Description: 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.

“Great for snacks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 2, 2012

We stopped here twice whilst surfing (trying to) whilst in Watergate Bay. it's the only place really that you have available but the service was friendly, not loads of choice but all the food was great (especially the cream scones!). They don't even seem to mind when you fetch sand in which is a bonus! A tad expensive for just snacking at the beach but we ate there twice so must have had something!

“Fab Location, Fab Food, Fab Bar!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

We visited this amazing place whilst staying @ Watergate Bay Apartments - quite a few times I may add!
The menu isn't huge, but the food is fantastic and there's a fair enough choice, and the taste whatever we had was awesome!
The bar staff were lovely, and so friendly and welcoming - BUT the waitresses were awful. They were very abrupt, offish and two of them were very rude :-(( This was the only downside, and easily avoided by not eating in the restaurant, and eating outside or in the teeny bar area - BUT better than having to deal with waitresses who clearly would rather be somewhere else! Maybe having such an amazing view out to the sea made them peeved off!
The view is amazing, and we enjoyed watching the sun go down most nights of our stay sat on the decking veranda with a beer andan extreme hot chocolate :-))
Despite the stroppy waitresses, we definitely will return as the food, bar and location far outweigh their rudeness!!

The food was superb and the place has a great beach-side atmosphere. We ate in the restaurant and also had a take away on the beach - both were fantastic!

“What a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

It was so good that we kept going back! In the end we had dinner there twice and their "full English" cooked breakfast!

Delightful staff, great views of the surf breaking on the beach, fabulous tasting food, great coffee and not expensive (particularly having been upstairs to Fifteen)!
