10 of the best seaside cafes and restaurants in the UK: readers’ tips2h 10 of the best seaside cafes and restaurants in the UK: readers’ tips
Our tipsters tuck into everything from good strong tea and cake to scallops and langoustines but all these coastal pitstops make the most of their gorgeous setting The Rosemarkie Beach Cafe is run by community volunteers and set on the beachfront looking over the Moray Firth towards Fort George, not far from Inverness. It’s dog-friendly and serves good strong tea, homemade cakes, and the best sausage and black pudding sandwiches. It’s also a good place to browse secondhand books and CDs, and a social history exhibition, about local wildlife. We were there on a cold March day looking for dolphins and had given up. Set up by cake, strong tea and pig, we bumbled down the wonderfully clean beach and there they were: a school of bottlenose dolphins, just offshore. A good day out and a memorable drive home to the sounds of a triple CD collection of classic Motown bought at the cafe.
