This was our first visit to The Beach Hut since its refurbishment and we weren't at all disappointed. There were five of us and three dogs (who had had a great time on the fabulous beach beforehand) and we were all looked after extremely well. As soon as we arrived, our waiter brought a bowl of water for the dogs... More

RESTAURANT'S FAVOURITE REVIEW

We travel to Cornwall twice a year with our dog, we always take a trip to watergate bay it's her favourite beach, it's our favourite two because after a big long walk there's nothing better than heading into The Beach Hut for some tasty food and drink and watching the surfers while the pooch has a well earned nap. Great... More

We arrived and sat outside on the enclosed terrace right over the beach. Friendly service and the food was great - hot, well presented and served with a... More

Walked all the way along the coastal path from Newquay to Watergate Bay. Lovely food and lovely service although if you are sat in the door it can get very cold. The lovely young lady on the day did move us though although I think she got a ticking off from her manager.

We didn't book, so was really happy that there was a table in the conservatory for us that just needed clearing at approx 6:30pm. Despite the small heaters up on the wall, the wind coming under the windows at foot level and the constant opening of the door to the outside, made it baltic. We were sat in coats, feet... More

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.
