Staff here were really friendly and helpful when I arrived. They found me a table outside on the balcony where I made myself comfortable. It really is a great position and I was able to relax looking out st the vast expanse of beach and watch the rollers coming in with varying degrees of skills from the surfers. The menu... More

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 were visiting Cornwall and met a friend who lives locally for lunch here. She had had many good experiences of dropping in for late/ breakfast or early lunch but unfortunately this was not to be for us. The cafe had closed for some rebuilding in January and she commented that they'd changed the menu. The mussels I had were... More

I am not sure that the refurb has improved The Beach Hut. Still fabulous with wonderful views but something appeared to be missing. No specials on the board and no draught beer did not help. However the same lovely attitude from the staff.

Having visited the Beach Hut for breakfast last year it was high on our list of places to visit for lunch. Despite being out of season they were fully booked. However, after a short wait we were found a table and proceeded to enjoy a lovely lunch. This really is a fabulous location and well worth a visit. Would definitely... More

As locals we would visit several times per year. Mainly in winter when. Not so busy. Today 18th March we planned to visit as part of birthday and wedding anniversary celebrations. The place has undergone a makeover. Which seems like they have just crammed more tables in. There is no longer draft beer. And a 500ml bottle of lager is... More

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.
