Welcome to the friendlycosywelcomingdog-friendlyairyrelaxedlightfriendlycliff-toptastyhomelyqualitychild-friendlyvista-tastic Guardhouse Café!

We serve a range of local hot and cold food, fairtrade coffee, Teapigs tea, alcoholic and soft drinks – and of course the famous Guardhouse Cream Teas! Everyone is welcome, including four-legged family members.

Berry Head itself is a fantastic place to visit for a few hours. There is great walking and fishing; rare wildlife including regular sightings of dolphins and porpoise; the largest colony of Guillemots in the South of England; history in the form of the Napoleonic-era fort, cannon, and occasional reenactment battles. Berry Head has something for everyone (even before trying our fabulous food).
