We've had lunch here before but this time we ate dinner. We took our daughter and dog, both of whom were well catered for. The food was very good and the service excellent.

Dropped in at 12 after a lovely walk from Newquay, offered a perfect table in the conservatory, panoramic view of beach and sea. Excellent burger and my wife had some of freshest tasty mussels in her life. All topped off by excellent service.

Dogs are allowed and welcomed. Really dog friendly restaurant and the dogs are given a bowl of water. Only thing needed would be a dog food menu

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.
