Britannia @ The Beach Beesands - Home of fantastically fresh local seafood – affectionately known as ‘The Shack’ on Beesands Beach.
Britannia @ The Beach home of fantastically fresh local seafood – affectionately known as ‘The Shack’.
Here at ‘The Shack’ we offer a combination of a retail fishmonger, takeaway, and a unique rustic café/restaurant with an alcohol licence.
Situated in the old fishing village of Beesands between Torcross and historic Hallsands with superb views across Start Bay.
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 in connection 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!!

Our fresh fish counter offers an ever changing selection of freshly caught local fish and shellfish much of it supplied by our own boats.
Line – caught bass, mackerel and pollack are in abundance during the summer months and if you time it right you might just see our boats landing the ‘fish special of the day’ on the beach directly in front of the shack. You can’t get much fresher than that!!
