Turn a trip to the beach into a day out. At Knoll Beach café and shop you’ll find a friendly welcome all year round.

Knoll beach café 

Drop by and enjoy something delicious from our café with views overlooking Studland Bay and Old Harry Rocks. The café is open every day 9.30am-5pm to dine in or take away.

Find a seat with a view inside the cafe or soak up the sun on our dog-friendly patio outside just metres from the beach with views across the bay and Old Harry Rocks. We are only able to welcome assistance dogs only inside the café.

Choose from a variety of hot and cold drinks, home-baked cakes, light snacks and hot food including toasted sandwiches, soups & one pots and returning soon, Fish & Chips. We always have ice cream available, and endeavour to have our scooping stations open in good weather.

If you have specific dietary requirements please take the time to check the menus, our friendly team are also able to provide allergen information.

Remember your reusable cup
Every time you present a reusable cup when you order a hot drink at one of our cafes, tea rooms or kiosks, we'll give you 25p off as a thank you for helping the environment by reducing the number of disposable cups used. This promotion replaces the hot drinks loyalty card scheme, which closed in February 2021.

We are experiencing significant disruption with supply chain and staffing at the moment, please accept our apologies we're not always able to offer a full menu. We may at short notice have to adjust opening hours.

Knoll beach shop 

Our shop is open 9.30am - 5pm and offers something for everyone. At the Knoll Beach Shop we have everything you need for a day by the sea, as well as stocking a broad array of quality souvenirs, books, foods, and household items. And when the holidays roll around, we'll be right here with seasonal decor and gifts.

Whether it’s environmentally-friendly swaps for a more sustainable life, a gift for a loved one or an indulgence for yourself, every purchase helps us look after Studland Bay for everyone, for ever.
