More About Us

Welcome to The Sea Shanty Beach Café set upon the beautiful unspoilt beach at Branscombe, the heart of East Devon’s ‘Area of Outstanding The Sea Shanty CafeNatural Beauty’.

‘The Sea Shanty Tea Rooms’ has been offering homemade lunches and cream teas to walkers of the South West Coast Path and beach lovers since 1943.

Now offering top quality locally sourced ingredients our food remains home cooked and freshly prepared to order. We offer an informal and relaxed family atmosphere, serving traditional home made food with an emphasis on seafood. We received The 2014-15 award for ‘Best Café’ at the Food and Drink Devon awards!

The Sea Shanty Beach Café is lucky enough to be surrounded by quality food producers. Fresh crab is landed on the beach right outside the café by John and local ales come from the micro brewery a stone’s throw away.
All of our breads, cakes and treats are made at our own bakery in nearby Sidmouth.
Organic, free range eggs come from neighbouring Bulstone Springs and our salad and herbs are grown in the village and brought in the morning they are picked by Jenny. You really couldn’t get more local, fresh or delicious! Find out more about our local suppliers

We offer a warm welcome to all, including dogs and families.
