Due to staff shortages we have had to curtail our normal excellent full breakfast menu and restrict it to breakfast baps only.   Our apologies but with scarce resource we can only keep our excellent standards by reducing our offer.

We look forward to welcoming you to the beach - or why not have a delicious coconut prawn tacos with a chilled glass of white or rose wine.   We are open everyday.  Our new indoor Sweet Spot (currently closed due to staff shortages) offers an array of sweet treats including our hand made carrot cake, chocolate cake and Victoria sponge.  

We are open 10am to 6pm every day serving fresh bean coffees, tasty wraps, bacon baps, fish n chips and delicious grass fed Devon beef burgers.   In August we will be closing at 6pm - 5pm if the day is wet.

Card payments only please.   The take away offers local seafood, Devon grass fed burgers, tacos, savoury jackfruit (vegan) and much more.   Our Fish n Chips (tempura battered sole fillets) has been a huge hit.  

All our plates and cups are plastic free, single use & home compostable.   

As Blackpool Sands is a Blue Flag beach no dogs are allowed on the beach or in the car park until early November.
