After my short August-blog-hibernation, I’m back with my first of two food blogs about South Devon and they’re not to be missed.

The Beachhouse is a shabby-chic, cosy and inviting restaurant located in South Milton in Devon. The converted beachhouse may look like nothing more than a shack from afar, but step inside on a chilly evening or sit outside on a sunny Summer afternoon and you’ll be knocked off your wooden bench by the food served here.

It’s a guaranteed thing that there will always be fresh, delicious seafood on offer here. A classic Beachhouse dish (which has been there the last three years I have visited), is garlic & chilli king prawns – just make sure you ask for a spoon to mop up the delicious and super spicy sauce.

Seafood haters don’t fret, the Beachhouse offers an eclectic menu that changes fairly often and there are always plenty of other options available. I had beautiful arancini balls for my main which reminded me slightly of the stuffing balls I have at Christmas, but that’s never a bad thing. Wherever you sit in the Beachhouse for dinner you will be able to see the sun setting over the ocean, which always adds some romanticism to the venue.

The Beachhouse have a slightly unique dining experience, especially for an area usually frequented by families or couples. The wooden tables that fill the dining area seat around six people comfortably and eight at a push, so unless you come here in a group of five or more you will probably end up sharing your table with others and end up talking. This has always been great fun for me as we have met some lovely people in the Beachhouse. For all of you dog owners out there, dogs are warmly welcomed.

So in the unlikely event that you haven’t heard of The Beachhouse and you either live in Devon or you’re going to South Devon next Summer, then this is the place to visit for a memorable dining experience.
