Britannia @ The Beach


Home of fantastically fresh local seafood – affectionately known as ‘The Shack’.

Here at The Shack we offer a combination of a traditional fishmonger, village stores and a unique rustic café.

Situated in the old fishing village of Beesands between Torcross and historic Hallsands with superb views across Start Bay.

The family has owned the building for nearly 40 years, using it inconnection 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!!
