Eventually managed to get a table at Rachel's. I have been waiting a year to try the fish stew. It was well worth the wait. Pleanty of fish and a lovely tomato sauce base. It came with 2 chunks of crusty bread. I would recommend that this dish is tried by all.

Very busy with a waiting system in place for free tables - after eating here I can understand why it is so popular! My wife chose the crab sandwich while I went for the smoked haddock chowder. Both were delicious! Generous servings of good quality seafood at very reasonable prices. We saw what others on adjacent tables were eating and... More

We dropped by for a late lunch and were seated immediately. The staff are very friendly and efficient . The bottom line is that the food is superb. The chowder is consistently excellent. How the small team produce food of such high quality from their shed never ceases to amaze me. Such excellent value. Fantastic .

Wow really busy but efficiently run, we arrived on a Saturday lunchtime and were given a number, we waited for about 15mins until our number was called in the meantime we had placed our order so once seated we didn't have too long to wait and was it worth waiting for! He had tempura prawns done in a really light... More

We went here based on reviews were not disappointed! We had the chowder and the prawn platter both were really good quality and quantity very reasonable priced too. We would definitely recommend but be advised do book as its very busy. Staff friendly and professional.

Not the usual place we would try, but was recommended by friends. How they produce such good sea food out of a shed I will never know, but it is a special lunchtime treat, but only in good weather as all tables are outside, and a wait for one is likely.

After a weekend visiting gardens and houses in Dorset we decided to take a trip to West Bay. The Tuesday after Bank Holiday Monday proved the perfect time to go. The crowds had gone, the sun shone and we enjoyed a delicious very reasonably priced lunch at one of the tables outside Rachel's hut. The chowder was delicious, the crab... More

Busiest of the harbour snack shacks and far and away the best. The quality of the sea food was excellent and the service, although very busy, was friendly and quick with clear information on waiting time. Great choice to cover all tastes from fish and chips to more upmarket seafood dishes which were all well presented. Wine and beer available... More

Many thanks for your review and good advice re the birds. Starlings and seagulls alike can be such a nuisance around all the food outlets looking for scraps to be fed or scavenged. More
