Swanage was packed for the last night of the annual carnival and we were clearly lucky to get a table up on the roof for our dinner. Service was swift and attentive and after a few beers we ordered the crab / tempura prawns and shellfish. All the food was really fresh and served with a smile....... in n fact... More

Good spot for a coffee and snack by the sea. Plenty of seating with great views across the bay and towards pier.

Often visit Gee Whites for lunch when in Swanage, great location right on the sea front, great fish dishes finished off with a glass of Cava!

Gee Whites is simple but great. It offers great wine and beer at reasonable prices and great seafood. The location is great for the beach and pier.

Gee Whites has been serving superb fresh seafood for ages. The rebuild has not detracted from the relaxed atmosphere. In our opinion there is no better dining experience than a bowl of their mussels with chips and fresh bread washed down with a bottle of pink Cava

We popped in here with local family after coming over from Poole. We had two mixed platters some calamari which was all really good! Plenty of it to go around as the platters came with chips & bread too. Gorgeous spot to grab a bite and glass or two of wine. We would defiantly go back.

Used Gee Whites many times over the years and left many reviews. Went last week and had a superb meal in the sunshine. So relaxed and you cannot beat the view and atmosphere.

They do what they do really well. On a sunny day, there is no beating eating fresh local fish and seafood looking out over Swanage bay and the pier. A short menu, consistent quality, I have been a regular visitor for three years. Mussels are recommended... in spring they are huge. Fresh and delicious local crab is also my top... More

Great place to sit outside and take in the beautiful views across the coast. We just had drinks during an afternoon visit but the seafood being served looked fabulous and the menu choice was good. A wonderful place for a relaxing lunch or cuppa and cake!
