As a family we stay at Watergate Bay several times a year and have done for the last 6 years, one of the things we look forward to most is dinner at The Beach Hut, we book weeks before we arrive and on a 7 day break we would normally eat here 3 to 4 times, the specials keep the... More

First stop on our visit to Cornwall. Lucky we did as the next day it was closing for a refurb! Can't wait to see it now its been done up. Always a good choice of food, the coffee is great as they serve Origin coffee from Helston. And of course the view is spot on.

Beautiful location and chilled out bar... You can't go wrong. The staff were great with my 15 month old and we sat and watched my older child fishing on the harbour

The Beach Hit sits close to The Watergate Bay Hotel and next to Jamie's '15' . The service is quick and attentive and food is great. Their menu is caters for great breakfasts with good coffee and seafood at lunch and dinner time. Would definitely recommend the nachos and the mussels which were also excellent! We've had breakfast here too... More

We have been visiting the beach hut for over ten years and always look forward to a lovely meal. The Beach Hut has been recently re-fitted and I have to say it has lost many of its lovely features the main one being the many doors that open the whole place up to the outside in the summer. Whilst the... More

This cafe/restaurant has such a wonderful and unusual position. Access is either up from the beach or down steps from the road so it's not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties. The view over Fistral beach is wonderful. Service is good and staff are really friendly and the food is very good indeed, ranging from snacks to excellent meals.

Stumbled upon this absolutely delightful cafe/restaurant overlooking the stunning beach at Watergate Bay. Had a most delicious refreshment and made a promise to ourselves to return soon... Booked for lunch on Thursday!

A regular stop after a good walk on the beach. But had a nice surprise today, they have had a full refit. The Beach Hut was great before, but the changes they have made are all for the better. Only had the coffee and lemon drizzle cake as we had booked lunch elsewhere, but I wanted every plate of food... More

Went to the beach hut years ago when it WAS a hut - but it remains a great place to hang out or warm up, to get good food and drinks (from hot chocolate to wine or beer). Views fabulous and it's perfectly orientated around the beach.

Thank Emily D

The Beach Hut is well known as one of Cornwall's best beach-side hang-outs. Right on the sand at Watergate Bay, it's an easy, relaxed restaurant serving seasonal food amongst the hustle of beach life.

Open for breakfast, Sunday brunch, lunch and dinner, the menu is classic. The views are fantastic. Rarely quiet, The Beach Hut is a vibrant venue where the buzz of conversation rivals the sound of the sea.

Cornish fish will always be on the daily specials board and the menu is focused around steaks, burgers and shellfish with an emphasis on local, seasonal produce. Try the grilled Cornish rib-eye steak, the pulled pork sandwich or perhaps the Sri Lanka mussels with a side of sweet potato fries and chilli sea salt.
