Have yet to experience a 'feast night' event but the experience on a normal day's dining is 100%. There's no pretence nor illusions of grandeur - the Hidden Hut achieves excellence as its norm. The daily dishes are imaginative and have never disappointed. Happy diners.

Not so hidden and probably becoming deservedly less so, more and more! Fantastic location, no frills, but really nice food. Between us we had two different soups, Cornish pasty, sausage rolls, and various drinks, all were excellent. We were there on nice sunny but windy...More

We visited the Hidden Hut today and what a fantastic day it was in Cornwall, blue skies all the way. We walked with our golden retriever puppy and had lunch, a brilliant lunch of seafood soup and gorgeous flavoursome rolls. We had wanted to visit...More

We also took our older dog and parked at the bottom of road and walked across the beach which would be better than walking from car park just before portscatho.
