Absolutely Fantastic – Venue, Preparation, Staff, Service and Food (Deserts exceptional!) were all amazing. All of the staff really did ‘pull out all the stops’ in making sure our Wedding Reception ran smoothly. Nothing was problem for them and they made sure they accommodated all of our requests. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a chilled reception venue with a good vibe, close to the Beach. Thank you The Crows Nest Inn xHeidi J

Went for a meal with some friends was very busy when we went considering it was a weekday evening. We were served quickly by happy staff in the bar area. I ordered off the bar menu and food was of great quality.

We had our evening meal here twice on our recent holiday in Swanage and thought it was great. We ate outside both times and loved it. The food was excellent as was the service.

Great for Sunday lunch. Always friendly staff
