About Us

Overlooking North Devon’s famous Saunton beach, Beachside Grill offers a unique blend of quality sourced ingredients, grilled to perfection and served in a chilled indoor/outdoor space.

Our menu has tempting dishes suitable for vegans, vegetarians, coeliacs and we’re happy to cater for most dietary requirements. We’re open for meals or simply a coffee or beer by the beach.

Our balcony is open to dogs, so you can enjoy a well-earned break after you’ve walked them on North Devon’s only all-year dog-friendly beach.

PLEASE NOTE: Dogs aren’t permitted inside and balcony tables cannot be reserved in advance.

How We Grill It

Our approach is simple, source the best quality ingredients, don’t fuss with them and cook in the old school way.

All our food is grilled over open flames on our state-of-the-art Synergy Grill for an authentic flavour.

Our commitment to provenance and traceability where possible is aided by our suppliers who help us support this passion and vision from their paddock to our plates.

At Beachside Grill we strive to be as sustainable and environmentally friendly as possible. Our menus are printed locally on FSC paper from sustainable sources using vegetable based inks and preferably, we urge our customers to use the QR code provided at the table to view the menu online. Our commitment to being plastic free is highlighted by using non-plastic straws and using bottled condiments.


We can’t wait to host big parties, weddings and conferences again soon, and we welcome enquiries for future events. However, at time of publishing during the coronavirus pandemic, we can only look to host events as per the government guidelines for social gatherings, which are currently set at 15 people for weddings.

For when we can celebrate properly again; Beachside Grill is a superb location for a wedding party or chilled seaside gathering. Celebrate your special day – Beachside.

Our contemporary venue offers the best of both indoor and outdoor entertainment areas with the soft sandy stretch of beach literally a stone’s throw away – perfect for those all-important photographs.

The best possible sourced ingredients set the standard for the fresh and creative menus designed specifically for you by our kitchen.

Party the night away with a spectacular beach sunset as your backdrop and you’ll definitely wake up with a little sand between your toes.

With Braunton Burrows, the colourful beach huts, dramatic cliffs of Saunton and long rolling surf the views are spectacular at all times of the day. Our venue has that chilled out beach vibe, yet still maintains impeccable standards of service and a selection of fabulous food choice.

We welcome enquiries for future venue hire for weddings between October and June. Prices start from £7500  – for more information, email us on [email protected]

Large Parties

We can’t wait to host larger parties again, and we welcome enquiries for the future. However, at time of publishing during the coronavirus pandemic, we can only look to host events as per the government guidelines for social gatherings.

When restrictions allow, you can just book a larger table or why not hire the entire venue? Celebrate your family occasion in style. We make it easy for you, menus are planned based on your numbers and requirements.
