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 for almost all tastes with excellent views along the coast and across the Channel.

The Cafe is open at weekends, weather permitting, from 10am until 3pm. Opening hours will extend as the weather and hours of day light improve.

We may also open opportunistically on week days when the sun comes out and the winds stop blowing - we'll tell the world when this happens on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

If you want to be sure about our opening times on any particular week or day, please get in touch.

Freshly prepared food and homemade cakes

We always have a selection of freshly prepared food and homemade cakes, which are all vegetarian and/or vegan or gluten-free.


Teas, filter coffee, espresso, latte, cappuccino, flat white, mocha and hot chocolate, cold drinks and fruit juices.
Non-dairy milks - oat, soya and coconut - are available as an option.
