Clavells is a traditional restaurant set in the heart of the Jurassic Coast. With our very own courtyard and garden, centrally located in the heart of the picturesque village of Kimmeridge. We serve a wonderful choice of seasonal favourites and classic food dishes. Clavells should be your first port of call for a hearty Sunday roast, a three-course meal, or a sun-drenched cocktail on a glorious summer’s day.

    Choose Clavell’s restaurant to entertain an old friend that we had not seen for some time. As always, the quality, and presentation of the food, and the high level of service never fails to impress. Have no hesitation in adding Clavell’s to my list of favourite places to visit in Purbeck.

    Clavells is a beautiful place, in a beautiful setting. There are lots of tables, especially outside. The high points of the visit is first, the staff, they couldn't have been more professional, helpful and kind, secondly, the food is really good, actually and really cooked by a chef to order, and the vegetables taste and texture are truly notably good, so unlike in many other places. Portions are good too. Not sure about the price of a pint of Guinness though, especially when service is included.

    A lot of money for what you got and the food quality wasn’t great. Also £3.50 for a kids Fruit Shoot!

    Excellent lunch after a visit to the wonderful Steve Etches fossil museum opposite. I was especially delighted with my gluten free fish pie - being coeliac my options in restaurants are often few, but this was absolutely delicious. Good portions, delightful waiting staff who couldn’t have been more friendly and helpful. Highly recommended. We will be back on our next visit to Dorset!

    Very average food at very expensive prices. A shame as the location is lovely. Possibly catering to the captive market from The Etches collection?

    This resteraunt is ideally situated next to the jurassic coast museum. The menu is full and varied giving a large choice. The service was attentive but not overwhelming and delivered with a jolly and welcoming smile. The food order was taken and the perfectly cooked items were shortly on the table. Slightly off the beaten track but very well worth a visit. Will be returning.

    A nice venue, good service and an interestingly different menu from the normal. The food was served quickly and was hot, perhaps a little on the expensive side for plain fish and chips/pie and chips.
