Fabulous Seafood, Fabulous Wines, Fabulous Views

When you first arrive at The Beach Hut we hope you will enjoy the rugged beach and all it’s natural beauty. We are rustic in style and it suits our surroundings. We are open to the elements weather wise. A very high tide we will have the waves crashing over the sea wall. A particularly strong SW wind will send your salad garnish flying. A sudden sea mist will bring in a thick fog very quickly. Some days you will see our brave RNLI teams or Coastguard helicopter rescuing those in trouble. Every day is different. And at 5.15pm Britney Ferry will go past. Life by the sea always brings daily adventures!

We specialise in offering seafood platters and vegi treats over lunchtime. We serve lunch 12 till 3pm. Our food is prepared to order and our menu is small and succinct to keep our food fresh. We don’t fry. We don’t do burgers. Or bacon sandwiches. Nope we just do what we do best. Fresh seafood platters. We play with seasonings and marinades. We serve fresh local crab and lobster when we can get it and when the brave fishermen can get out. We use local produce wherever possible and local suppliers. We believe in supporting local.

We offer fresh local seafood of Crab and Lobster alongside other favourites such as Scottish smoked salmon, Giant Mediterranean Crevetes, shell on Prawns, Tiger Prawn mayo. Lots of fresh salads. Herbs. Marinades. All served with fresh crusty rolls. We specialise in seafood platters to eat in or pre order to take away. (We can offer delivery after cafe hours if pre booked and pre paid. Please call or text on 07832127737 to order May to September). We do run warm dishes on chilly days such as garlic crevettes or our homemade crab ramekin. We often have a French Lobster Bisque on the menu. Crab sandwiches we cannot serve these days as there is just not enough crab to go round. But our open smoked salmon is equally lovely!

Alongside our seafood we offering we will always have a small range of vegi treats and a vegan option. Roasted vegetables, hummus and crumbled falafals. Or fresh local asparagus and minted cucumber ribbons. Pan fried Hallumi in sweet chilli. There is always something fresh and light on.

Our menu is small and succinct. It will change based on market availability and prices. So we tend to run a blackboard menu to keep things fresh.

For the little Beach Hutters we offer a picnic box style lunch with a sandwich, crisps, colouring book, bag of sweets and a carton of drink.

Coming just for a tea or coffee. Not a problem we stock Twinnings Tea and Lavazza coffee from a rather whizzy Barista coffee machine. On busy lunchtimes we do have to prioritise our seating for those having lunch. But we are more than happy to offer our drinks as a takeaway.

We have a Tikki style bar up on an upper terrace where you will place your order and collect your drinks. You will be given a buzzer thingy that will tell you when your food is ready. Our food will come out from a separate area and we will ask you to pick up your food.

We stock a lovely range of Isle of Wight Ice Creams, New Forest Ice Creams, Walls Ice creams and for 2022 we have Rex's Doggy Ice cream for our four legged chums!

We take all cards except AMEX. No cheques. We ask all payment be made by card. We don’t carry cash on the premises due to security.

We have a fabulous Tikki style bar with views over the beach, cliffs and Culver. We offer Isle of Wight Ales and Local Mermaid Gin. We offer Isle of Wight Cocktail Co. Cocktails. All alongside good wines such as AIX Rose and Whispering Angel. Beers wise we run with bottles of Peroni, Browdog and Local Ales. We offer mocktails and a small range of non alcho drinks.

It can’t be avoided we all know food and drink is going up. We will do our best to offer good value. We will learn to box a bit clever this year, but some things will go up. We won’t be offering crab sandwiches this season due to a lack of crab and the price it is coming in at.  

Summer delivery menu now running.
