It's been closed on the two most recent occasions that I've walked along the seawall. Just now in the glorious sunshine (as per the weather forecast) and before then on the opening day of the seawall when there was (like today) also crowds of people walking to and from the warren.
Sue and Andy told me they keep watch along the sea wall and close when it's appropriate.
TO ALL DAWLISH TRADERS, CAFES AND RESTAURANTS
Please please stay open for longer hours, you can't just open when you feel like it.
Particularly in the evenings, most of the shops and cafes are shut and holidaymakers have to go elsewhere.
A lot of shops close when it rains never understood their thinking.
It's probably no coincidence that every time I go past Gay's Creamery it's packed with customers - it's open til 9pm and 7 days a week. Meanwhile this summer I've passed Witches Bowl, Reflections and Dabbling Duck in the afternoon and they've been shut. I haven't figured out if they've closed down or open and close when they feel like it.
