Pier Cafe


Whether you're visiting the aquarium or just exploring the harbour area everyone is welcome to enjoy the cafe facilities.

COVID 19 Secure measures:

We are now only offering table service and takeaways. Please find yourself a table and a waiter will be with you. For takeaways please queue up at the takeaway table and wait to be served. Please look around the site for the menu. Tables and chairs will be cleaned and sanitized between customers and we would ask all customers to use hand sanitizer before they enter into the aquarium building to pay for takeaway or use the shop. 

Our popular cafe offers a wide variety of fairtrade teas, freshly ground coffee, locally sourced luxury dairy ice cream in tubs, cream and savoury teas,  delicious variety of cakes, snacks and cold drinks. Award winning pasties and hot sausage rolls are available (subject to demand) all year round.  All items are sensibly priced and served with a smile by our friendly staff.

Facilities include a sheltered, outside seating area which can be a lovely sun-trap throughout the day. The space adjoins a large pedestrian area which is great for kids.

From the outside cafe space, specatacular views can be enjoyed of 'Verity'. At 20.25m tall and weighing 25 tonnes this bronze statue was at the end of 2012 commisioned by the internationally acclaimed artist and local resident Damien Hirst. This impressive statue is located 100m from the aquarium, at the end of the Pier and is on loan to the North Devon District Council.

Adjacent pier parking and modern toilets are also both conveniently available.
