Dulcie's is a reimagined family cottage turned restaurant bar. The menu consists of a small selection of tasty burgers, oysters, seasonal cocktails, delicious wine, and friendly chat. Dulcie’s has a long bar to sit at, a beer garden to hang in, a fireplace to warm up next to. All of our menus consider local produce and the atmosphere we aim to create is cosy, fun and comfortable. Think cool grandma crossed with cheeky grandpa vibes.

Greeted at the entrance to Dulcie's by a cheerful and helpful waiter, we were immediately seated. We ordered and the food came in good time. It was well presented and the burgers and french fries were superb. The best fries on the South Coast!
As we were sitting near the outdoor music speakers it was a bit noisy but nothing which upset us or altered the ambience of this cute and lively restaurant.

They specialise in Burgers and they are tasty. It is better to sit outside then in. Reminds me of a beer garden pub.

Was not given a menu, had to use my phone. Inappropriate comments from staff about customers hair style/ cut. Over priced for what it was, have had better burgers for half the price.

Food was not very good and me and my partner did not feel well after dinner. I also believe that for what you get beers and burgers are too expensive. Stuff was lovely.

Booked a table close to the fire as it was a cold night. Ambience plus. They even did my burger without a bun - delicious! Friendly staff, great wine list and fab food. Perfect for a relaxed catch-up with a friend.

Used to love the burgers, now they are greasy and obviously thrown together without care. Went mid afternoon on a Sunday, the bar staff were more interested in chatting amongst themselves then serving drinks.

We enjoyed our visit to Dulcie's Cottage with oysters, fresh burgers, the flavors are amazing.
It was a lovely way to spend Sunday lunch, under the Jacaranda tree, great music in the back ground and a cold beverage or two.

I always enjoy Dulcies. This last time though was a bit frustrating as I had ordered two weeks in adavnce and my group's table was assigned to outside in the rain. Other than that grievance, it was a nice time

Six friends enjoyed fantastic Margaritas. We had a table outside which was great as a little too loud inside for 6 in my opinion. We were just hoping it wasn’t going to rain. We also had the fresh oysters which were delicious. Bar staff were dressed clean and smart and were very professional and music was great too. Totally recommend this venue.
