If you fancy a coffee first thing, brunch on the seafront, or a delicious pre-theatre dinner, our newly refurbished café bar has something to suit all tastes and occasions. We pride ourselves on using quality, fresh and locally-sourced ingredients.

Located right on the promenade, we’re in the perfect spot for a lazy lunch with friends and family; with plenty on offer for our little visitors too. And when the sun shines, you can enjoy our spacious outdoor seating area, to make the most of the sea view.
