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. It’s a fun and vibrant place to eat, drink and meet, we recommend a cup of our excellent, 100% rainforest alliance certified coffee.

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 and paninis. 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 well catered for at the Beach Café. Not only do they receive a very warm welcome from the staff but there are water bowls, soft bedding and even the odd biscuit! Dogs are welcome inside the café too, perfect on those cold, breezy days. We also stock a great selection of treats such as Pooch’s dog bones, Pawsecco and Doggy Ice Cream. What’s not to like?

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.
