Where to eat

At Colwell Bay you do have a selection of a few places to eat and drink.  Note the cafe, bar and restaurant are only open during the tourist season (usually Easter – September).  Check with the individual operator before heading out!

Captain’s Cabin – is a beach side cafe located at the bottom of Colwell Chine on the right hand side.  It serves breakfast, hot lunches, hot and cold drinks and ice creams.

Longbeach Bar is located above the Captain’s Cabin at the bottom of Colwell Chine.  It has limited opening hours in the summer season.  The bar has fantastic views across the Solent. Open to residents and non-residents of Longbeach. Also provides bar food during certain times of the day. Great authentic space invaders arcade game as well (20p ago!).

‘Barefoot on the Beach’ closed at the end of 2012 and has been replaced by a new beach side restaurant called ‘The Hut‘ which opened on the 1st May 2013. At the bottom of the slip road, turn left along the front and you will find the restaurant. You can sit inside or, if the weather is glorious, there is plenty of outside seating.  For reservations contact reservations@thehutcolwell.co.uk or call 01983 898 637
