The Cove House Inn Pub at Chiswell in Portland offers a friendly, cosy atmosphere with the most spectacular views Portland can offer.

Chesil Beach is quite literally our doorstep – a 16 mile sweeping beach of pebbles for a far as the eye can see. The famous Portland cliffs with their stunning natural features stand tall to the south making them an attraction to divers, anglers, birdwatchers, walkers, climbers, geologists and any other outdoor enthusiast.

Quality, freshly prepared, pub food from our superb menu and specials board is available 7 days a week, with locally caught fish and seafood a regular feature. Click on the menu link for our mouth watering menu! Inside or outside – take your pick! Our outside seating area allows you to enjoy your meal or relax with a drink, whilst soaking up the coastal atmosphere in the sun. Witnessing
the breath taking sunsets over Lyme Bay from The Cove House Inn is a must for all.

Winter days are also memorable at The Cove House Inn. Relax in front of the open fire and watch the stormy seas pound Chesil Beach.

Drinks are a plenty! All the favourite draught lagers, ciders and bitters are available along with fantastic guest real ales. A fine wine list has also been prepared to suit the needs of all wine lovers. Coffee made from freshly ground beans and other hot drinks are available all day long from our Italian imported coffee machine.

We are pleased to announce that we will be welcoming dogs back into the pub.

They will be permitted in the bar area and the Madeline Tristan side of the restaurant

We ask that all dogs are kept on leads under your table and not be on any of the benches or obstructing any walk ways for the safety of the staff  bringing food and drinks to tables.
