The Hive Beach Café in Burton Bradstock, Dorset

The Driftwood Café in Blue Anchor, Somerset
A café with views across the Bristol Channel and just a couple of minutes’ walk from the Blue Anchor railway station, which is on the West Somerset Railway line. It serves hearty, home-cooked meals with ingredients sourced from the surrounding area.
