A beach? In Fulham? The guys who have created Neverland describe it as a journey to a beachside paradise. On the first night it opened, the sunshine had been ordered, the skies were clear and we headed on down to see if paradise really had landed in South West London.
Yes. Finally, somewhere that we can enjoy summer days with BYOB as a rule. With tropics above us, we headed through the exotic archway of flowers that immediately made us feel like we were leaving the city behind. £10 per person to get in felt spot on. There’s plenty of seating and free deckchairs too if you’re quick. If you fancy making a more special experience you can pay extra and hire larger seating areas, day beds (up to 15) and beach huts (up to 8). There is even an option to hire your own beach butler!
Straight to The Unleaded Bar we went. It has a mouth-watering menu of cocktails. All of which are of course alcohol free – bring your spirit and the bar-men will shake you something delicious.
With cocktails in hand we went for a wander.
Al Fresco Is Our Favourite
The beach is white and sandy surrounded with pastel coloured beach huts and palms. It’s easy to forget that you’re in London.
We can imagine ourselves lazing away many warm afternoons with summer beats in the background.
Because British summertime can be somewhat temperamental, you’re covered under the Pergola if it does start chucking it down.
Sunbathing with Raclette
Street food always ticks a lot of boxes and the food at Neverland did not disappoint. Due to it being so good though, it is worth being mindful of queues. There are four tempting options to choose from; Taco Dave, Le Rac Shack, Baos Steaming and Lucabuca Pizza. Being greedy, we admittedly tried all of them. We can conclude that Raclette in the sunshine is a good idea.
