Description: Tucked away in a private, secluded cove with breath-taking views & food to match, Lusty Glaze Beach Bar & Restaurant is the epitome of relaxed and cosy dining. Recently crowned Britain’s Best Beach by The Sunday Times, this oasis on the North Cornish Coast is nestled just a short walk from Newquay’s centre & is a unique setting for lazy lunches, cosy coffees, & seaside suppers. Whatever the weather, the view from your table is stunning. Sit on the terrace & soak up the sunshine in the summer or cosy up by a roaring log burner on wild winter days. Serving the freshest seafood & locally-sourced Cornish produce, it’s beachside soulfood at its finest. Super tasty seasonal specials & classic steak hot rocks are firm favourites with locals and tourists alike. With legendary Headliner Sessions in summer & free weekly Woodburner Sessions throughout the year, there’s no better place to enjoy a local beer, delicious food & live music than this Cornish beach at sunset.

The location is without doubt one of the most stunning anywhere in the world. However, i do not eat meat and the food menu is not very exciting. There is a reliability on the location for your experience. The drinks and dessert prices seemed to be the same and at around £7 is very overpriced. Great that dogs are welcome and catered for probably as well as vegetarians

We visited the restaurant last night only to be very pleasantly surprised. Two of us ordered the mussels and two the special of ‘philly cheese steak’. Everything was faultless. From the great service (especially from the terrace barmaid) to the beautiful view onto the beach over drinks. Not to mention the mussels were the best we’ve ever had. We’ll definitely be returning, possibly tomorrow! Would highly recommend, but advise you get there early as they seem to get busy after 7:30 ish.
Thank you very much to lusty glaze beach restaurant for the memorable evening.

Went for dinner with my wife when on holiday nearby and the food was fantastic. The service was excellent and we were able to take our Cocker Spaniel along with us. As it was a Wednesday he was able to have a meal also for a donation to a local dogs charity.
The location is stunning, right on the beach and we were able to watch a stunning sunset. The only downside is the 133 steps to climb to the road above. Otherwise excellent.

Sad to read other people’s negative reviews such as the last person who walked out because they couldn’t get a table. Like anywhere decent these days one knows you have to book- no it’s not peak season but we are in the middle of a heatwave and the world and his wife flock to Cornwall.
We were made to feel VERY welcome, our dog was made a fuss of and provided with a water bowl as soon as we got to the table. We were offered a ‘doggie dinner’ too which our spaniel loved!
Our food was excellent- wonderful fresh fish and vegetables.
Personally we didn’t think it was overpriced, we eat out a lot, and you have to take in to account such a beautiful venue which seemed staffed very well. The waitress and bar manager certainly looked after us.
We will return very soon. Thank you for a great evening.

Always love an occasion at Lusty, I kinda agree with a previous lady about the lack of helpful direction to the bar & marquee, I wonder if they prefer you to walk the long way rather than thru the restaurant. Her dribble about her dog ( she’s lucky they accept them ) was totally irrevelant & the situ her own fault for not using her phone ! I enjoyed my surfer salad with steak, in the marquee area, the glass table was filthy though & the choice of wine, price & ultimate quality was woeful, a tumbler of G&T was £7.50 odd, with tap tonic which was flat. You can’t beat the location, I like the staff, super friendly, I’d watch the sunset every time here, be prepared to accept a certain lack of attention to detail & enjoy a ‘beer’ with your simple but tasty fare.
