Dining in London: The Beach Hut

There are  SO many amazing restaurants to go to in London and we certainly haven't been able to get to half of them they we want to. Saving money for our wedding, following Paleo {most of the time} and get together with friends, we have been trying to eat at home quite often. However, Saturday night when my friend Ann asked if we wanted to get together for fish and chips in our neighborhood, I jumped at the idea. Not a fancy night out, but she had told me about this cute little spot and it was on my list of places to go. 
May I introduce to you, an adorable little spot in Highbury Barn, The Beach Hut
This teeny little spot in Highbury is a five minute walk up the street from our flat. The Beach Hut is only open in the evenings, so you may walk by it during the day and not even realize it is there. Located in a small little courtyard across from the Highbury Pub and next too the adorable green grocer Mrs. Lovell's Greengrocer sits this beach decorated fish and chips shop. My sister laughed and said "You can take the girl out of Florida but..", maybe she is right, a little cheesy seaside decor and I was happy as a clam. The restaurant is BYOB with no corkage on top, so for a cheap night out, it is perfect!
Traditional English fish and hand cut chips {Americans, that's french fries to us}, mushy peas, onion rings and prawns covered our table with a few bottles of wine. The music was a fun mix of the Rolling Stones and David Bowie, perfect to add to the fun British ambiance.
Hello little Prawns!
This dinner is for sure, not Paleo friendly! However, living in London, you have to live like a Brit and have a night out of fish and chips! Pretty simple plate huh? But it tasted so good! Ladies, a small size order is PLENTY. Beau ordered a medium and we laughed picturing how big of a fish you got if you ordered a large. 
Now I really do not think of waffles and fish and chips, however, this is what they offer for dessert and you know what....it works! The four of us shared a freshly made waffle with salted caramel ice cream and it was completely, absolutely, decadent and delicious. 
I noticed the adorable prints on the wall are for sale and I really want to go back and get one. Isn't the zebra print, "Life's a Beach" adorable? A local artist, Mister Peebles, is displaying their fun artwork there for the month. It was the perfect addition to this spot. 

I'm looking forward to the Summer time to be able to sit outside at the tables with board games and chips. I will certainly be bringing our Summer visitors to the Beach Hut! For less then £30 its the perfect, fun night out!

  1. Not every location is correct and appropriate for each bride and groom and there are informal settings that could become visible flawed for some couples' personalities.
