Get ready for lift off at WestBeach for the Air Festival
Come to WestBeach Restaurant during the Bournemouth Air Festival (Thursday August 29th to Sunday September 1st) and you can enjoy award-winning fresh local seafood, locally sourced Dorset meats, fine wines, and some of the best views of the action from your table.
The festival is, of course, the UK’s biggest air show, with more than 8 million visitors since its debut in 2008. As you can imagine, things get busy, both down on Bournemouth beach and up on the clifftop vantage points.
Best Views on the Beach
That’s why we recommend booking in advance over Air Festival weekend to guarantee a table for you or your family. You’ll be able to enjoy our wonderful fresh seafood dishes, from Moules Mariniere to fresh local Sea Bass, as well as shellfish, local meats sourced from some of Dorset’s best butchers, and light, tasty bites for the kids.
Don’t leave it to chance and find yourself without somewhere to sit and have lunch with the family. With so much to see at the air show, we’re expecting yet another bumper year on the beach with large crowds. Highlights of the festival include:
- The mighty Typhoon featuring all weekend
- The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight
- The unmistakable "wocka wocka" of the Chinook helicopters
- The Tigers Freefall Parachute Display Team
- Out on the water, a flotilla of Royal Navy Ships.
- And more...
