The menu was interesting and we both ordered Figgy Chicken with sweet potato fries and a side salad,the chicken breast was succulent and tasty, the sauce was delightful and the fries were nicely crisped, a...

It is such a shame but the food at the Heights really does let it down, very expensive and very bland. The views are incredible and that is what you pay for.

We stopped here for afternoon tea & scones to take in the amazing views of chissel beach & Weymouth. The drinks were reasonably priced & the scones were fresh & hot with jam & clotted cream. The cafe is on the 1st floor up some stairs but I believe there is a lift. There is also a balcony that you... More

We went to the portland Heights Hotel for tea, coffee and cake. Me and my mum had a very nice piece of rocky road and my dad had a beautiful piece of lemon drizzle. The views from the cafe are dazzling and the staff here are really nice. I would definitely recommend coming here for some tea and cake.

Attended a family function here. Everything was very well organised and staff were very helpful and polite. There was a buffet and the food was very tasty. The views are simply amazing and was very easy to find using the postcode on the sat nav.

Lovely food. The Muscles and chips were superb. Great big bucket and a portion of chips. Not sure it needs the chips. The bar staff were ok, couple of them weren't in any rush.

We booked a table for our anniversary lunch with family, we've eaten here a couple of times before and the food didn't disappoint, unfortunately the service did. We sat with our finished main course plates in front of us for ages before they were cleared. We weren't offered a dessert menu and a member of our group had to ask... More

After visiting several sites in and around Portland, we stopped in at The Heights on the recommendation of friends. The Bistro is a lovely, light filled room with large windows offering the most wonderful views of Chesil Beach and beyond. The menu choices are varied and options are many. Our server was prompt, professional and friendly. We all opted for... More

Last time it was coffee and cakes for two. This time there were four of us. The Rose Zinfandel was delicious and the accompanying meals were tasty and satisfying (Sea Food Chowder, Steak & Ale pie, Scampi and the fourth a Tuna Sandwich) The deserts were mmm-yummy and the coffee was good. Service was not quite faultless but very good... More
