On our recent trip to Newquay we were looking to review some of the very best family friendly places to eat. First up was The Beach Hut, part of The Watergate Bay Hotel.
The Beach Hut is set overlooking Watergate Bay. It’s an incredibly beautiful setting. The day we went was gloriously sunny and the beach and restaurant were busy but still running like clockwork.
We had a prime spot at a table at the window.
The food was incredible:
Between us we had one child’s burger and chips, a Malay Fish Curry and Lamb Kofte with flatbreads and a rather hot Harissa sauce!
I’m not really a fan of seafood and I would never have chosen a fish curry but I’m very glad that my OH did as it was incredibly good. My lamb dish was tasty and filling and Izzy loved her burger.
Desserts were where it really stepped up a notch for me.
Andrew had an ice cream sundae and Izzy had a brownie with ice cream but mine was without a doubt the champion of all of the desserts. Three totally perfect, still warm doughnuts with a serving of lemon curd and mascarpone. Seriously my mouth is watering again thinking about how good they were. I would go there again for that dessert alone. YUM.
I was so sad that I didn’t save enough room for one of their famous extreme hot chocolates but the generously portioned meals totally finished me off and I struggled not to just sit in my chair and sleep afterwards.
We did more or less stay until the lunch rush was over and this photo shows a peaceful and pretty restaurant:
The staff are friendly and attentive and both girls were fussed over and Izzy was given crayons and paper on arrival. There is a really relaxed vibe and nobody blinked an eye at me breastfeeding at the table or at my rather stubborn toddler having a slight tantrum before food so it’s very family friendly.
We took a lot around The Watergate Bay Hotel after lunch and wow it’s beautiful. From the various restaurants and bars. The adults only areas paired with kids clubs for the little ones and the pool overlooking the beach it looks like a dream holiday destination. Would love to stay there in the future.
