When you need to escape the Capital and head to the coast, be sure to visit one of our favourite spots for a dreamy beachside dining experience…
Home At Penarth
After winning and hanging on to one of Wales’ few Michelin stars at the Crown at Whitebrook, local-boy-made-good James Sommerin has ventured to the seafront to set up his eponymous restaurant with rooms. Located where Cardiff meets the coast, it serves sensational tasting menus and a view of the Severn Estuary.
Ultimate beachside dining location The Fox’s Revenge in Newquay has transformed its garden with an 80 person tipi to accommodate diners whatever the weather. Executive Chef Ben Ambridge has created a dedicated BBQ menu for the summer, including his twist on roast dinner, cooked over fire. Much of the meat on the menu has been slow cooked in the pub’s smoker, dishes include Pulled Beef Chuck flatbread with BBQ Korean Sauce.
The Beach At Bude
Some of the best views in Cornwall are to be had from this smart eaterie, set high above beautiful Summerleaze beach. There’s a buzzy bar and a serious restaurant with an ambitious menu – think high class, globally influenced dishes with lots of local ingredients including Cornish cod and crab. This is a stylish spot for a treat – the puddings ane cocktails are clever too.
Isle of wight
The Hut at Colwell Bay offers breathtaking views across the estuary, a laidback Mediterranean vibe and impeccable service from ever-smiling staff. Guests can enjoy glasses of the palest rose and dishes such as succulent Garlic Butter Grilled Lobster and Monkfish Tacos. The restaurant is also launching its very own ferryboat service between Lymington and the Isle of Wight.
