What better way to spend a lunchtime than eating fabulous seafood and drinking chilled rose watching the waves crash on the shore. Who wouldn’t like to wander along the beach and fall upon this little hut, serving fresh seafood. IW crab and lobster. Giant crevettes. Garlic prawns. And simple IW crab sandwiches served on brown. All washed down with a glass of something chilled. It’s all about seafood here.
Rustic in it’s style, unpretentious, and a breath of fresh air against the posh types who are popping up. This little hut is just that. A small hut serving great food. A limited menu. Open air seating. And only open on dry days, this is the sort of place you’ll enjoy either wrapped in a blanket sheltering from the NE winds or on basking sunny days, sheltered under a big sun umbrella.
With a kitchen smaller than most kitchens at home The Beach Hut team create and serve fabulous food and wine. In their 6th year, Jon and Emma Guy own and run the cafe with a great team. Championing local produce and seafood they will welcome you, the kids and dogs on sunny days from April till October. Early and late season 11am – 5m, July and August 10am – 8pm. Serving food from 12.
Featured in many national magazines and national press, and visited by some rather well known faces, this little gem is off the beaten track.
Free parking is available in an unmade car park, then reached down a set of steep steps and the ‘facilities’ come in the shape of a camping loo! But don’t let that put you off, this little spot on a sunny day will give you the best the Island has on offer. Think Enid Blyton with great food!
Forelands beach is reached by driving along Bembridge harbour, through the village and follow the signs to Forelands. The Beach Hut is rustic, open air and unique. Don’t dress up. Just come as you are and enjoy fantastic fresh seafood and salads right on the beach.
