The Beach Café serves a wide slection of hot and cold food and snacks throughout the year

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. Enjoy our new look for 2017 - It’s a fun and vibrant place to eat and drink and the perfect venue and place to meet.

In the winter months after a bracing walk on the beach, warm up by the roaring wood-burning stove. We’ve got a special winter weekend menu including soup, chilli, mac ‘n’ cheese, vegetable tagine, hummus and falafel wrap, festive paninis and, mulled cider and mince pies in the run up to Christmas. Why not browse our ‘Beach Café Book Exchange’ and of course there is WiFi if you need it.

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. The café also offers a selection of tempting traditional beach goods.

Calling All Dog Lovers
Your four-legged friends are also well catered for and welcome inside the café. In the summer, 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 yo ur refreshments with the knowledge that your pet will be clean and happy for the journey home. There’s even a chance for a drink with Berties Bark-up Bar!

Why not enter your canine companion into our ‘Dog of the Year’ competition on the café’s Facebook page.

Please help us to keep this area special
The beaches at Wells-next-the-Sea and Holkham form part of a unique landscape, rich in wildlife and one which we need your help to protect. The area is popular with dog walkers throughout the year and we would like to remind all owners that it is your responsibility to keep your dog under close supervision and control and that you MUST clean up after your dog and use the dog waste bins provided.
