Sladers Yard Cafe Counter

Our warm friendly Café is open all day every day serving very fresh, locally produced, home-cooked lunches, snacks and cakes. We specialise in Mediterranean and Moorish cooking with daily seafood specials. We offer a range of gluten-free lunches and cakes.

Fresh local seafood specials every day, mezze platters to share (suitable for vegetarians and vegans), sumptuous crab sandwiches, soups, salads, stews and main meals. We serve local organic juices and soft drinks, a full wine list, local beers and cider as well as spirits and liqueurs. To follow we have dreamy home-baked cakes and puddings, organic Arabicaffé coffee and speciality teas. Wonderful homemade fruit or plain scones are cooked here every day for perfect cream teas or cheese scones for savoury snacks.

We are close to the beach, harbour and coast path, an easy riverside walk from Bridport. Come for a late French breakfast, coffee and a cake, mouth-watering lunch, reviving tea or an evening drink. Enjoy our large new indoor dining room or bask in the flower-filled yard. Unwind & enjoy an inspiring day out.
