I can’t recommend this place highly enough. It’s a small, cosy restaurant (not cramped though) with unbeatable views of Polzeath beach: the perfect place to watch the sunset. The decor is well thought out and relaxed. The music was excellent and the staff were friendly...More

Had the most amazing lunch at the Surfside. Beautiful view and outstanding food. Would highly recommend it. Would equally match any fine dining restaurant we have been to.

Great beach which seems huge when the tide is out. Great for surfers of all abilities and great for families in the summer

Visited with friends, we all had rump steak which was so incredibly tough I could hardly cut it and it was very expensive. Would not go there again.

No! The only access is from the beach up steep steps. If it's a nice day ( maybe too late in the year now) you can eat outside - but there's no other way into the restaurant.
