Fish & chips and curries by the beach at our laid-back restaurant and takeaway

Overlooking one of the best surfing beaches in the UK, our relaxed family friendly restaurant and takeaway brings together the freshest local seafood and flavours inspired by Rick’s travels around India and the Far East. We’re renowned for our fish and chips served with our own tartare or Goan curry sauce, as well as curries and south-east Asian gems like nasi goreng and pad Thai. Perfect post beach or surf fayre to enjoy with a view.

The casual style of the restaurant means we don’t take bookings, but when it’s busy we use a virtual queuing system. Simply scan the displayed QR code and enjoy the beach while we get your table ready.

Pre-order your takeaway via the Rick Stein app. Download on the App Store or Google Play.
