This April, Belgravia will see the arrival of its latest pop up – The Berkeley Beach Huts at The Berkeley on Wilton Place. Following last summer’s sell-out success of The Garden, the hotel’s culinary terrace hotspot will return, this time inspired by Britain’s most iconic and foodie seafronts including Whitstable, Southwold, and Padstow. Celebrating the Great British staycation, five rainbow coloured beach huts will sit proudly centre stage, whilst counter top and terrace dining will allow for as many seafood-loving folk as possible.
The Berkeley Beach Huts menu will embrace warm, family-style dining and the art of fun, alfresco service – a very welcome antidote to lockdown eating – bursting with fresh produce, with seafood front and centre. The menu will include crab on sourdough, baked scallops and grilled langoustine. Platters of seafood abundant with dressed crab, lobster, king prawns, mussels and clams will be a show stopping order, whilst delicious oysters will be freshly shucked. Britain’s much loved fish and chips will be given a 5 star twist, as large plates of grilled sea trout, sea bass and lobster will be accompanied by fries.
A breakfast menu will feature a ‘Seaside benedict’ and smoked salmon and caviar flatbread for a sunny and decadent start to the day. Plaice butties, asparagus and Tunworth toasties, brioche lobster rolls and more will also be served at lunchtime.
Diners will be dazzled by playful desserts transporting them to the coastline, from ice cream sandwiches to ‘make your own’ Eton Mess. The piece de resistance is set to be The Berkeley Beach Huts ‘Gourmet 99’ – traditional soft serve vanilla ice cream cones, accompanied by an array of indulgent flakes and toppings.
Drinks will include carefully sourced British wines as well as an array of cocktails and mocktails guaranteed to deliver joy. Shandies are showcased in both cherry and orange, and concoctions dubbed ‘The Diver’, ‘Mermaid Shell’, ‘Sailor Sour’ and ‘Pink Pearl’ are sure to raise a smile.
From Monday 12th April, The Berkeley Beach Huts will be open Monday – Sunday from 7.30-10.30am for breakfast, from noon for all day dining until late (last sitting 9.30pm).
The huts seat parties of up to six people. In line with government guidelines, these six people can be from different households due to the outdoor location. Surrounding terrace and countertop dining will also be available.
