Prom Café

view of prom cafe with sea in background


Located at the heart of Bournemouth’s award-winning seafront, the new-look Prom Café now has more space inside so you can enjoy a beachside bite to eat without the fear of a good ol’ British downpour. And there’s still plenty of outdoor seating, perfect for al fresco snacks and soaking up the sea views on sunny days.

The menu is packed with firm favourites meaning you don’t have to stray far from the sand for fish ‘n’ chips, a pasty or a ’99, as well as lighter lunch and vegetarian options.

In the summer months, pick up cold drinks from the chiller or choose from a selection of New Forest Ice Creams. You can even cool down your four-legged friends with doggie iced treats! Later in the year, you’ll find hot chocolate and a great choice of winter warmers awaiting you at the end of a brisk, waterfront walk or coastal adventure.

Open from 8am until 10pm seven days a week, the Prom Café keeps Bournemouth’s beach-goers’ hunger at bay for their entire stay. Start the day with a full English, stock up with a coffee to go or stop by in the afternoon for a traditional cream tea.

Just a stone’s throw from the UK’s best beach, there’s nowhere better to keep the family fuelled for a day beside the seaside!

We are completely dog friendly too, so your four legged friend will be made to feel as welcome as you do!
