This is a rock that I pass now and again and I would love to know how it gained what look like large 'bites' out of it.

Where is it? It could be frost damage.
The water in the sandstone sinks to the bottom of the rock, the frost freezes the water making it expand - the rock splits abit and the cycle continues a few times - eventualy during a thaw the rock finds part of its self is not really attachd any more and a bit drops out.

Was going to say about ingress of water which freezes and expands during the winter, but it has already been covered very well by 'JackAllTog' and 'banehawi'

The rock is in a park very close to a beach and at the bottom of a small rock face.

Not sure that this is the answer to your query, but not far from me there is a ridge on the Highland Boundary fault made up of 'Puddingstone'........ie. round pebbles and stones (rounded by originally lying in a river bed) embedded in red sandstone. With surface erosion from rain and frost, the round stones come away and leave rounded cavities, not at all unlike what I can see here
