Description: 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.

You can count the number of quality restaurants that offer waterfront dining on one hand in this country - and this is one of them.

Don't bother to dress up; its strictly a flip flops place in the day and deck shoes at night.

Food menu is quite small but what is on offer is done very well - it's not a cafe so don't expect cafe prices but you do get what you pay for. Great food, great view, relaxing atmos'.

All good.

Having read negative reviews of the restaurant we decided to just pop in for a drink as it was a beautiful evening and the views are fab. We were greeted by a very friendly man who made us feel very welcome so enquired about the chances of a table (it was a Saturday night at about 7.30pm!). They had just had a cancellation so we struck lucky.

The food was lovely (tho a bit limited if you don't eat fish). But it was the lovely service from the man who welcomed us to the waitress at the table who was friendly and chatty! The view out of the window was also wonderful. We had a really nice evening and would definitely go back - the great service makes all the difference!

We had a great lunch and were very pleased we booked as there was a stream of people coming in who hadn't booked and were turned away. The extreme chicken burger was great and the extreme hot chocolate was amazing. My daughters burger got a big thumbs up!

We went here on the recommendation of someone at 'Fifteen' upstairs as it was full for breakfast (they had a huge queue when the doors opened apparently!). Brilliant view and great food - watched surfers burn up calories while we ate several zillion! The staff weren't that smiley but the service was reasonably effiicient given how busy they were. Would happily go back.

Great place to sit back with a coffee and people watch - they take a particular pride with their Coffee Late - but it isnt cheap. Service is fine - but it does get busy when the sun shines!
