#StrawsSuck – Say Hello to Paper Straws at The Beach House

The Beach House is proud to be one of the first places to eat in Worthing to ditch plastic straws

When you’re sipping on that well earned gin and tonic at the end of week at The Beach House, it probably hasn’t occurred to you that there’s a large number of people around you doing the same thing – and they’ve all got straws in their drinks. This is happening every day of the week, which means thousands and thousands of plastic straws are getting used – and the environmental impact adds up. Well, no longer, as far as we’re concerned – we’ve banished plastic straws in favour of a much more eco-friendly alternative!

Like other small pieces of plastic waste, straws can make their way into our rivers and oceans easily, causing havoc for marine life. A Gaurdian article recently reported that “Most plastic packaging items are used only once before being discarded, and globally only 14% of plastic packaging is collected for recycling. The remainder gets incinerated, landfilled or worse, with more than 30% leaking out into the environment. If nothing changes, there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050.” This is pretty scary, and we wanted to do our bit to reduce our use of single-use plastic items, which naturally led us to the replacement of our straws.

These new paper alternatives can go straight into the recycling, just as paper does in an office. They’re not boring bog standards ones either – they pretty cool, if we do say so ourselves? Both The Beach House and its sister bar The Corner House will be using these straws instead of plastic ones. We’re very pleased with them – come and give them a try! We’ve got a large gin selection, if you needed an excuse…

Some Sparkly New Additions to The Beach House Website

We’re excited to reveal brand new photos, a video and gift vouchers!

ew_9765-copy-1It’s been a little while since we saw the finishing touches on our website, so its been a lot of fun to give everything a bit of a refresh with some brand new photos, as well as an impressive new video! With the help of our marketing friends at Hit Refresh, and talented local photographer Ed Watts, we’ve got a selection of media that really shows off The Beach House at it’s best. You can now also buy gift vouchers for The Beach House and our sister bar, The Corner House – find out more here.

The photos were taken across two shoots, with the first focusing on the food. We wanted some of our most popular dishes to show off their best side, including fish and chips, steak frites, and of course, our famous burgers. Our sharing platters, pork pie, kids menu options, and the classic fish finger sandwich also got a look in, as well as some trendy interior shots, and plenty of attention paid to our extensive selection of drinks.

The second shoot focused more on our beautiful seafront deck, which on the night we chose, like any sunny summers evening on our terrace, was full of happy people enjoying themselves. We’re so pleased to have captured a slice of life at The Beach House, and have it immortalised not only in images, but in an exciting video too.

Hit Refresh’s videographer Gary was on hand on both shoots too, which has resulted in a very exciting video that we think sums up The Beach House perfectly

This media has definitely enhanced our website, and anyone who has ‘liked’ The Beach House on Facebook should expect to see the gorgeous pictures popping up on our posts from now on!

Half term is on its way, and our kids’s menu in Worthing is on hand to help

We know how hard it is to keep the whole family happy when you head out to eat, which can make half term a bit of a nightmare when it comes to meal times. This is what we try to combat with our kids’s menu in Worthing, which offers choice and tasty, homecooked food for kids, alongside our usual dishes and mouthwatering specials.

kid's menu in WorthingWe find that a big hit with little ones are our fish goujons, in a kid size portion and perfect for smaller tummies. They’re made freshly on-site with fish fresh from our local suppliers, and come with those all important fries; a proper fish and chip dinner by the sea for kids! There are also delicious chicken breast strips, and locally sourced sausages, both served with fries.

Of course, no trip to The Beach House would be complete without a burger, and kids don’t have to miss out on that; there’s a kids burger option too! Our famous burger in a child sized portion. There is a healthy option too, but just as tasty and filling; houmous dip with carrot sticks, cucumber, cherry tomatoes, and fresh toasted sourdough. Yum!

NHS Discount in Worthing

We offer NHS discount in Worthing to say a big thank-you to all that the hard working staff do

Thanks to our sunny position on the seafront, we often see NHS staff popping in for a bite to eat and a spell on our glorious deck during the week as a break from work, or a post-shift treat. They work tirelessly to provide excellent care, just as NHS staff do across all the various services, so we decided that to say a small thank-you for their massive contributions, we would offer NHS discount in Worthing here at The Beach House.

The discount is for 20% off food and drink Monday-Thursday, and is designed to make those all important pennies go further. Getting together for food is an important part of relaxing and winding down after a hard day’s work, so we hope that this offer will help make that more possible for NHS staff from all levels.

All staff need to do when they visit The Beach House between Monday and Thursday is present their staff card when they want to settle up! Call us on 01903 367313 to book at table.

