Enjoy regular nights of live music at The Beach House
If you’re familiar with life at The Beach House, you’ll know about Beach House Music Club, taking place on the first Thursday of every month featuring fantastic live tunes played by Tim Keegan and his musician friends in our cosy bar.
Added to that on the last Thursday of every month, Tom Walker joins us for a monthly live music set. We first got to know Tom from playing at our Sunday Sessions in the Tap House, Shoreham, and could see how well he would be received in Worthing too and we weren’t wrong!
Thursday is also our Steak Night, meaning you can get steak frites and a beer or glass of house wine for just £14. Double win!
But if acoustic music isn’t your thing and you are up for some funk, soul and disco, head down to The Beach House on the second Friday of each month when DJs Inappropriate Handclap rock the Beach House with their lively tunes.
If you are looking for the perfect selection of cocktails in Worthing for your next night out… look no further! The Beach House has a fantastic signature cocktail menu, plus our staff are always creating and mixing new cocktails to try.
Just in the last few weeks we have seen a huge array of special cocktails adorn the boards, all of which have gone down a treat. Whether gin or vodka cocktails are your thing, or you have a tendency for a bit of rum, we have something for everyone.
Pop along to try a new cocktail this weekend, you won’t be disappointed!
Hot on the heels of our staff trip to Bitburger in Germany, our next trip was a little closer to home in Sussex, but no less fascinating.
Matt took a group of team members from the Beach House, Corner House and Tap House into the heart of the South Downs to visit the vineyard and winery of Ridgeview, supplier of our wonderful Ridgeview Bloomsbury English fizz.
The team were able to see the vineyards, which started life back in 1995, in all their glory. Planted in the foothills of the South Downs, the soil is a perfect combination of chalk and clay to sustain the classic grape varieties grown there including Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The vines benefit from high levels of natural acidity which is exactly what is needed to produce Ridgeview’s incredible sparkling wine.
The winery was also incredible to see, a mix of traditional methods with modern, specialist machinery to enhance the process of wine-making without taking over. The team at Ridgeview still handpick their grapes and use very gentle pressing techniques to ensure the highest standards of wine production. Their bespoke, underground wine cellar is unique in England and also means that the wine produced can be stored perfectly.
All of this hard work and effort is clear when tasting Ridgeview’s wines and its not difficult to understand why it is frequently served not only in No 10 Downing Street but also Buckingham Palace. What better way to show off England’s finest produce. 20 years after the first vines were planted, Ridgeview now produce more than a quarter of a million bottles which are sold across the World and of course, most importantly, supplied to us in Worthing and Shoreham!
Have you tried Ridgeview’s Bloomsbury English Fizz yet? Available at all our establishments by the bottle or by the glass.
Some of our key team from the Beach House, Corner House and Tap House were recently invited to take a tour of the Bitburger Brewery in Germany!
6 of our lucky team took the 400 mile trip to Bitburg, a small town in the South West of Germany not far from the border of Luxembourg. Steeped in tradition, the Bitburger brewery was founded back in 1817, by Johann Peter Wallenborn. By 1883 they were brewing the first of their Pilsner style beers and soon exporting to their nearest neighbour, Luxembourg. The brewery grew in strength until it was destroyed in 1944 towards the end of the war. But Bitburg was made of strong stuff and by 1949 they were back to full production. Many milestones came and went, but it was in 1964 when their recognisable goblet was first designed and introduced.
By the end of the 80s and early 90s Bitburger had developed into the one of the most important beer brands in Germany, available in more than 30 countries. Celebrating its 200’th birthday in 2017 it is still one of the most important German breweries still in private ownership and remains to this day the most poured draft beer in German bars.
Our team had a wonderful glimpse into the Bitburger Brewery, with a very warm welcome from the dedicated and passionate brewers who gave great insights into the process of making their wonderful premium Pils.
We are very pleased to have welcomed Anna’s Drawing Room to the Beach House to display her work and refresh our walls!
Anna a, largely self-taught, local artist based in Worthing launched her own art business, Anna’s Drawing Room just a few years ago but with such an incredible style and observation of plants and landscapes her art has already brightened many homes.
Anna cites her main influences as Finnish textile design, Anna is Finnish herself, and a particular a David Hockney exhibition which brought about her first series of prints and cards with a simple, strong, linear style. More recently Anna’s work has featured trees, forests and leafy plants, playing with layered textures and she has work underway that offers moody landscapes, looming trees and rolling clouds but trees still a large focus.
We are very proud to be able to display Anna’s work on the walls of the Beach House, not only do they bring interest and drama to our space, but they are available to purchase (details are provided on cards beside each work).

