More than just afternoon coffee

We walked in to just have coffee and cake. Was directed to the Rotunda bar. The coffee was excellent (we're fussy with coffee) and came with a two pack of very nice biscuits. We also ordered cake of the day also good. Was a bit pricey but worth it for the view of the sea and the interior decor... read more

You can get small snacks and enjoy the view over the bay in this stylish Art Deco bar. Staff is very friendly and professional. Prices are on the higher side however.

The Rotunda Bar can be accessed from the Morecambe promenade or through the Midland Hotel and it is a wonderful piece of restored art deco architecture. Big windows, murals on the walls, imposing art deco lighting hanging over the bar and here you can have specialist coffees, tapas or gourmet hotdogs. The views over the Bay to the Lake District...
