Eating at Morston Quay 

Our refreshments outlet has reopened and will initially be serving a limited range of takeaway hot and cold drinks and some light snacks. We’ve introduced new safety measures including screens at our till and collection points, and waymarked routes. We’ll also only be accepting card payment. We look forward to welcoming you back and know that you’ll support us to make this a safe experience for everyone. Feeling peckish or looking for a snack to fuel up for a walk? If you're out and about on the Norfolk Coast then why not drop in and visit our refreshment kiosk at Morston Quay.
