WELCOME

The Canteen Swanage
Situated just off the High Street, the canteen is a popular family-run restaurant in the centre of Swanage.
The canteen has been a huge hit with holiday visitors and Swanage residents alike since it opened in July 2013. Its special hallmark is the laid-back private dining room atmosphere. The clubby vibe is proving especially popular for private parties of up to 35.
The restaurant offers a changing menu using seasonal vegetables, fresh fish, local meat and lots of flavour. Any special dietary requirements are happily catered for. Our wine list is small but perfectly formed – by the glass, carafe or bottle – with cocktails of the day as well.
Team canteen look forward to welcoming you soon.
