Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2019/20 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

Their larger Porty prom premises has been a local favourite for years, and now The Beach House have added a takeaway on the nearby high street. The Beach House Bakery is a neat distillation of all its sister café is known and loved for; friendly service that fosters a neighbourhood atmosphere, simple yet charmingly effective seaside décor and crowd-pleasing dishes made fresh with locally sourced ingredients. The bakery operates without a menu, instead creating changing daily choices that prioritise seasonal flavours. This flexibility is a hit with customers, especially those with specific dietary requirements. Although no two days are the same in the kitchen there are a few staples that tend to stay put on the chalkboard, such as heartily thick soups and their famous sourdough breads. Keep an eye out for their pop-up supper club too – a monthly three-course dinner prepared by the Bakery staff.
