Description: Welcome to Pedlars Inn. Established in 2004 as the first coffee shop inside the UNESCO Heritage Site, Galle Fort, Southern Sri Lanka. From humble beginnings, starting with only 4 tables and one member of staff, the café has developed into a must for all visitors. It now occupies the entire ground floor of the former British post office. Maintaining original features mixed with contemporary design to deliver a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Situated on the historic Pedlars Street at the heart of the Fort, Pedlars Inn provides the perfect respite to a busy day’s exploration of the Ramparts or indulging in the numerous shops and boutiques.

The staff do not care about customers at all - just for two of us they made a fuss about giving us a table when three were empty and finally they gave us one after standing there for 20 minutes and literally pleading with several staff

After that we ordered two Soft drinks and two main course - 30 minutes later after reminding them of atleast getting our drinks in the heat , there was no sign of the food or soft drinks

So wasting an hour with them we just got up and left and they didn’t have the courtesy to ask why are you leaving !!!!

We went to a place next door call Merchant where they welcomed us and gave some hungry customers some food and drink !!!!

Don’t waste time with this restaurant or maybe then they are just racist ! And we were not important as others

In any case avoid completely

Awesome place for a nice chilled time. Friendly staff and very attentive to your requests.

Food was delicious and flavourful until the last bite. Portion size was so good and filling for a great eater.

Overall the cafe has a different vibe and it is nice to be there when you visit Galle fort.

Really nice sea food - it's that simple.

(We were part of a tour group, table/numbers/food order booked in advance. On arrival there was total confusion over who was where, numbers and food. Not very professional).
