Restaurants on Portland - where to eat

Your Crabbers’ Wharf apartment comes fully kitted out, but when you’re on holiday and surrounded by so many fantastic places to eat, why not let someone else do the cooking?

Within walking distance (or within sight) of Crabbers’ Wharf

The Boat That Rocks

With plenty of outdoor seating with a lovel marina view, The Boat That Rocks is a popular place for coffee, breakfast, lunch or in the evening.

The menu features locally-sourced ingredients with vegan and gluten-free options.

It’s an easy stroll from Crabbers’ Wharf.

Frontline Cafe and Bar

Just up the road is a cafe owned and run by local firefighters, in aid of frontline charities. Come for the barista coffee, premium tea, luxury hot chocolates, and milkshakes as well as hot snacks.


This outdoor beach cafe serves great breakfasts, fresh seafood for lunch, and drinks and snacks until sunset. With service being weather dependent, we recommend you call the team to book a table – 01305 820651.

The Crab House Cafe

Why not take a walk along the harbour to the always-popular Crab House Cafe (we reckon it would take you about 45 minutes), and then grab a taxi back to Crabbers’ Wharf? The Crab House is known for its inventive menu, putting local produce front and centre. We advise checking availability and booking before

The Cove House Inn

Pub food with spectacular views of Chesil Beach, all within walking distance of Crabbers’ Wharf. The Cove House Inn’s open fire makes it the ideal location for a Sunday roast all year round.

The Chesil Chippie

From traditional cod and chips through to tempura battered samphire, order online from the nearby Chesil Chippie to beat the queue for collection or delivery.

Billy Winters

A beach bar and diner in a fabulous location right on the beach. Billy Winters offers a chilled-out vibe and gorgeous views across the harbour.

The Adventure Cafe

Across the road from Crabbers’, The Adventure Cafe serves breakfast and lunch, with smoothies and cakes.

One of Weymouth’s newest restaurants, Catch sits above Weyfish on the harbourside, where you can also buy fresh fish and other seafood. The Hatch is open for food throughout the day.
