Managed to get a table here on walk in which was very lucky as we hadn’t booked. The food was excellent, the staff were extremely good and the COVID precautions made us feel safe. Would definitely return when staying near by.

Sassy attitude from staff and ridiculous prices. £2 for a basic jam donut? I do live locally and was treated like they were doing me a favour. Not inpressed

I don’t mind paying for overpriced food when the view is so nice. However, I do expect reasonable service. My family ate breakfast there and the waitress forgot my coffee. When I asked another waitress to check on it I could see the the waitress...I ordered from acting like I didn’t order one. A quick check on the ordering system showed that I had and I soon after got a coffee. The waitress didn’t write down our order properly so my youngest son had no food delivered even though his cutlery were. When we asked where his food was the waitress simply said you only ordered four meals (when there were five of us sitting in front of five sets of cutlery). The waitress didn’t even apologise to my son and was later seen dancing behind the bar using two upturned glasses held to her head like antlers which were later used for customers. Highly unhygienic. I would highly recommend saving your money and going somewhere else.More

What a wonderful restaurant, my initial apprehension of the price and lack of immediate drink service was soon overshadowed by the spectacular dish, quite possibly the best salmon I've ever eaten, would definitely dine again.

A lovely menu with an Asian twist, the specials board provided some very lovely alternatives when you thought you'd made your selection. All food had a great freshness. In a lovely setting. Highly recommend booking ahead to save disappointment.

I'm sorry for writing a highly critical review the other day and withdrawn it. Nevertheless, if you've had to close the kitchen because lunch service was inundated - and these things are probably happening more often with with Covid pings - don't let any customers...in if you can't provide the limited service on offer (i.e. drinks only). I hope you sort your staffing issues out.More

We went here last Saturday evening and both thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We tried some of the cocktails which were all very nice, and we had the squid and salmon to start followed by a prawn curry and Katsu curry. We didn’t have a dessert...as were both stuffed but they had a few nice ones to choose from. Food was all delicious and the restaurant setting is gorgeous with views over the river. The only niggle we had was our table wasn’t ready when we arrived and we had to sit in the bar area for 20 minutes when we were both very hungry and just wanted to get on with eating. Other than that everything seemed great and we will return next year when we visit West Bay againMore

During our stay in Dorset we booked an evening meal at Rise. Apart from a seagull depositing a well aimed message on my wife’s head as we were about to enter, we had a great experience. My wife had halibut while I had the vegetarian...curry. Both dishes extremely tasty and well presented. Highly recommended.More

Yes dogs are allowed. Indeed there were quite a few on the day I went. Most were outside growling at each other. Not for me but heyho!

The layout is on different levels and effectively in sections (due to walkways) - so I think you need to discuss with management.
