The five best UK beach cafes and restaurants

Rockfish

Sandside Café, Sandsend

Right on the beach with views out to Whitby, this café's homemade cakes and pies feature on the menu alongside fresh crab sandwiches, and promises that even sandy children are welcome inside.

Rockfish, Devon

With four locations including Plymouth, Dartmouth, Torquay and newest addition, Brixham, Rockfish from celeb chef Mitch Tonks serves fantastic, sustainable seafood, bargain takeaway fish and chips, plus a kids' menu, which comes with a squid activity pack as well as tablecloths they can get busy doodling sandcastles on.

Porthgwidden Beach Café, St Ives

Right on the Blue Flag beach, with uninterrupted views over St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse, you can refuel all year round with cakes, or try Mediterranean and Asian seafood. There's a children's menu, too.

Hive Beach Café, Bridport

This seafood café looks out onto Lyme Bay and the Jurassic coast, with a big decked terrace that's perfect for pushchairs. Turn up early to get the fresh fish specials of the day, talk to the chefs who are on hand to answer any questions about the produce, and you can even borrow a bucket and spade to keep your little ones busy.

The Boathouse Café Bar, Isle of Gigha

The Hebrides aren't such a long way to go when there's unspoiled coastline and a popular beachfront restaurant (amid a small campsite) regarded as one of the UK's best. The 'Fresh In' board displays the day's catch, and some dishes are available as children's portions.
