History

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 has owned the building for nearly 40 years, using it inconnection 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 now evolved 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!!

We are proud members of Food And Drink Devon and endeavor 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.
