The South Sands restaurant offers a panoramic beach view: the spectacular curved wall of pristine French windows presents a breathtaking centrepiece to the extraordinary restaurant, bar and terrace, showcasing the beautiful surroundings throughout the seasons. During the winter, guests can gaze out at the stormy seas while enjoying the comfort of the cosy restaurant and roaring lounge fire. In the summer the view is simply stunning, with the sunshine reflecting off the estuary in sparkling shades of blue and green. The terrace is a perfect suntrap, allowing guests to enjoy delicious food and beverages while taking in the unique setting and soaking up the sun.
The restaurant exudes a laid-back vibe, and children, dogs and flip flops are most certainly welcome. Various light bites, nibbles and more informal options are available at lunchtime, while in the evening the restaurant transforms into a more formal setting that is perfect for any occasion or celebration, including large functions and private bookings.
The menus are updated frequently, offering a variety of consistently high-quality, seasonal dishes. The executive chef, Allister Bishop, leads the kitchen in the design and preparation of sublime culinary delights, sourcing the best in local produce where possible and ensuring all dishes are prepared with the freshest ingredients.
