Hot on the heels of the multi-award winning building at East Beach, fantastic fish & chips is served in the West Beach Cafe designed by Asif Khan. Khan is a brilliant graduate of London’s world renowned avant-garde architectural school, The Architectural Association alumni which includes Zaha Hadid and Richard Rogers. His most recently acclaimed design is The Beat Box Pavilion for Coca Cola at the London 2012 Olympic Stadium.
The cafe is at the mouth of the River Arun and right on West Beach, Littlehampton - a beautiful, unspoilt beach and a designated area of Special Scientific Interest.
West Beach Cafe offers eat-in or take-away fish & chips, home-made fishcakes and local ice cream plus one of the best views on the South Coast. Created by the team at East Beach Cafe the menu includes: fish & chips, home-made fishcakes, fried smelts, scampi, home made pea puree, toasted sandwiches, toasted fruit bread, local farmhouse cakes, locally roasted coffee & local ice cream. The cafe is also fully licensed.
All fish is from sustainable sources.
Even the cafe itself has been made locally – from the furniture to the lighting, the signage, the steelwork and the window frames. Each item has been hand made by local craftsmen, many based in Littlehampton.
