Savour the moment

Sophistication and relaxation effortlessly combine over sweeping sea views and perfectly chilled wine.  

Relish your coffee on the terrace as the day ahead rises with the glowing morning sun. Drift onto the beach, a mere few steps from the comfort of our terrace.

When the days get shorter and the sea breeze brisk, seek comfort by our open fire and witness dramatic waves crashing on the estuary while you nestle down with a luxury hot chocolate or comforting glass of red wine. Put your feet up, settle in and unwind, wholly refreshed.

Making cocktails
Beach Bar

Early morning swims, dog walks, lounging on the beach, it’s all thirsty work. Refresh, recharge and take the time to soak in South Sands’ relaxed beach bar.

Cosy up inside with a best-seller accompanied by a mocktail or sip Espresso Martinis as you challenge your loved one to a board game. Even on chillier days you can storm watch from the bar and witness our dramatic landscape come to life.

Whatever the occasion, resident or non-resident, our bar team are on hand to craft beverages throughout the day.

Drinks on the Terrace

Allow time and conversations to meander as you take another sip, pour another glass or order another round. Feel the unrushed ease of a morning’s coffee on the sunrise terrace, melt into an afternoon of refreshing beverages, through to a Summer’s evening accompanied by sea views and the perfectly chilled rose.

For dynamic days, enjoy the freedom of great drinks on the go when ordered from our terrace bar hatch. To help reduce single waste, all our takeaway drinks come in our personalised reusable cups and require a refundable deposit.

At South Sands, wine is more than a list on our menu. It’s a moment, the moment you take the first sip of your chilled rose on the terrace during the blissful summer months. It’s finding that perfect pairing that pulls together your dining experience. It’s knowing that while the waves crash outside and the evening draws in, warmth and relaxation awaits inside, accompanied by our classic wines from the Loire, Burgundy, Rhone Valley and Bordeaux.

As an independent hotel, our wines are sourced from independent and family-owned suppliers including wines from Ellis Wines, established in 1822. We’re also delighted to promote truly exceptional sparkling wines from the Gusbourne Estate, some of which, in our opinion, are finer that most comparable champagnes.
