If the weather is good can’t think of a better way to enjoy a bacon and scallop roll. Large juicy scallops and crisp bacon served overlooking the fishing boats on Hythe Bay.

Lovely place to have lunch - but always CLOSED. How can a place like this be closed on a sunday when there are so many people looking for a place to have lunch on the beach.

We stock up the freezer from here most months with really fresh fish of all varieties. Not quite the selection available in Portugal, but for an English wet fish supplier they sometimes have unusual types of fish available. Their lobsters are really good, as are their crabs and squid. A bit off the beaten track but well worth the journey to Fishermans Beach, were you can also enjoy their very fresh 'fish'n'chips' as you sit on the beach and gaze out to sea!

Used to love this place...but it seems to have gone downhill. Our last two visits have been very disappointing. Their menu has changed from having interesting fish dishes to bacon and sausage rolls. I chose plaice goujons, they were overcooked and the fish still had the skin on which was slimey and some had more skin in than fish! The lettuce garnish was off, some of the leaves brown and slimey, yuk! We won't be returning.

We have been going here on and off since they started this on the beach cafe. Due to the attractive typical English beach location,it’s very popular and it’s often difficult to get a spare bench. On hot sunny days, like yesterday, all available sun umbrellas aren’t always out,so you might need to chase them up on this.
Originally,there was a good choice of seafood and sometimes you could buy fish and they would cook it for you.
Despite their claims to the contrary, the menu choices are boring ,restricted and fish options seem limited to fish and chips or scallops and a bit of bacon in a roll. All very disappointing now , higher prices and, apparently, under new management. Sadly, we will not be going again. What a pity