The Beach House has now been open for more than 4 years and in that time we have certainly become known for being a truly family friendly seafront bar in Worthing.
Situated across the road from Worthing beach, with all the walking and fun it has to offer and very close to our wonderful art deco pier and amusements, we are in prime position to be the perfect stopping point for a relaxed family lunch. Offering a tasty selection of dishes, many of which can be enjoyed by children, plus their own kids menu, we can cater for all ages. What’s more you don’t even have to leave the dog at home, so many of our customers visit us after a delightful dog walk along the beach or prom. We always make families feel welcome here, with everything you need to make it a chilled stop.
Right next door we are also lucky to have the Dome Cinema, a truly traditional cinema with a great selection of films for all the family, and a cinema treat can be extended by popping in to us before or after your show.
Across the year, and most recently during the school holidays we have welcomed many families either inside or on our seafront deck in warmer weather, but it doesn’t stop The Beach House from feeling grown up to those visiting without children. We have found a very happy balance and has made our family friendly seafront bar a real asset to Worthing which is something we are really proud of. If you haven’t already visited, why not pop in when you are next in town and try for yourselves.
“With this warm weather it’s been a lovely place to go. Sitting out in the sun with friends and family, enjoying the view with a yummy cocktail and fab food! It’s a really nice place for summer!”

“We booked a table as we went on a Saturday lunch time and at the same time checked to see if they could cater for gluten free choices. We also had 2 dogs with us and they were more than accommodating, they are welcome inside the restaurant. We all had burgers and they were lovely. All in all it was a lovely family catch-up meal that wasn’t rushed as the staff left us to chat away.”

We never rest on our laurels at The Beach House and we are pleased to announce a short period of closure in January so we can make a few updates to our beachfront bar.
From 7th January until 17th January we will be closed with a view to improve our outdoor decking area including heated umbrellas and lights to make it more comfortable all year round. Our furniture will be updated and bi-folding doors will be installed. We will also take the time for a new lick of paint here and there while we are closed.
Once we have re-opened we will have all your favourites return including our Street of The Week offer, where residents of a different street each week can enjoy 15% off (weekdays only), our Burger Deal each and every Wednesday, with a House Burger & Chips plus pint or glass of wine is just £11 (add £2 for other burgers) and Steak Frites with a drink are just £13 on Thursdays.
Don’t forget, Tuesday nights will continue to host our Quiz Night with Gareth raising money for Superstar Arts. The quiz night is great fun and features additional rounds of card bingo and lots of laughter.
The summer may be over, but the great thing for dog owners is that we walk on the beach all year round! In Worthing that also means that the central beach area is great for dogs after being lead only during the Summer.
The Beach House is a fantastic dog friendly cafe along the seafront to aim for when out walking with your four-legged friends, we always have a very warm welcome for any dog walkers who visit. Dogs who pop in to see us can have a free biscuit from the jar on the bar (if you can’t see it just ask) and a fresh bowl of water on request.
Our wonderful seafront can be enjoyed in a number of ways, either with a flat and simple walk along the wide prom (dogs must be kept on leads along here) or on the beach itself. At high tide there are lots of pebbles to play in amongst, but at low tide a huge swathe of flat sand, with some pebble and chalk beds, reveals itself and then you really can walk for miles.
Walking under the pier is always interesting to see how the structure has been constructed, with seaweed and barnacles stuck to every surface. On days with a very low tide, you can sometimes even walk to the end of the pier on the sand below!
Dogs love a paddle in the waves and a chase of the sea birds that inhabit our wonderful beach. For information on where the beach is dog friendly during the Summer visit here, but we think a good bracing winter walk with your dog is best. Come and warm your feet with us and enjoy a local ale or your favourite drink, or perhaps even a bite to eat, we look forward to welcoming you to our dog friendly cafe bar soon.
