Beach Café at Wells Beach

Beach Café

The Beach Café at Beach Road, Wells-next-the-Sea is in an idyllic location backed by mature pinewoods and a stone’s throw from the beach. It’s a fun and vibrant place to eat and drink and the perfect venue and place to meet.

As summer arrives, whether dining al fresco on the sunny terrace or picnicking on the beach, you can enjoy fresh local produce at its best, with tasty snacks and light meals, a variety of hot and cold drinks and everyone’s favourite - ice creams and ice lollies. Children will love our ‘Children’s Meal Deal’ and can choose five of our ‘Beach Bites’ and get a FREE bucket to carry them in! The café also offers a selection of tempting traditional beach goods.

In the winter months after a bracing walk on the beach, get comfy in our sofas and arm chairs around the warmth of the roaring wood-burning stove. We’ve got traditional board games such as draughts, chess and Scrabble to keep you occupied and free WiFi if you need it. You’ll love our range of knitted hats, gloves and scarves, ideal to keep you cosy. Or if you are feeling peckish then try one of our freshly baked cheese or fruit scones or our chilli with tortilla and soured cream. Our bacon baps are just the job too!

Calling All Dog Lovers
Your four-legged friends are also well catered for and welcome inside the café. We are proud to announce that for the second year running, the Beach Café has been voted the winner of the best Café/Restaurant category in the Kennel Club’s Be Dog Friendly Awards 2015. The awards recognise businesses and places to visit that go that extra mile for our canine comrades and are based solely on public votes. Thank you to everyone that voted for us.

It’s easy - Just post a photo of your dog enjoying the Beach Café for a chance to be crowned our 2016 winner! Click here for details.

Our self-service ‘Wash ‘n’ Wag’ dog wash is fun and free! After a run on the beach or swim in the sea, the fun and effective dog wash is a chance to wash down your pet in a specially enclosed booth, removing the sand and seawater from their coats. They can then dry off in the sun while you enjoy your refreshments with the knowledge that your pet will be clean and happy for the journey home.
