Lent to us by Natalia Solomons

The Riverside café is known to many islanders and was where Fred McCave had is museum. The property was built in 1907 by a member of the Seabrook Brewery family who called it St Hughs. It was a prominent feature of the seafront for many years.   We have on this site lots of details about the place over the years including some of the plans from 1907.

I remember the fire my dad went in there to see if he could help I vaguely remember him coming out with a scorched jacket
