Really lovely restaurant, great views, great service boyfriebd really enjoyed his BH burger, and would recommend the Asian salad ...however, I wouldn’t order the beef stew again which was very, a bit chewy and the potato’s were over cooked and very dried up. Would definitely choose something different next time but hasn’t put me off going again. See More

Myself and a friend went in we were told there were seats in the conservatory, we went though and sat down there was nothing to say it was waitress serve so on the way to the toilet my friend ordered ...our coffees, after about 10 minutes of being seated a waitress came over and asked if were ready to order, my friend said she had already order at the counter to which the waitress shock her head and walked off, when we spoke to the waitress that bought the drinks over she went back and spoke to a man then they were all looking and talking making myself and my friend feel very uncomfortable. As a local person I will not be going back there and certainly won't recommend to anyone See More

We love watergate bay and recently booked our wedding here, however we have been disappointed this holiday that after a stunning walk you can't just pop in for a coffee as easy and relaxed as usual, w...e got bellowed at to shut the door as new door system which seems confusing and been turned away twice as the back area hasn't been opened but surprising when we come in December it's always open! So overall I feel
The friendly walk in relaxed atmosphere has been lost!

We were made very welcome even our very sandy Labrador ! The scones were amazing but as I’m allergic to strawberries I had to have marmalade. Nice but raspberry or black currant jam would have been appropriate See More

OMW I can't praise the food and the service enough. A-maz-zing I had the skate wing and my friend the Thai fish baked in a banana leaf. Couldn't fault either dish, both really tasty.

Been a few time and have never been disappointed! Good.. no very good food and friendly service. On Monday we drove to Watergate Bay just to have lunch there, were served by a young South African man,... who was very friendly, well mannered and knew the menu. Would definitely recommend, but do book, they always full! X See More

The food we had here was absolutely amazing, could have eaten it twice over. I have never had fish at a restaurant as good as I had here, daughter devoured her nachos and hubby ate HUGE mussels. The o...nly thing that let them down was the slow service, waited almost 30 mins for coffee and the bill didn't arrive so had to go to till ourselves after a 20 minute wait. But if you want great, really great food at good value for money it is the place to go. Oh, and also dog friendly which is an added bonus for many holiday makers. See More

I love this place and had visited before during a family beach visit a few years ago but loved the idea of watching the waves sunset on a meal out with my husband.

When I rung up I asked for a windo...w seat. They did say they couldn't guarantee this but I was hopefully. When we arrived I asked if we were able to get a window seat but after they looked they couldnt due to groups of 4 coming. I was slightly disappointed being sat right at the back and I am a short arse so couldn't see the sea at all. Wasn't how I had planned our anniversary meal but I was adamant I wasnt going to let it ruin the evening.

We ordered drinks and our meal. Starter was delicious. My husband is veggie and absolutely loved his. Nearing the end of of our starter a waitress came up and said that a party had not turned up and so had set out a window table for us. This was literally the nicest thing anyone has done on a meal out before. I was so happy. So we got to watch the waves and sunset for the majority of our visit which was fantastic.

Great staff, good menu.
We were quite cold this time. Once the middle door was shut (to the conservatory) it was better. �

Mussels and Chilli yummy. Whistable Bay IPA delicious. Staff charming and efficient when I’m sure they’d rather be at home (Boxing Day).Thank you. Should be noted our two soggy dogs (we did bring a to...wel) received similarly excellent service. See More

Great food, great staff, and now the cocktails are fab too, we always make sure we visit more than once and I always feel sad when it gets to our last visit knowing that we won't get to eat here 'til time we visit Cornwall. Thanks again for a great couple of visits. See More

Love this restaurant whether for a meal or a beer/ coffee overlooking the beach it's great. Dead laid back, sand in the floor, dogs, kids are all welcome and coexist happily. Had a good meal on our day in Cornwall, a few issues with the steak which was replaced then taken off the bill - not many places would do that - great service. Thanks we visit every time we are in Cornwall and that won't change. See More

Called in for a coffee ahead of a beach day. We called back to have lunch later. Waitress showed us to a table outside with one chair. We asked for another and we were told that wasn't possible as it ...would cause a seating plan issue inside. We asked for a table inside and we were told to speak to the seating planner at the bar entrance. The place wasn't busy but we were told it would be a 30 minute wait. We were asked to wait outside until they had one available!!!! What an absolute joke. Shameful service. See More

Absolutely love this place, the staff are friendly, the location amazing and the food delicious. My only criticism, as a (fairly) regular customer,( we are very fortunate to live local) the menu could... perhaps do with varying a little more frequently, a couple of fish specials is all well and good if you eat fish! However, this will not stop us returning again and again and again See More

Absolutely loved this place. You'd think the view sells it but to us it was the staff, they cheerily went out their way to squeeze us in when we didn't have a reservation, managing a table on the deck... with a spectacular sunset view. A real treat! 👌 See More

Frankly spoils taste of the bay.
We’ll be back to Watergate Bay (again) but won’t bother with the Beach Hut.

Great view, food is spot on for the money and they are happy to have dogs - the only downside is you have to book - if you turn up you will find the place half empty but they say they are fully booked... - most restaurants turn their tables several times but alas not this one! Chilli was particularly good 👍🏻 See More
