Lusty Glaze Beach Bar & Restaurant   

Nestled in a secluded cove, just a short walk from the centre of Newquay and down the infamous 133 steps, the Bar & Restaurant at Lusty Glaze Beach is the perfect spot for lazy lunches, cosy coffees, and seaside suppers. As a privately owned beach, our unique setting can even be hired exclusively if you’d like to keep our incredible views all to yourself!

Whatever the weather, the view from your table is breath-taking. Sit on the terrace and soak up the sunshine with a cold drink in the summer, or on wild winter days, cosy up by one of two roaring log burners with one of our famous hot chocolates.

We can cater for all dietary requirements if you make us aware of them before visiting.

Well behaved dogs (and owners!) are welcome in our bar and restaurant all year round.

We very much look forward to seeing you at the beach. If you have any questions about your visit, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team on 01637 872444.
