Dropped in for late lunch after a walk along the beach. Hadn't realised what a great reputation it had. So the high quality of the food and service was a lovely surprise. Ate in the conservatory area, fantastic views over the beach and really warm. Chose Bengal chicken curry and fish and chips from the special board - really excellent.

Have been here many times and has always been a favourite however something has changed, ( management?) Food was good but not great as before, service was OK but not as before. We ordered fish & chips off the children's menu, this was such a large portion, too much and off putting for a little one. Come on Beach Hut... More

We had a lovely birthday breakfast on the way home from a wonderful week in Mawgan Porth. We asked for a table in the conservatory as we have two Weimaraners and also had a baby in a buggy. The first thing the waiter provided was a bowl of water for the dogs - nice touch. We had a great breakfast... More

We were experiencing 'taste of the bay' and had a lunch time booking, service was good, staff welcoming. I had mussels mulinere starter with fish Thai curry.....both were cooked beautifully. My husband had Clam chowder starter with Chicken belt burger....... Portion sizes were generous...... we felt we needed a coastal path walk to 'burn lunch off'.

We had breakfast here one day and an evening meal another day. The atmosphere is casual and relaxed but the staff are attentive and service was great, and the food was excellent.

The Beach hut has always been our favourite place to go when staying at the Hotel but sadly it wasn't up to scratch this time... Nothing went right for us on the day....except that my son loved his pasta and I enjoyed my fish. Service was very slow, it was freezing indoors and my husbands food was significantly below par....

This place is divine I'm here with friends family and on business all the time! The fish is locally caught and they make a big fuss of our Frenchies!! Great for a cream tea as well when you come off the beach. Felafel burger lovely and the staff can't do enough for you or your furry friends. Dog friendly which... More

It's been a few years since we last visited but we headed down on a mild, dry November day for lunch with a stunning view. It's a fairly limited lunch menu but we all opted for various burgers which were lovely and generous portions. They were also good value for money however I felt the kids meals which were just...

Our granddaughter saw the food being served as she looked through the window when we were having drinks on the terrace one lunch time. She remarked how nice and fresh the food looked and asked if we could return in the evening. We booked the last table available and enjoyed a great meal with excellent service. We can highly recommend... More

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.
