An excellent 'on the beach' Bar & Bistro with a view to die for! Exquisite foods and friendly staff! Fantastic decor for a seaside cultural. A stone throw from the campsite.

Great food, lovely staff and perfect location. The mackerel burger was gorgeous as were the exciting sides - from apple slaw to chilli cheese fries. Brilliant!

We ate here one evening after a recommendation from the owner of the B&B we were staying in. The meal was very pleasant and worth the money. The restaurant is located right on the beach and has great views out to sea. Would happily return.

The restaurant has been rebranded as HubBox (there are others in the same chain in Cornwall, according to members of our party that live locally). It's basically an American-style diner on the beach, within the Pentewan Sands camping site. We went on a Saturday night...More
