Tasty treats at the White Cliffs of Dover

Our café is a great way to wind down after a long walk across the iconic cliffs. Enjoy views of the world’s busiest passenger port as you merrily sip your tea and cake. Or why not join us for lunch?

Fancy a nibble?

Sink your teeth into Britain’s most loved sweet treat; fruit scones. Our homemade scones are created by caring hands each day on sight by our chefs. Try our cream tea for one offer (scone, jam, clotted cream) for just £3.25.

All our cakes are also homemade on site with tempting treats such as: a classic Victoria sponge, flapjacks, shortbread, orange and lemon cake, raspberry and coconut cake and many more.

Something light for lunch

Every day we serve lights lunches from 12 until 2:30. All of which are, of course, homemade fresh on site by our chefs. Lunch options consist of both hot and cold meals such as: a chicken caesar salad, jacket potatoes with a choice of toppings, a white cliffs rarebit, a pasta mozzarella salad and a hot one pot. All of which will vary depending on the season.

Sandwiches are made daily on the premises with homemade fillings. These will change accordingly to the season so as to use the best local and seasonal produce.

Visit us at different times of the year and you’ll discover a new variety of sweet treats and savoury bites. As part of the new cook book scheme across all national trust sites we change our menu and cakes seasonally.

Come and get it!

Feeling thirsty?

The café will provide you with all your tea and coffee needs. All coffee beans are of good Fairtrade quality which means that your caffeine fix will be greatly satisfied.

 We also offer a wide variety of herbal teas such as peppermint and earl grey. We use Yorkshire English breakfast tea which has been highly complimented so you’re bound to come back for a top up.

Got veg?

The chefs in the café use our on-site veg plot. This is managed by our plant fair volunteers and helps to provide ingredients for food.

We use the herbs in our lunch meals and fruit such as raspberrys and redcurrants in some of our cakes. We try our best to locally source our ingredients wherever we can.

How you help

The National Trust is a charity. This means that every time you visit the White Cliffs of Dover you are contributing directly to our conservation work locally.  So remember, every scone you buy helps us care for the places you love.
