14 years ago, two friends with a passion for creating delicious, exciting, homemade food joined forces, beginning their own business – Bliss Food Co, catering for weddings, parties, events, corporate functions and special occasions within Swanage and the surrounding areas. We had no idea where this adventure would take us and are so thankful for everything we have achieved.

As our outside catering services have always flourished, we decided to take the next leap and tick of another one of our lifelong ambitions off the list, opening our very own restaurant. In October 2017 we bought our Bliss Food Co restaurant to Swanage, whilst still offering our outside catering services.

And now we have the pleasure of saying that our wonderful restaurant is celebrating its first Birthday.

Our unique welcoming restaurant specialises in freshly prepared homemade locally sourced food; our meat is supplied by Swanage family run butchers JJ Moore Butchers, who supply us with their high-quality meat from local farms, whilst our fresh, flavoursome bread is delivered from Hayman’s Bakery. We also take great pride in catering for all with vegetarian, vegan, gluten and diary free options also available.

We’ve had the most amazing year and would like to take this opportunity to thank our hardworking dedicated staff, our friends and family, our suppliers, our landlord, but most importantly thank you to all of our super lovely customers! Without you all Bliss Food Co wouldn’t be possible.

If you would like to join us for dinner, we are open Wednesday to Saturday, 6pm – 11pm, with extra dates available for private bookings. We have a weekly menu which can be found on our website and daily specials; including our local fisherman’s catch of the day.  We have also recently extended our wine and drinks menu; with a selection of refreshing wines, local beers, ales and cocktails available, again details can be found on our website.

Welcome to Bliss Food Co

Having worked together in the catering world as outside caterers for 14 years across the Purbeck and Dorset area, in October 2017 we bought Bliss Food Co. to Swanage. Our new home is located on Kings Roast East in the town centre.

With our unique welcoming restaurant, we specialise in freshly prepared homemade locally sourced food; our meat is supplied by Swanage family run butchers JJ Moore Butchers, who supply us with their high quality meat from local farms.

Do you have a food allergy? That’s not a problem either. We pride ourselves on looking after all our customers so why not try our gluten and dairy free Spanish orange and almond cake? We love our relaxed friendly atmosphere and with children and dogs welcome also, we’re sure you’ll find it inviting.

For us, we love Swanage and being part of it’s community. That’s why we get involved and support local projects. We are super proud to be of the Refill Dorset scheme with Litter Free Coast and Sea. It’s a fantastic scheme which helps protect our environment and means you can pop in to us whenever we are open and have your water bottle refilled. We are also supported their annual beach clean by offering anyone taking part a free hot drink.

We host and cater for events throughout the year and the 27th March saw us hold our first Canapes and Prosecco Evening of 2018. It was a great opportunity for us to meet new businesses in Swanage and catch up with some old friends. We were also extremely honoured to have been asked to host the Purbeck Runners annual quiz and held our own Stand Up To cancer Bake Sale where we raised over £500.

“Thank you so much for having us!! Lovely eve, lovely people and amaaazing canapés   ” Amy Spread.
