Great beach which seems huge when the tide is out. Great for surfers of all abilities and great for families in the summer

Visited with friends, we all had rump steak which was so incredibly tough I could hardly cut it and it was very expensive. Would not go there again.

The food at Surfside is good enough to enjoy by itself, but the view across the beach is stunning, especially at sunset. The atmosphere is best described as laid back, but that doesn't mean inattentive. Be prepared for some ingenious additions to the dishes on...More

Aargh. We were looking forward to a return trip but when we arrived for lunch (just after noon), there was no sign of life and no information eg 'opening at 1pm'. Disappointed :(More

We are sorry for the inconvenience. However, I feel that a 1 star review simply for being closed is extremely unfair. No assessment of food, service, ambience as you didn't even enter the building. You visited on the 5th September which was annual staff party...More

What fun! Apart from small sign in the sand you wouldn't know it was there! Such imagination has gone into this Caribbean style bar and BBQ. Friendly staff with great choice of rums. BBQ - jerk chicken, ribs, wraps all about £5, so very reasonable....More

I absolutely love the location and over the last few years have really enjoyed this restaurant. However, our visit this week was most disappointing and left me with a feeling of complacency towards their customers: I think when you pay £26 for surf and turf,...More

No! The only access is from the beach up steep steps. If it's a nice day ( maybe too late in the year now) you can eat outside - but there's no other way into the restaurant.

We welcome small, well behaved dogs but dogs aren't allowed on the beach between Easter and October at Polzeath.
