The West Beach Cafe provides basic cafe style food in an area were ther is nothing else to choose from. The fish and chips were reasonable and given the remote location not over priced. The icecreams were good quality. Staff were friendly even thought it was busy when we attended.

We've used this cafe on and off since it opened but this was our first visit in 2016. Sadly, it's beginning to look a bit shabby and the fare is going the same way. The indoor table we sat at was wobbly and dirty and the outdoor furniture was much the same. The staff were fairly disinterested in their surroundings.... More

We thought we get fish and chips at the west beach hut after visiting several Years ago and being impressed with its small but lovely refurbishment but I was disappointed, it was a lovely Sunday afternoon but the tables and chairs from outside were inside, so there was no where to sit outside, only a few seats which were already...

On a sunny weekday earlier this week, we took the ferry across to West Beach to walk our dogs and end with tea and cake. As regular diners at East Beach Cafe, we imagined this would be a lovely end to our walk. Sadly this was not the case. At 3.30pm the interior chairs were on tables and one of... More

Stopped for a tea and ice cream - nothing too difficult I admit, but all we could expect .. thank you. Ambiance was good too with the wide opening front of the cafe that opened the tables up to a pleasant breeze whilst giving great shade from the blazing sun.

I had a work party here to celebrate all of our achievements through the year. This was a great way to celebrate, a party on the beach. Although there was no seating inside on this particular night the weather was lovely enough to be outdoors. The staff were very friendly and helpful too.

Visited today late afternoon It is basically a fish and chip shop. This cafe needs something major doing to it including a good clean Tables very sticky and dirty, floor dirty, paint chipped. Couldn't wait to leave after cup of tea. Many people have walked a long way to get here, or paid for parking and there is no competition... More

With outstanding views across the river and over towards the east beach side of Littlehampton, this solitary café gave welcome shelter one wet and blustery day in May. My bedraggled dog and I were made to feel at home, and our spirits were soon boosted by a dish of sausage and chips and a mug of hot chocolate. I wasn't... More

Took my son and his family there, it is an ordinary beachside cafe and fairly exspensive. Nothing special, better elsewhere

I really like East Beach cafe. Basic food done really well and in an atmospheric environment. So you would expect the sister restaurant on the other side of the water, West Beach Cafe to be of a similar standard of cooking even though it basically sells fish and chips. The staff were OK, not impolite but not particularly friendly either.... More
