The Beacon

The Beacon


The Wellington Bistro, set on the harbourside overlooking the historic harbour.
The bistro serves homemade food and we pride ourselves in using our award winning local Whitehaven butcher for our meat and potato pies and our Sunday roasts. Home baked cakes, scones and afternoon tea is served daily with panoramic views of the Historic Harbour. We also serve Italian Lavazza Coffee.
The Bistro is child friendly, with highchairs and plenty of space for buggies. We have a selection of hot and picnic style kids lunches available. As well as our seaside ice cream creations for the kids.
The bistro is wheelchair accessible with full disabled facilities.

Opening details

Tuesday to Sunday 10am to 4pm. The cafe will be open as normal during the time that the museum is closed for refurbishment.
