Everything is positive about this place. The 'small' portion of mussels is massive and outstandingly delicious. The beef chilli was equally mouth watering. As always the staff are friendly and helpful. Wouldn't expect anything less in Watergate. We had a beautiful view of the bay,...More

A really vibrant and enjoyable lunch venue. Connected to the Watergate Bay hotel it's well worth booking as it gets very busy. A great spot for lunch after a morning of surfing with a good menu and reasonable prices for the quality.

Staying locally so booked for lunch particularly delighted to discover that dogs were also welcome. Plenty of choice on the menu. Good food, reasonably priced. Despite the restaurant being busy we weren't rushed. Will definitely visit again next time we're in Cornwall.

Definitely the beach hut or you could see if you could eat at Watergate Bay as they have a beautiful balcony overlooking the sea which is lovely for sunsets. We always eat at the beach hut and always ask to sit in the... 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.
