Britannia @ The Beach
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, takeaway, village stores and a unique rustic BYO café/restaurant (corkage applies).
Britannia @ The Beach evolved from an idea by local fishing family Nick and Anita Hutchings, as a way of completing the cycle from catching seafood, to retailing it and now also offering it as part of a varied and exciting menu at the beach shack. The family owned the original building for nearly 40 years, using it in connection with their fishing business, firstly as the bait store and then from the mid ‘90’s as the operating centre for their business Britannia Shellfish Ltd.
After 11 years this business had outgrown these premises and moved to a purpose built unit on the edge of the village. It is still run by the Hutchings’ family now.
With its’ historic fishing connections and rustic appeal’ The Shack’ has evolved over the years into a much loved local landmark, being directly on the shingle beach at Beesands, between Torcross and historic Hallsands with the National Trust coast path running right past the door, with the added bonus of free parking!!
After surviving the winter storms of 2014 and again taking a battering from storm Emma in 2018 a decision was made to rebuild ‘The Shack’ to provide a more substantial building that will last for many years to come!
We are now open all year round, just taking a short break in January.
We are members of Food and Drink Devon and we endeavour to source as much of our produce as possible from local suppliers, if not within the South Hams within Devon.
This family run business offers a warm welcome to all, including well-behaved dogs, and prides itself on offering quality, extreme freshness and value for money.
Just call in, or give us a ring to get a gift card - you can choose to load one up with any amount you want.
Available for collection from the restaurant or we can post it out with a Love from Beesands card for an additional £2.50
Also available for purchase at the Shack
