Whether you're touring the lighthouse or walking on The Leas, the Lighthouse Cafe is the perfect spot to refuel. Why not pop into the shop to pick up a souvenir of your visit too.

The Lighthouse Cafe

Our cafe offers a welcoming pit stop for lighthouse visitors and anyone exploring The Leas or Whitburn Coastal Park. 

Grab a hot or cold drink and treat yourself to a snack such as a homemade scone or slice of cake. Or enjoy a light lunch; we offer a selection of sandwiches as well as soup of the day and baked potatoes with a choice of filling. 

A children's lunch box is a handy way to feed the little ones, whether you're eating in or heading for outdoors a picnic.

Our local speciality is Singin' Hinnies - a kind of griddle scone which makes a whistling or "singing" sound whilst cooking. 

Download our menu below and check the cafe's blackboard for daily specials when you visit.
