If Kirsty and Phil were awarding stars for a prime business site they would be saying, 'location, location, location' to Steve Attrill, owner of the Hive Beach Café. As the name may suggest, this quaint eatery sits right on Hive Beach, a dream spot on the Jurassic Coast.

Set between towering honey-coloured cliffs, the beach shelves into Lyme Bay and the views are stunning. However, there are many positive aspects to a business this successful; so, add innovative chefs and ever-changing menus of sumptuous food and it's clear why Steve scooped Coast magazine's 2009 award for best coastal café, pub or restaurant. The panel of judges, which included TV presenter Miranda Krestovnikoff, were particularly impressed by the use of locally sourced fish. It is a deserved award for this fabulous restaurant which, at 20 years old, is something of an institution in these parts.

'Our food reflects the wonderful diversity of what's available in the South West,' says Steve. On offer is a range of dishes that go from the simple to the sophisticated. The farmhouse English breakfast is incredibly popular, whilst for lunch, Steve suggests the Lulworth handdived scallops with chorizo, pancetta and black pudding. A perfect choice for supper as the sun sets has to be grilled fillets of Cornish John Dory with a saffron and crayfish sauce.

The café serves as both a local meeting place and a gastronomic holiday treat, with customers coming from near and far to enjoy the buzzing atmosphere, tasty food and superb location. The Hive is also great for kids and welcomes dogs too. It's a cosy refuge on a winter Sunday morning and a walker's haven on hot summer days, serving Continental coffees, organic West Country soft drinks, Somerset ice creams and Dorset wines. It's no wonder The Hive Caféattracts eager diners like bees to a honeypot.
