We visited on a very wet and windy day in early March. Inside was warm, snug and some of the best seafood I have had in a long time. A mix of people eating lunch and walkers popping in for coffees. It is quite snug inside - you share tables - and if, like us, you have a big dog,... More

Great food, too crammed, too expensive. That's basically it. Love the place very much and have been here a few times with family and friends. In fact my son got engaged on Beach and we all had a great meal. We were crammed in and it was very uncomfortable. The bill was outrageously expensive for what we got. We retired... More

We ate here for my son's birthday on a Friday evening. The fish was great, we had fried squid and prawns in chili for starters which we shared as the starters are large and crab and fish goujons for our main. The portions are all big so unless you are really hungry you can probably get away with a starter... More

After walking from Hope Cove in the very gusty wind & rain we were so pleased to have a hot drink and to get warm before our return walk. Not much room inside - seating outside if weather fine. Menu looked good. It is right by the National Trust Car Park.

Stumbled across this little place after walking the dog on a wet and windy beach! Cosy is how I'd describe the Cafe, perched just above the beach with great views of the stretching coast line. There were four of us, three got involved with the beautiful mussels and frites whilst the other devoured a splendid fresh crab salad all washed... More

Love the Beach House. If you are expecting luxury seating then avoid it! Much more fun on the benches in the beach house. Amazing food and delicious coffee and hot chocolate. Well worth queuing as the end result is great. Best to book as they are always packed. I just love it

Despite the dreadful weather forecast we were determined to have lunch here. We discovered this beach 'shack' yesterday which was completely packed out with punters on a grey wet day, so we knew it had to be worth the effort to come back. We were not disappointed. Having pre-booked our lunch table it was still bursting with customers albeit with... More

Came here for lunch on a blustery feb day after a walk on the beach, it was cosy and atmospheric. Lovely service, quirky fun interior with lots to look at and most of all the food was so good. Had mussels which were perfect, and husband had crab salad and delicious local beer. Reluctant to review positively as don't want... More

Very lucky to be able to book a last minute table. The Beach House is in an ideal situation near a National Trust car park and just off South Milton Beach. Inside it is long wooden tables and benches. Expect to share your table with others. Food is served on metal plates,bowls and wooden boards. All the menus are written... More

The coffee was good. The cake a bit tired. The cafe was packed. lots of sand and dogs, it is right by a nice big dog walking beach. All a bit crammed in for my liking, benches and trestle tables is the style. Everything looks a bit greasy grubby with allsorts hanging everywhere. This ads a nice character but it... More
