With breathtaking views overlooking our Chepstow quarry, the View Café Bar serves an extensive range of hot & cold meals as well as a wide selection of beers, wines and soft drinks from the licensed bar. We also have two very posh coffee machines that make a lovely freshly ground coffee, perfect to prepare you for a morning dive.

The View Café Bar is for everyone; Divers and visitors alike are able to sit inside or out on the decked veranda. When you sit at one of our tables with the stunning views across the water you'll see why we've named our Cafe Bar 'The View'!

We have also just installed Free WiFi at the View Cafe Bar.

We just wanted to let you know what a fantastic night we had on Friday. We had a ball!  The wigwams were so much fun, and your staff were so accommodating!  

We would personally like to thank Nikki, who did a tremendous job with organizing our party, the room blew me away! All the bar staff that night were fantastic.  Also Jenni who organized a lot of us to do the zip slide on Saturday, she was also brilliant.  You can see that you've got great staff, who love their job!!.  We met so many of your staff over the weekend, they are a credit, and very friendly."

Thank you for helping us celebrate our 20th anniversary, and making it one to remember!
