Information about us

The Driftwood is a licensed 1930’s beachside Cafe and Restaurant alongside the Coast path, with the beach in front of the cafe and the West Somerset Railway running directly behind it.

The Blue Anchor steam railway station is only 50 metres away!

We have seating inside, outside and a sheltered verandah to suit the weather and seasons.

We are renowned for our breakfast offering served until 3:30pm along with our fish and chips and other fish dishes and our ice cream Kiosk during the warmer months.   The menu also includes many other options, from a children’s sandwich to a Pork and Apple burger.

If it is just a quick stop, then we have much to offer, with many different drinks either on their own or combined with a traditional cream tea or one of our home-made cakes.

We are just 3 miles from Watchet on the B3191 (the coast road between Watchet and Minehead) and at the beginning of the section of the coast path that runs directly between the beach and the coastal railway track (running both Steam and Diesel trains) - with the sight of Dunster Castle in the background!

Please come and visit us and the beautiful countryside surrounding us and don’t worry, we are child, dog and muddy walker friendly!
