Independent, family run

Waterfront Café is an independent family owned and run business that’s steadily grown over the years. Chris, at the helm, has been operating the business for over 30 years, and has had a lifetime of working within the hospitality industry.

About Us

Locals will remember Waterfront Café starting as a small café and shop serving holidaymakers and boaters with souvenirs and grocery essentials. It’s changed a lot over time and is almost unrecognisable; with a decking area that keeps on growing every year and, more recently, outside heaters, retractable roofs and an ice cream bar have been installed ready for summer 2021.  

Today, Chris remains very hands on and is supported by his manager, daughter Gemma, wife and young children who often ‘help’ out. Of course, none of it would be possible without a strong team who work hard, particularly during the summer season, to offer first class food and service.  

Waterfront Café has always been, and always will be, a place for everyone; families, business people, friends, couples, gatherings, walkers, cyclists and passers by looking for a quick ice cream or celebratory dinner.


Everyone is welcome.
