ROA Island House is situated on the peninsula of Morecambe Bay on Foulney Street, off Piel Street, and has parking for a few patrons.
The building is an old Victorian house with a veranda turned into a conservatory café, with outstanding views whatever the weather or time of year.
Roa Island House also has a lounge bar, dining room and guest accommodation and is conveniently located less than 45 minutes from the Lakes and only a ferry ride away from Piel Island, where you can meet the “King” and his “Knights!”
The Garden Sea View Café is a place to relax and unwind. You can sit in the conservatory with direct views out on to Morecambe Bay and Piel Island or you can take advantage of good weather and bask in our garden – which is ideal for children and families to eat, drink and play in.
Roa Island House has disabled access and welcomes dog owners, whose pets can also enjoy a free snack when their owners dine.
The Garden Sea View Café at Roa Island House has just unveiled its new summer menu offering extra treats, such as new hot/cold sandwiches and baguettes, fish and chips, jacket potatoes, salads and wraps and a whole host of cakes and slices to tempt you – not forgetting the famous Roa Island cheesecake!
The cafe also now has ice creams to eat in or take away. In fact most of its menu is available to take away – just ask one of the friendly staff. All menus are available to view online at www.roaislandhouse.co.uk.
