If you want to be stared at like something the cat dragged in and then spoken to by a member of staff in a surly tone then this is the place to visit. Customer service is obviously not high on their agenda

Often described as your Granny’s front room our fine collection of china cups and tea-plates (many donated by happy customers and friends ) forms the backdrop to this traditional tearoom. Our log fire keeps customers warm in winter and the fine views of the beach and castle are second to none.Open throughout the year, our evening restaurants are especially popular so please remember to book . Local favourites are Peel Smoked Kippers our famous Battered Cod and Mrs Jones’s Rich Fruit cake and Tea-bread. Our homemade desserts with whipped Manx Cream are another great favourite.Evenings in Peel give customers a real treat, a three course meal plus coffee with plenty of choice and a great atmosphere. Peel is also popular as a venue for private dinner parties and can comfortably seat up to 35 guests. Our Peel restaurant in not licensed so feel free to bring along your own wine.
