Visited here a couple of times and enjoyed the food both times. A little on the pricy side but it's a beautiful location and the portions are generous. First visit I had nachos - the small option which was still a big pile! My Mum asked that our drinks (tea) arrive before the food as when she visited in the... More

We returned here on Christmas Eve as we were staying just down the road and we knew that they were very dog friendly. On a previous occasion we didn't have the best food experience but gave them the benefit of the doubt as a one off on a busy day. We were right, it was a one off and they... More

We called here several times over a 4 night stay at Rocklands Newquay, the location, food and drinks and service provided by very friendly staff were all sublime. Sitting here just with a coffee is such a relaxing and positive experience. Everyone in this area should try this place, whoever conceived this and manages it deserves recognition- WHAT A PLACE!!!!

Booked a early teatime table for New Years Eve (young kids) and it was amazing! We were seated at a huge table by the window and both the service and food was faultless. Burger and poppy slaw delicious as was the fish masala, chicken burger and fish cakes. Kids enjoyed their portion of fish and chips and bolognese! The nachos,... More

Six of us went for lunch having walked across the cliffs from Mawgan Porth. Nice family vibe. Casual dining - no issues with our walking attire. Food was good but there was a mistake with one of the mains orders not being made. Not sure if it was the waiter or the kitchen. We suspect the latter. To be fair... More

We have been traveling to Cornwall for a number of years and this is one of those places we always stop for food. They are very busy there but somehow we tend to get table. Their specials are special and food in general is very tasty plus you get a great view with it. Reasonably priced I would recommend this... More

Late December dinner, overlooking Watergate Bay, sat in The Beach Hut enjoying life and reflecting on what 2016 meant for us. We try to visit The Beach Hut each time we visit Cornwall knowing what a great experience it will be and once again we weren't disappointed, although a room next door would have been a nice way to end...

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.
