshest local ingredients and daily catches, mouthwatering dishes are created in the open-plan kitchen for us all to see. Enjoy some of the best wines from around the world with Bournemouth’s only enomatic wine machine.

WestBeach has been named by The Times and Sunday Times as the 4th best place to eat seafood by the sea in Britain. We are also listed in 'The Good Food Guide' 2019 as a local gem and have been named by Waitrose as one of the 10 best seaside restaurants.

Latest update 

It’s with a heavy heart we have to again shut our doors from Thursday 5th November, due to the national lockdown. We are still confident that our Christmas celebrations will go ahead and fingers crossed we will be able to reopen from Wednesday 2nd December.  

Any bookings throughout November can be rearranged, please give us a call before Thursday and we can rearrange for you. Alternatively send us an email to enquiry@west-beach.co.uk and we will get back to you as soon as possible.  

We can assure you as soon as we are able to open again, we will be pulling out all the stops to celebrate Christmas and New Year. Bookings for December are not yet live, we will announce when they go live via our social media channels.  

Love the WestBeach team x
