If you don’t have time to stop for long, a takeaway outlet is located on the left hand-side as you walk through the doors (open from 10am-4pm during school holidays and weekends). And pup owners will be pleased to hear its dog-friendly inside and out.

On the menu you’ll find burgers, steaks, fish and chips, stuff for kids and cocktails. Look out for their themed bottomless brunches. With a stunning seafront backdrop, you’ll want to bag a spot on the outdoor terrace to drink in the waterfront views in balmy weather.

Perched on Weston’s seafront at the far end of town, towards Birnbeck Pier, the Captain’s Cabin terrace is hard to beat on a sunny day. Picture an outdoor bar, live music and a pint in had as the sun goes down and waves lap against the rocks, but a stone’s throw away.

New owners are keen to make Captain’s Cabin the local landmark pub that it deserves to be. Keep an eye on social media for events.
