The Bathing Hut Cafe

Stacks Image 313

We are open with a fast-to-serve take-away menu, filter coffee, tea and cold drinks as well as home-made cakes with vegan options. Open 11am-4pm all week with maybe fewer days and/or hours according to the weather. Two metre queuing will be necessary, as will the need to move swiftly on with your purchases as 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.

At the moment we will aim to be open from around 11am to 4pm Thursday to Sunday, extending the days as the weather and the lockdown conditions become kinder to our customers.

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 in normal times..

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