The Point Restaurant

The Point Restaurant Sea View


The Point restaurant is situated at the tip of the Sandbanks Peninsula within the Haven Hotel, offering you a tranquil dining experience right at the water’s edge. If you choose to eat on the restaurant’s terrace, your conversation will be laced with the lapping of waves and gentle rustle of sails. With the sun on your face and the sea breeze whispering around you - this is alfresco dining at its best.

With stunning views across to Studland Bay and the iconic white cliffs of Old Harry Rocks, The Point is locally renowned not just for its enviable position, but for the quality of its cuisine. Awarded two AA Rosettes, it offers a fine dining experience in truly peaceful surroundings.

If you’ve dined with us before, you’ll know we’re foodies. We’re also lovers of local. Put these two passions together and you get beautiful dishes that are devoted to Dorset’s very own produce. Our talented Head Chef, Jason Hornbuckle, offers a daily changing dinner menu featuring a choice of three starters, three main courses, three desserts and also a Chef's Special menu, allowing him the opportunity to be creative with some of the South Coast’s finest ingredients, from Dorset crab and hand-dived scallops to the New Forest’s delicious mushrooms and asparagus.

In 2017, the restaurant underwent a clever make-over introducing calming colour tones to the walls and effortless modern furnishings, paying homage to the waves and sandy beaches. Plus, subtle touches such as gold-edged tables and beautiful designed tableware, which pays tribute to the quality of the cuisine.

Beautiful and above all, romantic, The Point restaurant at the water’s edge offers exquisite dining whilst watching the world sail by.
