Welcome to our unique seafood restaurant in West Bay, Bridport, Dorset.

If you are looking for the best seafood restaurants in Bridport and West Bay, The Station Kitchen is the Plaice. Our quirky and vintage railway station brings an old-world location into the modern day. Although we specialise in seafood, we also cater for those of you would like that meat fix and all allergies and dietary requirements.

We are a family business, with  a long history in hospitality and catering. We started out as a cake company, then a catering company and now we are a restaurant in West Bay.

We have created an environment where people can connect with each-other, with the unique space around them and the neighbourhood they are in. We caters for all dietary requirements, including gluten free, coeliac, dairy, nut allergies and more.

In the heart of West Bay, just a few steps from the famous cliffs that were featured in Broadchurch, we have deep blue sea and golden sand. Our restaurant is a place to unwind and enjoy the vibrancy of life.

With a strong focus on seafood, blessed by the wonderful ocean that surrounds us, our menu's showcase the best, local, sustainable ingredients, our menu flows with the seasons, keeping it fresh and showcasing produce at its very best.


We take great pride in doing our bit for the planet, this means, you will find linen napkins on our tables and fluffy towels in our bathrooms, no paper here! We also have firm recycling processes in place, source locally and compost waste within our own seasonal vegetable garden.

The Carriages...both rescued and given a new lease of life by the sea

Our newest carriage is called Beeching, this carriage was built in 1958 and offers tables for pre-dinner cocktails and drinks.


Our World War 1 carriage is called Brunel, this was built in 1911, which makes her older than the Titanic. This carriage is our main dining area and also works perfectly for tables up to 45, as we can move the tables into one long line. 

The Station House is our dog friendly area.

Station Kitchen owner Ross Moore with Ma

West Bay

"A firm favourite is the Station Kitchen. This is situated in a converted railway carriage at the platform of the old West Bay Station, they have the loveliest staff there and after a drink in the former waiting room, you are shown to your table in the carriage. Last year we celebrated our 20th wedding anniversary on board."

Martin Clunes

"Absolutely first rate. Very pretty setting and decor, charming staff, excellent food. Highly recommended"
