This cafe is right by the sea front. It is lovely and cosy inside and has a woodburner stove. It can get quite warm, therefore, there aren't any Windows that open! The staff always seem very friendly. The toilet could do with a bit of an upgrade.

We booked a table for 10 people and upon arrival noted there were only 8 place settings. Our order was taken by a lovely waitress who sadly didn't notice the lack of places. The pots of tea arrived but still no cous to drink with, in fact we had to help our selves to the cups. Next the food order... More

For a small, intimate place the menu is extensive. Literally something for everyone and everything prepared with exceptional attention to detail. Clearly a lot of effort spent in selecting fresh, high quality ingredients - our family of five visited twice and everything we tried was incredibly tasty. The only negative is the 3 planes it takes us to get there........ More

Was in the IOM to attend a family funeral and on arrival to the island, decided we needed a good breakfast to sustain for the day ahead. Only disappointment - it was not open as early as we would have liked, but returned and had the main cooked breakfast with coffee. Served with several pieces of bloomer style toast, it... More

Booked a party of fifteen of us (plus a toddler and a baby in a highchair) for Saturday lunchtime. Excellent service both with the booking experience and from the staff on the day, nothing was too much trouble and everyone really enjoyed their food.

Opposite the beach in Peel this is a small cafe/restaurant serving a varied menu. Service was friendly and food served quickly and was very nice. Cafe was very busy. Definitely worth a visit

They are very accommodating to bikers and all our rucksacks etc Can get quite busy so if you don't want to... More

Often described as your Granny’s front room our fine collection of china cups and tea-plates (many donated by happy customers and friends ) forms the backdrop to this traditional tearoom. Our log fire keeps customers warm in winter and the fine views of the beach and castle are second to none.Open throughout the year, our evening restaurants are especially popular so please remember to book . Local favourites are Peel Smoked Kippers our famous Battered Cod and Mrs Jones’s Rich Fruit cake and Tea-bread. Our homemade desserts with whipped Manx Cream are another great favourite.Evenings in Peel give customers a real treat, a three course meal plus coffee with plenty of choice and a great atmosphere. Peel is also popular as a venue for private dinner parties and can comfortably seat up to 35 guests. Our Peel restaurant in not licensed so feel free to bring along your own wine.
