If you're in need of a drink, snack or light meal our food & beverage team are happy to help! Take a look at our opening times to see when we're open.

If you're in need of fuel for those walks, or a tasty reward on your return, our food & beverage team are happy to help! We have a range of hot and cold drinks available, as well as snacks and light meals.

Full details of our opening hours can be found here.

Bring your own cup

If you bring your own clean re-usable cup when making a purchase of a hot drink then you will receive a 25p discount, saving you money whilst helping us reduce our environmental impact.

Hygiene & safety

There are protective screens around our tillpoint and collection areas. Face coverings are now a personal choice. We can accept cash, but we would still prefer card payments – either contactless or chip and pin.

Indoor seating is available both downstairs, and upstairs in the lookout, and the picnic tables are available for outdoor seating. Litter bins have been made easily accessible for your rubbish – please help us keep Dunwich Heath tidy and a safe place for nature.

All proceeds go towards the conservation of Dunwich Heath so thank you for your support!
