Eating Out


Not only does the north Cornish coast have miles of golden sands and crystal blue waters, it’s also got loads going on in 2016. So we’ve put together a list of our top things to do in the area when on your holiday, so that you’re in the know, up to speed and in the loop.

The Sandbar >

Just across the road from Polzeath beach, the Sandbar café and takeaway is casual, friendly and convenient, useful for grabbing coffee and a seriously tasty sandwich on the run. If you’re in need of something more substantial, treat yourself to a thin, crispy pizza or beer battered fish and chips, not forgetting daily specials such as sweet potato, coconut and coriander soup. Choose from delicious, varied fillings for ciabattas, sandwiches, chunky wraps and freshly made salads. So handy after a day out on the beach, savour a smoothie or a fresh juice at the bar while you wait. With large screen TVs, table football and Wifi.
