“Great experience”
Reviewed August 1, 2014

Fantastic food - goodness knows how they achieve this sort of quality with such rudimentary facilities! We had lunch, on a beautiful sunny day, looking out over the beach. So pleased we made the push to find this place.

“Brilliant place”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

OMG found this place after it featured on the TV with Caroline Quentin and it is a true gem! Food so fresh, different, and menu changed often. Views amazing - was sad not to have more days to visit more!

Reviewed July 27, 2014

Hidden Hut has changed with an outdoor kitchen this year. It is great and will challenge many established lunchtime options. Just have to hope cliff erosion does not deprive us of this treat.

“Liked this place”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

It IS just a beach hut but it's a very good beach hut. I wouldn't travel from the other coast again to get here for lunch as we did. It's not THAT good. For novelty value, you'd be hard stretched to beat it.

It's a very sociable way of eating as there are long benches and tables under gazebos (and separate tables) but they don't really offer much shelter from the wind and rain - so choose your weather carefully.

It's a little bit pricey for a beach hut and it's not overlooking one of the best beaches in Cornwall but perhaps it looks better when the tide goes out.

If you're there for the feast nights, the toilets appear to be lit by candlelight!

Worth a trip for the novelty value (and if you've seen it on tv) but only if you're doing something else on the south coast.

“Recommended by friends and rightly so”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We popped down whilst visiting friends and found the place buzzing at lunch time. Still found a table and ordered our food after collecting drinks from the friendly ladies behind the counter. Both types of hot filled sandwiches we tried were excellent. Treated ourselves to one of their own Kelly's Icecreams - very nice. Excellent food for a good value
