Functions and Events
We have many years’ experience assisting in arranging everything from a simple family gathering, to wedding receptions & national surfing competitions.

Various options are available including hiring the entire café (indoors & outdoors), hiring sections of the café, as well as large table bookings (indoors & outdoors).

Our indoor capacity is around 50 guests (all seated) or 80 guests (mixture of standing & seated) using the main café area & lighthouse room.

Our outdoor capacity is around 80 guests. 30 guests on the upper deck (all seated), 20 guests on the lower deck (all seated) with a further 30-40 guests in the garden area (all seated on picnic benches).

Many different options are also available to cater your function, from a simple finger buffet, an old school BBQ to a full six course sit down set menu supper. We’re happy to assist you in putting together anything you’d like us to prepare for your guests, catering to all tastes & individual dietary/allergen requirements.

We have also acted as a central hub & caterer for many photography & film shoots on Gwithian Towans/Beach and the surrounding area, supporting the crew & cast with food, drinks & somewhere to shelter when the weather isn’t quite so welcoming…

We are also available for more regular ‘community events’ such as meetings, get-togethers, coffee mornings and charity/fun-raising events.

We’re more than happy to work with you to ensure your function or event is well-planned & delivered exactly as you like it…
