London Secret Beach

£25 and under
Pan-Asian
Tucked away between Kens Bar & Garden and with St Stephens Church as a backdrop; visitors enter into a setting so calm, it's enough to forget that they're still in Central London.
The beach is furnished with a mix of sun loungers, cosy cabanas and beach sofas providing exclusive comfort and style.

Reservations are based on a minimum spend of £20 per person based on a 3 hour time slot. As space is limited, reservations are non refundable. However if the weather doesnt support us on the day we will be glad to issue a refund or book you in for another day.

The Beach is available for private hire for corporate BBQs, networking drinks, after work catch ups and team building.
The beach is open all week from 11:00 till Sunset. With temperatures rising, it is recommended to book in advance. However, if visitors aren't able to make a reservation, adjoining the beach is a Secret Garden with the same vibe.

Not what I expected. I was wanting to love this place, as I live very close by, but I was greatly disappointed. Due to a few children’s parties we were sat away from the garden/beach areas. There was no table services and the drinks were a disappointment. We witness a few parties eating in the domes, two of which were removed to a further table outside in order to eat their deserts - there was no-one waiting to go into the domes straight after them. I will not be returning.

I read the reviews below and was quite worried as they weren’t that good, however, thought to give it a try and was very pleased!
Definitely recommend going on a sunny day as it makes a difference! The staff were very nice and accommodating, especially Ash and Vicky, and the barman too.
They serve halal chicken which is great! Food was lovely!
Perfect place to go with your partner or friends to pop by and grab a quick bite and pre drinks!
Looking forward to coming back!!

It mentions that if the weather is bad they will reschedule, we called ahead to ask if it would still go ahead in advance on the day as we saw there would be torrential rain. We were assured that all would be good. When we arrived we were seated and not told you are supposed to go up to order drinks at the bar yourself - it took 40 minutes before we were able to get the attention of someone who then decided to mention this. It was absolutely pouring down with rain, the menu was paper so ripped and we were unable to even hold them up as they stuck to the table
We asked multiple times to move into the tent/ under the canopy but were told there was no space. Meanwhile we had seen people sitting where we were in the sand moved to another place under shelter
They didn’t have the squid- so we didn’t order any food
The sangria was 90% ice and definitely not worth £28
The reservation fee at £20pp is an absolute joke - service is bad
In short, avoid this place it is a waste of money with cheap prints outside like someone hastily decorated their garden during lockdown and sprinkled a couple of bags of sand over some grass

The staff did not have our reservation on file, the experience was not at all what we were expecting based on the photos, and the staff were rude. Our reservation stated that we would be contacted and rebooked if weather was poor, which we were not, and then we were expected to sit in the rain. The manager was clueless and very rude.

We have been looking for fun outdoor seating areas that not typical London pubs. This was a lovely place to relax with a drink to enjoy a Sunday afternoon

When we arrived the staff were perplexed, and a little obtuse, as it turns out the Beach Club is completely nonexistent and they still have the winter igloos installed!

I appreciate that mistakes happen, but the staff didn't even apologise at all! They simply looked at us as though we were a three headed beast for having made a booking....

We went somewhere else for lunch but did go back to the garden for cocktails which can only be described as mediocre at best

I ordered a non alcoholic cocktail but it came up as an alcoholic one. I eventually received a non-alcoholic cocktail but it cost £12. The alcoholic one cost £9, how can this be right, really a big rip off. The food was good though. (But expensive)

Nice idea if the weather is hit and sunny. Cocktails were overpriced and not that good. Worth a visit

Went here for my birthday with friends, the service here was absolutely atrocious. Had to wait 45 minutes to even get our orders taken, and by then we had had to call a server over to our table (multiple times, I may add). We we told two different times, twenty minutes after the fact, that the two different drinks we ordered could not be made. This information should have been relayed to us while we were ordering the drinks. No perfect ambience or quality of food could make up for the service we experienced. However, I will say that the food was overpriced and the setting was underwhelming all things considered.

I was able to book outside seating for two, but upon arrival I was told that the whole outdoor area was reserved for a private party and so my partner and I had to find somewhere else. The staff were very unhelpful in dealing with the situation and could not offer an alternative place to go. Luckily we both live in the Gloucester Road area, although if we had been travelling from elsewhere in London we would have been extremely unhappy.

Vert slow service.

Waitress not friendly or interesting on doing her job.

Avoiding eyes contact to get the bill and we end up having to go inside.

Not a good experience
