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

Beach Café

Following the most recent government guidance, all three Holkham cafés are now closed.

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 usually have indoor seating, which is currently not in use during the coronavirus situation, however you can still enjoy our outdoor seating and there’s WiFi if you need it. The perfect re-fuelling stop before or after a refreshing beach walk.

Enjoy fresh local produce at its best. We have sandwiches and rolls made each day with various tempting fillings, along with sausage rolls, pasties and pastry slices. To start off the day, our bacon or sausage baps are just the treat. If it’s coffee and cake your looking for, then give in to our cakes, 100% rain forest alliance certified coffee, or a delicious hot chocolate topped with cream.

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! During normal opening, dogs are welcome inside the café too, perfect on those cold, breezy days. We also stock a selection of treats such as Pooch’s dog bones and Ruff and Tumble dog coats. Why not take a picture of your dog at the cafe and enter our social media Dog of the Month competition?

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.
