Welcome to Britannia @ The Beach

Welcome to Britannia @ The Beach home of fantastically fresh local seafood – affectionately known as ‘The Shack’. Here at The Shack we offer a combination of a traditional fishmonger, village stores and a unique rustic café.

Situated in the old fishing village of Beesands between Torcross and historic Hallsands with superb views across Start Bay.
