Housed beneath Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen restaurant, the Beach Hut is surely one of the best beachside eateries of its kind in north Cornwall. Inside, Californian chic meets Cornish cool, but the eye is naturally drawn to what is arguably the region’s top surf beach. Great burgers, locally caught mackerel (fried or grilled) & more pricey rib-eye steaks are the staples, preceded perhaps by squid with aïoli & lemon or local crab with a seaweed & cucumber salad, ponzu & wasabi dressing. Friendly, efficient staff complement the laid-back vibe, & the child-friendly ethos extends to activity books & crayons as well as child seats. Meanwhile, grown-ups can chill out with local beers or Addlestones cider, plus affordably priced wines: try the fruity sweetness of a cool Chardonnay/Torrontes blend as the perfect antidote to a morning in the surf.
