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.

We had a great lunch and were very pleased we booked as there was a stream of people coming in who hadn't booked and were turned away. The extreme chicken burger was great and the extreme hot chocolate was amazing. My daughters burger got a big thumbs up!

We went here on the recommendation of someone at 'Fifteen' upstairs as it was full for breakfast (they had a huge queue when the doors opened apparently!). Brilliant view and great food - watched surfers burn up calories while we ate several zillion! The staff weren't that smiley but the service was reasonably effiicient given how busy they were. Would happily go back.

Great place to sit back with a coffee and people watch - they take a particular pride with their Coffee Late - but it isnt cheap. Service is fine - but it does get busy when the sun shines!

Seems a very popular place with a good (if small) selection of food. Very small place and as a result very crowded, as the day we were there it rained, and lots of "surfers" crowded in without much hope of a table, most of them leaving when the weather improved. The food was good, but slow in arriving, but the staff were cheerful and attentive. Two major downsides....1)The gents toilets were VERY small & used by people off the beach to wash sand off & get changed. 2)I have never been to a restaurant before where they allow dogs (other than assistance dogs)in. They even go as far as supplying bowls for the dogs to drink from. Speaking as a dog owner I don't think this is a good idea in a restaurant, not really hygenic at all.