The Beach House are Proud to Be a Ridgeview Wine Stockist in Sussex

The Beach House are proud to be a Ridgeview Wine Stockist in Sussex

We’ve always championed local producers at The Beach House, and that’s no different when it comes to our wine list. We’re proud to be a Ridgeview Wine stockist in Sussex, serving Bloomsbury to the wine lovers of Worthing.

Based in Ditchling, near Brighton, Ridgeview produces sparkling wines right here in Sussex, in their winery nestled at the foot of the South Downs. Their wines have gained world class reputation, and have won many national and international medals and trophies.  The team partially attribute their success to the full flavoured grapes that can be grown here in Sussex. Because our nights are chilly, English grapes have super-acidity, which bodes very well for quality sparkling wine!

pexels-photo-160123The Ridgeview wine we’ve particularly taken a liking to is the Bloomsbury, which is their signature blend. It’s golden in colour, with a ‘fine, persistent mousse’. Chardonnay dominates, and pinot adds depth, creating a balanced finish. It’s the perfect accompaniment to shellfish, which suits us down to the ground here by the sea! It’s great for celebrations too.

Find our full wine list here, and pop down soon and try a glass of this outstanding Sussex wine!

The Best Burgers in Worthing? The Beach House Of Course!

We’re famous for our burgers in Worthing

Everyone who loves burgers knows exactly where they had their best burger ever, and according to our reviews, a lot of people feel it was at The Beach House! We’ve worked hard to create a whopping seven handmade burger options to tickle the taste buds of Sussex burger lovers, and we think we may just have the best burgers in Worthing.

burgers in worthing We know that many food lovers are after the traditional beef burger, and we spoil them with a classic burger, a cheese burger, and tasty smoky bacon cheese options. However, there are lots of people who like something a bit different in their bun. For example, our chicken burger is a firm favourite, marinated and served with mozzarella and salad. Our spicy lamb burger also goes down well, and the Harissa mayonnaise gives it that something extra special. And how often do you see a fish burger? Our tuna loin burger breaks all the rules, and is ideal if you’re looking for something a little bit different.

Of course, it’s important to us that vegetarians experience that famous Beach House burger too, which is where our portobello mushroom and goats cheese burger comes into its own. Our burger buns can be made gluten free too – just ask one of our staff when you order.

To celebrate our famous Beach House burgers in Worthing, we dedicate every Wednesday evening to them! For just £10, you can grab one of our burgers and a pint or glass of house wine. Join us on a Wednesday and get a bargain, and potentially the best burger you’ve ever had – right here in Worthing. Check out our full menu here.

Draught Cyder at The Beach House

draught cyderNew draught cyder coming soon to The Beach House

We love our beer at The Beach House, but as summer approaches, we fancy a good glass of cyder too, and thanks to Aspall in Suffolk, we will soon have a brand new draught cyder available at The Beach House, perfect for the sunshine.

The draught cyder, made by Aspall in Suffolk, is fruity and thirst quenching, perfect for summer months. If you like a drink with your meal and fancy a cyder, this one is best served with curries, chicken, and bramley apple pie!

Aspall themselves were established in 1728 by Clement Chevallier, who planted orchards at Aspall Hall in Suffolk, in the tiny hamlet of Aspall, north of the small market town of Debenham. The Chevallier family still live and work among the orchards today, making them the 8th generation of the family to run Aspall. They add Champagne yeast to all of their fermentations to efficiently ferment sugar to alcohol, and ensure all the natural aroma and flavour of the apple shines through. This makes for a real traditional cider – and we have no doubt that it will quickly become one of our favourites at The Beach House.

Keep your eyes peeled for our new draught cyder – our sunny seafront deck will be ready and waiting too!

The Corner House

When we announced that we were to open a sister bar to The Beach House in the building formerly known as ‘The Stage’, we thought we couldn’t be anymore excited. However, watching the renovations take place, shaping it into the brand new Corner House, our pride and anticipation mounted further.

The journey began back in August, when we announced to our Beach House followers on Facebook that we were going to be opening a second bar and restaurant. The success of The Beach House meant we were inundated with excited responses, which spurred on the start of the extensive refurbishment that the building needed. Having been a large part of Worthing’s history, there was expectation for us to do pub justice. We went for a comfy cosy feel to the interior, and a stylish look from outside. We’re thrilled with the end result, and are so proud of the transformation, both inside and out.

Similarly to The Beach House, we wanted The Corner House to be a popular destination for food, and we decided on an emphasis for roasts dinners. Since the opening, our initial menu has been a hit, and have had rave reviews for the roasts in particular. The Beach House and The Corner House may be different in style and looks, but the same dedication to locally sourced quality food, and quality ales is at the heart of both bars.
