Here at Southwold Pier whilst we have been away, we have been busy preparing for our return and ways in which we can make our guests and teams feel as safe as possible.

We have reviewed all our procedures to ensure the safety of our guests and our teams is at the forefront of everything we do.  We might look a little different, but we are still the same on the inside.

Here are just a few of the measures that we are currently putting in place –

  • Large stocks of safety equipment available for all of our team.
  • Strict cleaning schedules for all areas.
  • Social distancing fully implemented in all areas; we like to wave at everyone for now.
  • Our staff have been trained to prevent the spread of COVID-19 prior to returning to work.
  • Food and drinks served individually and prepared under the strictest regulations.

The team are really looking forward to seeing you return to the Pier soon.

The Clockhouse

Sorry, we are closed today

The Clockhouse is a great place for relaxed snacks and meals, all the day round.

Skipped breakfast to get to the Pier nice and early? You’ll be delighted to discover our Patisserie range, which we offer until 11.30am.

You might prefer morning coffee and cake. Our Baristas are fully trained to serve you a quality espresso (and a wide range of other coffees, too) and the Clockhouse’s cakes and pastries are handmade. Of course, there’s tea and fabulously indulgent hot chocolate with all the trimmings.

If you’re peckish at lunchtime, you can choose from a selection of hot and cold light dishes, from sandwiches and wraps, to paninis and bakes. We’ve a good selection of cold drinks to go with them, including softs, beer and wine.

The Clockhouse’s Afternoon Tea is justifiably famous, and a key element of some of our regular visitors’ day out at the Pier. It’s the full spread including home-made scones, cream and jam (and since we’re proudly of Suffolk, not Cornwall, we don’t mind in the least if you put your jam or cream first!).
