Lula, Hayle

East-coast USA style seafood beach-side shack on Hayle's North Quay that serves a serious foodie punch and makes a great location for a drink with a view.

Read our review of Lula, Hayle

You’ll find laid back beach-side seafood shack Lula on Hayle’s North Quay. Lula opened in 2020 after the first lockdown and the team have been developing the building ever since, creating more inside seating and expanding the bar.

Lula was at the forefront of the North Quay development which is still going on; the quayside runs along the side of Hayle Bar – that’s the little inlet off the side of the wider Saint Ives Bay – on the way to Hayle Towans. Take a seat, inside or out, and you’ll have views across the water to Lelant.

Serving up an east coast of USA crab shack meets southern Creole/Cajun menu, Lula is the second eatery from Sam Sheffield-Dunstan, acting as the more casual little sister to Amelie’s in Porthleven. No bookings required for breakfast, lunch or even the evening sundowners – it is all super laid back.

The produce is all as local as possible; the lobsters and crayfish are straight off the boats on the quayside (you can practically watch your meal being caught), the crabs are Cornish, the mussels from the west country and it is all washed down with local drinks – including cocktails made from the rum and gin that Lula created in collaboration with the Rosemullion Distillery.

Watch out for the just slightly more formal Lula style Sunday sharing lunches coming up later in the autumn (which you will be able to book) as well as Christmas parties for anywhere from two at a table right up to private hire for 40. Although the fire pit feasts and summer music sessions have finished for the summer, there is a legendary sounding NYE party planned…
