Whelk Coppers Tea Rooms

Local food & great coffee by the sea.

About Us


Family run...

The tea rooms were established in 1992 by Sandra & Peter Foster and is still owned and run by the same family.

The building was originally fisherman's cottages and has evolved ever since.  
The Tea Rooms are panelled in Indian Teak from a Royal Navy Frigate built in Calcutta in 1820 & the amazing wrought Iron gates were reputedly designed by Walt Disney, a friend of the original owner.

Open daily from 9-4. 

We open for the occasional evening for themed dinner nights, keep an eye out on social media or sign up to the newsletter as spaces are limited.


Love local

We believe in keeping things local and fresh. 

Our menu includes fresh local ingredients and everything is made to order. Cakes and scones are all homemade and baked in house by our staff.
We offer a range of homemade gluten free and dairy free options, including cakes, gluten free & vegan scones.
