“Worth looking for........”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Getting to Beesands is not that easy, especially in the summer season but it's well worth the effort.

Our first visit we bought a ready cooked Crab to take away, by far the best available locally and reasonably priced.

On our second visit we went prepared and took along our own Champagne, they were happy to provide sparkling clean glasses .

The food was very good indeed, all freshly caught and expertly cooked, served with a smile; what more can be asked for ?

Yes, it's a lot more expensive that take-away stuff but they do provide a really super service in an enchanted location.

Book a table, take along your own wines, take your time and enjoy the moment.

Just perfect.

“Fresh Fish !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013

First impressions were a little daunting but this was recommended by your members and it was brilliant with excellent cooking,excellent attitude,helpful,courteous,clean and friendly,all washed down with a party atmosphere.This restaurant (which we booked for one visit) not licensed BYOB,had fabulous views and fantastic freshly caught seafood. If your looking for something completely different and a bit off the wall GO and try it. Scallops and cuttle fish to die for,booked a further two times !

“A Fantastic Plaice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

If you like simple well prepared seafood look no further. If you want food served in an instant go to a chip shop! It's so nice that the food is freshly prepared and what better place to sit and wait looking over the bay sipping the wine you bought along yourself, which means great value. The staff are so friendly and will even provide champagne glasses should you require.

Don't expect the Ritz, but you will get a fantastic meal, great service in a location that takes a lot to beat. Make sure you book as seats are limited although you can eat on the picnic tables just off the beach if you wish.

I hope the format is not changed as I can’t see how you could make it any better!

“Great place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

We went over the August bank holiday and lucked out in managing to book a table. Very good service and food. Very fresh . They don't have a license so bring your own (no corkage) and they have wine coolers and wine glasses.
