Marine Drive, BARTON-ON-SEA, BH25 7DZ
A clifftop perch gives this modern bar-brasserie a sweeping vista across Christchurch Bay to the Needles and the Isle of Wight. Inside is a buzzy split-level venue where high stools at the oyster bar allow views of the open-plan kitchen. An alfresco terrace is irresistible when the weather behaves. Fish and seafood are strong suits, producing perhaps a main course of monkfish and squid braised in a spicy bisque of shellfish, tomato and brandy, served with broccoli and rice. That might be preceded by rabbit pÔtÚ with tapenade straws and rosÚ wine jelly, while dessert furnishes pistachio and almond nougat glacÚ with poached apricots.
