With a wide range of speciality coffees, home cooking and baking and the biggest choice of delicious Frederick’s Dairy Ice Cream flavours this side of Chorley, “The Beach Hut Coffee Shop” at Preston Marina has been a favourite with our boat-owners and all comers since we opened in 1990.

Many non-boating people find the relaxing and quiet atmosphere an ideal meeting place and we often welcome Prestonians returning from away who are amazed at the changes they see at the old Preston Docks, while others use it as a watering hole when enjoying a cycle ride or stroll along Preston’s Guild Wheel, which we are right beside. We are very cyclist friendly with plenty of bike racks onsite.

During the week many of the thousands of people now working in offices on the Docklands find it a great break from the office at lunchtime. Our Coffee Shop staff work hard to offer a variety of tasty snacks.

On a sunny day the scene takes on a continental atmosphere with al fresco dining away from the office and phone.

From July 2020 we are delighted to annouce that the Beach Hut Coffee Shop now has a licenced bar and a Pizzeria (Thurs – Sat).

Also – we have the “Doggy Diner” – a special area of the coffee shop where dogs are very welcome – with a special Doggy Menu.
