Within a frisbee throw of Sandsend's mile long beach in Yorkshire's most plausible boutique resort, Bridge Cottage Cafe, a Mulgrave Estate property, is a pretty stone cottage set back from the road.
Eat in the garden among drifts of lavender or indoors where Scandinavian minimalist meets Scottish hunting lodge: antlers, tartan and Verner Panton chairs. Food is served daytime Tue/Wed/Sun 10am-5pm with sandwiches and fab. cakes. Then Thurs-Sun 10am-9pm the Bridge Cafe morphs into a proper restaurant raising its game with fabulous local fish: potted shrimps, battered hake, sea trout with hollandaise. And it's not just fish, there's poached pork with summer vegetables or ricotta gnocchi with sage butter. At pudding, lemon posset and chocolate mousse confirm the Bridge Cafe as a grown up restaurant iunder chef/owner Alex Perkins. Sandsend just got trendier again.
