Unique location/ view. Would recommend booking a table in advance, as the restaurant only seats around 30. Small menu, but food is beautiful. Had one of the best steaks ever. Prices verging on the very expensive though.

Just had lunch here, a crab sandwich, a table spoon of crab on yesterday's dry bread had to ask for the mayo, which should of come with it, even had to ask for a napkin. For £9 a sandwich I expected a bit more. I won't be going back.

Whilst on holiday we visited and walked on this beach and came across this lovely bar in the rocks right on the beach. It was a lovely sunny day so we sat outside watching the surfers and enjoying a local beer. We decided as it was so pleasant to have some lunch here and we were not disappointed. I had... More

we headed in as it had started to rain, a toilet was needed and a coffee was in order! We ended up staying for lunch and the food was amazing! It was the best macaroni cheese i have ever had!

We visited here as a family, and it is certainly somewhere to recommend. It's situation right on the beach at Polzeath, North Cornwall means that you can visit even with your wetsuit on! Great welcome and service, and a good place to eat whatever the time of day.

What a great surprise. Didn't have high hopes for this meal but it was very good. Good selection of seafood and meat starters and mains presented well and professionally cooked. The laid back appearance of the restaurant and staff is deceptive as the 5 of us had a very enjoyable evening.

Another fabulous meal at the Surfside. We're discussing whether we prefer the way the used to do 'Surf and turf' is better than the way they now do it - the problem is they are both fantastic ... but different. So we can't decide. Therefore we'll just have to go back and have yet another (and another) meal to decide.... More

We had lunch here at a table by the window (probably a must unless you are outside). Small menu but interesting and we ate well. We were not hurried out and made the most of the stunning view.

if you looking for and evening meal in Polzeath its either Surfside, Deck Steppers or the Waterfront. Deck Steppers and The Waterfront are both pretty commercial, OK but you know what you getting into before you get there - Surfside has bit of soul. The view (particularly in the evening as the sun sets) is stunning but you see the... More
