EATING OUT
Beer and the surrounding area has a wide selection of places to eat. Amongst the most notable are:

Also, Osborne’s Coffee and Wine Bar, opposite Steam Gallery – opened in spring 2014, informal comfortable setting for coffee, drinks, light food, an excellent addition to the village.
Beach cafes In season there are four open air beach cafes selling snacks, refreshments and light meals. Beer beach is south facing and backed by white cliffs. It is a wonderful heat trap.
