The Fort Cafe offers the ideal setting for Alfresco dining overlooking the sea in Sidmouth. Many of our customers enjoy breakfast, lunch or just tea and coffee outside even in midwinter on dry days as it acts as a sun trap.

Live music on Friday 3 and Saturday 4 June. 

Join us for cool Jazz with the Andy Williamson Trio on Friday 3 June from 12 Midday and  authentic Delta Blues with Jeff “The Horse” Horsey on Saturday 4 June from 12 Midday. 

In summer it is very popular and an ideal place to meet with friends. Inside or out we offer a wide range of food and drinks including breakfast, lunch, sandwiches, cakes, toasted sandwiches & paninis, pasties ,burgers, cod & chips and salads. Our crab salad is very popular.

There is also a children’s menu and desserts for those with a sweet tooth.

We also sell our own homemade ice cream and buckets and spades and more for the beach.

We have daily deliveries of fresh locally supplied vegetables, bread, meat, fish and crab and to wash it down there is local beer and cider.
