Sams on the Beach


About On The Beach

This once RNLI lifeboat station was built 162 years ago, being restored sympathetically by Sam and Emma in 2009 with help from the local lifeboat men including Sam who was a volunteer for 10 years

Although we don’t do anything as dramatic as save lives anymore, we can certainly still rescue a few souls.

With it’s custom-built wood burning pizza oven churning out artisan slices of heaven, combined with the exceptional fresh fish that is landed by the “Emperor” our fishing day boat, a plethora of fresh delicacies arrive at the door each day. Shellfish arrives straight from St Austell Bay, lobsters, mussels and scallops are abundant.

Where else would you chose to be watching the sunset over the ocean sipping an Aperol whilst listening to Cafe del Mar. Think the Cotton Club done the Cornish Riviera way.

An open kitchen allows you to see all the action of head Chef Adam Nolan crafting away with our delivered fresh catch, whilst floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in during the cold winter months, experienced first hand to be fully appreciated.

So if any of this sounds appealing and let’s be honest it all does then follow the signs from Par. We are tucked away down a Cornish lane you’ll find Sam’s on The Beach, a great place to escape to – whatever the weather.

James Strawbridge wrote an article on Sam’s for Cornwall Life magazine:

Burgers and chips or pizza used to conjure up images of poor quality junk food and greasy-spoons, but over the years there has been a growing scene for fast-food lovers with a conscience. I count myself as a major fan of the genre – local produce and seasonal ingredients served up with style, fries and no frills – indulgent comfort food with a strong American influence. This is why I admire Mr Sam Sixton – for giving me cheeseburgers to die for, pizza that leaves you guilt-free and now pop-up menus with a host of great food to enjoy on the beach – all with a killer soundtrack…
