Watch House Café


Watch House Café

Meet the Hive's sister Café, just yards from the sea.

Watch House Café is a breezy, easy going café in the heart of West Bay on the stunning Jurassic Coast in Dorset.

Please find our opening hours below.


The café has been completely refurbished and now offers extensive outdoor seating areas offering stunning views along the coastline across the harbour towards Thorncombe Beacon, Charmouth and Lyme Regis. Looking the other way towards Burton Bradstock you have the imposing golden cliffs that are so well known along this coastline. A great spot to see the Jurassic Coast in all its glory.

Inside you’ll find a bright, cosy and chic setting that shows off the cakes, drinks and sea food thats available. The large windows and folding doors bring the outside in making the decked area an extension to the café itself.


Best pizzas in West Bay, arguably the best in Dorset!  Available for eat-in or takeaway! 


The Club House in West Bexington is guaranteed to impress! Bookings highly recommended.  Book your seats here!
