If you've been to Portugal and marveled at the brilliant beach restaurants and wondered why we can't do this in the UK, then take a visit to Surfside beach restaurant on Polzeath beach. New this year is a stylish new addition to the great surfing beach at Polzeath. Accessible only via a short walk (150M) along the beach at what... More

Ordered rump steak which arrived drowned in salt which totally ruined the meal. Expensive and very poor value for money,

I'm very sorry you felt that way. Can I ask, did you make your opinion known to your waitress or waiter on the night? Laura More

Doombar on tap , view to die for and tucker to match plus Crayfish salad was one of the best I've had ever. Since been... More

We had not booked but the five of us(4 adults & 1 child) arrived at about six in the evening. Although fully booked for the evening the staff obligingly fitted us in. The staff are very welcoming and helpful in a relaxed and friendly manner. The décor is simple but tastefully done and is ideal for a beachside eaterie. The... More

Had lunch and dinner here during our stay in Polzeath and wish we had found it at the beginning of our holiday. Service was great, lobster, chocolate mousse and chocolate brownies delicious! Sunset amazing. Hope to be back next year.

Visited here as guests for birthday supper for 6. Casual dining style right on the sands of the beach. Complimentary mackerel pate and melba toast (superb) for starters outside & then dined inside on lobsters, fillet steak, salads & dripping fried chips. Gorgeous chocolate brownie & clotted cream/icecream for pudding. As previously reviewed - no finger bowls but invited to... More

We went here for our first night out in three months after having a baby - it was the perfect destination for a date night. Incredible views of the sunset, stunning food (the lobster was perfect) and great service. Thanks, we'll be back!

We visited Surfside twice for dinner during our 5 night stay in Polzeath recently. Under its new management it has been transformed into a casual and relaxed place to eat with simple but fitting decor for a beachside restaurant. Despite having only been open for 4 nights on our first visit, everything ran smoothly and we were treated to friendly... More

Stu and his crew have recently opened this beachside eatery and from its former car persona it is no a fresh, clean, simple beach restaurant. Big picture windows give you an uninterrupted view over Polzeath beach where you can chill out and drink a beer watching the sunset. We had a table of 4 adults and two children so two... More
