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.

Every mouthful of food is delicious and we can recommend the house red. the canteen is obviously used by local people and visitors to Swanage need to know about this fantastic restaurant tucked behind the main streets!
