The Bathing Hut Cafe

Stacks Image 313
We are open with a fast-to-serve take-away menu, coffees (the espresso machine is back!), tea and cold drinks as well as home-made cakes with vegan and gluten-free options.

Open 11am-4pm everyday with possibly fewer days and/or shorter hours depending on the weather.

Friday Special: banana blossom 'fish' and chips (Ve)

Saturday Special: a full 'English' breakfast (V or Ve) between 10am and noon.

On Mondays and Tuesdays, the menu is limited to drinks, cakes and lighter snacks.

Unfortunately we cannot provide seating and tables for the time being. However, the beach is but a step away.


Thank you for your support

The Bathing Hut Café is right on the beach between Hastings & Bexhill in St Leonards, West of Marina. This quirky beach café provides innovative, meat-free menus (except for the occasional bit of seafood) for almost all tastes with excellent views along the coast and across the Channel.

Our season is usually from March to October.

The cafe is open from 11am to 4pm each day of the week.

Opening hours may shorten or get longer and we may opportunistically open on ‘closed’ days and close on 'open' days - all depending on the weather - rain and/or strong winds being the most significant elements.

If you want to be sure about our opening times on any particular week or day, please contact us:
