Experience wholesome, freshly-prepared and delicious food at Le Bateau Diner & Bar.

Whether it's a Brisk Brunch, a Lazy Lunch or a Dusky Dinner, you'll find the food here at Le Bateau right up your street. Located right in the heart of Ashley Cross, we serve delicious and healthy seafood and vegetarian cuisine from 11am right through to 10pm (prevailing restrictions permitting).

Le Bateau is now open everyday from 11am until 10pm. We have an eclectic seafood and vegetarian menu that is as delicious as it is wholesome; in fact, even the most ardent carnivores will find our food irresistible! Our head chef Martin extends his 30-year love of surfing and search for adventure fully into his food and he's always looking to try new flavours and combinations.

Le Bateau Crevettes
Le Bateau Smoked Salmon Sandwich

Being so close to the sea, it would almost be a crime to not have 'fruits de mer' on our menu. We pride ourselves on our freshly-prepared shellfish and fish courses and all our seafood is sourced locally wherever possible. Why not kick off the morning-after-the-night-before with some fresh Dorset Oysters and Bloody Mary shots, a great cure for even the most fiendish of hangovers. Move on to a bowl of delicious Moules Mariniere or Crevettes in garlic butter all served with fresh-baked bread. Finish off with our Fresh Fish of the Day (often line-caught the night before) or a Smoked Salmon or Classic Prawn Sandwich.

Le Bateau Proscuitto Sandwich
Le Bateau Mushroom Medley Sandwich

For those who like to steer clear of anything with a pulse, we have a hearty, healthy and appetising vegetarian menu. Starters include homemade dips, fried Halloumi or green beans in mint harissa and feta cheese. For main course you can enjoy a heavenly salad, our vegetarian/vegan dish of the day or one or iconic open sandwiches featuring a medley of mushrooms or smashed avocado.
