Fish & Chip Takeaway

Our venture garnered accolades in its first year of opening, actually making it into the Top 5 Fish & Chip Shops in the West Country. Situated below the restaurant, one can take advantage of our seating area which is nestled right on the beach. 

Townside Takeaway

This takeaway, which is situated at the other end of the beach to our Café/Restaurant, has been set up with families in mind.  We have created a menu of traditional snacks typical for the beach; including Cornish pasties, freshly prepared sandwiches, salads and baguettes which can be made to order, chips, hamburgers, hot dogs, hot and cold drinks. We also appreciate that we have to be price competitive and we are confident we offer value for money as well as convenience.

Beach Bar

In conjunction with the Townside Takeaway , our Beach Bar offers value for money with a selection of leading brand spirits, premium beers, local ales and ciders, and jugs of pimms and sangria.  The drinks can be enjoyed on our mediterraen style sun decked terrace with is ideally positioned on our inimitable sand.
