The Hidden Hut is a small rustic outdoor beach cafe located just outside Portscatho on the Roseland Peninsula, Cornwall. A friendly family place run by local couple Simon Stallard (chef) & Jemma Glass (host), and Jemma’s mother Maggie (the all important cake-baker). It’s a great place to eat and unwind in a relaxed, welcoming atmosphere – whether alone or with family and friends. You can even bring your dog if you wish. A useful pit stop for walkers and beach goers alike. In the summer months we open in the evenings to host pop-up feast nights, and over the years it has steadily been building a reputation as a unique and exciting new food venue on the Roseland peninsula.
What is The Hidden Hut? Essentially, it’s a wooden beach-side shed serving simple fresh food and drink from March through to October. We’re unlicensed but you’re welcome to bring your own wine and beers. Everything is to take away, but there’s an outdoor seating area to the front with uninterrupted views out to sea and across the bay to Portscatho should you wish to sit down and relax. The hut is conveniently situated on the South West Coastal Footpath and overlooks Porthcurnick Beach – one of the most beautiful and undisturbed coves on the South Cornish coast. It is about half a mile along the coastal path from the picturesque fishing village of Portscatho. You can’t drive up to it, you have to walk – but we think that makes it all the more special.
