Seaton Eats Boutique Seaton Eats Boutique
Seaton Eats Boutique
Seaton Eats Boutique is a chance to enjoy quality local street food in Jubilee Gardens over looking the sea in Seaton.
Drink in the views and soak up the beach, nourish your friendships and taste the world.
A chilled out vibe, no rush to get anywhere in particular, except to nab a chair at the table. The bar serves local ale, quality wine, and olives, along with fresh lemonade made to a secret recipe.
Everyone is welcome (except dogs – the aromas are just too good to ignore) and there is access for those on wheels, chairs for those who creak, and grass if you like a picnic rug. Perhaps you prefer a quieter spot somewhere along Seaton’s mile long stretch of pebble beach.
Open from 5pm – 9pm
