Came back after our first visit last year. It was a lot sunnier so our early evening dinner would have been like an oven in the restaurant, luckily they had a table outside that someone vacated. The food and beer were great, oysters to start followed by surf and turf which was fab with rib and lobster two ways. Watched... More

This restaurant has used its location to the full. Guests can enjoy drinks relaxed on large bean bags on the beach chilling in the sun. The food is delicious...we can highly recommend the 'Surf and Turf', the 'Mussels', the 'Oysters' and the 'Iced Crab'. The beef in the 'Surf and Turf' melted on the tongue! The menu is simple, focussed... More

Visited Polzeath and saw Surfside with it's giant outdoor beanbags. That was it-our 12 year old had to sit on one. Had to wait till they became vacant before pouncing but worth it. Cool drinks did the job on a hot day.

Went there today for lunch. Brilliant food and service. We also took my 12 year son and his three mates. They all said it was the best burgers they've ever had. Top place.

Tonight in specific I would have chosen the whole lobster but the waiter mentioned the special of the day which as shark steak so I decided to try it! TRUELY amazing, the steak itself was cooked...

I took my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday and we both had a brilliant time. We were mainly served by Joe who gave us fantastic service; prompt, polite and very efficient. The food was lovely, I had a vegetarian bean burger which was great and my girlfriend took the lobster which she thoroughly enjoyed and she couldn't recommend it... More
