B12 Bar & Kitchen is part of the local Bucklers Group in Hailsham owned by Melvyn and stands out from the crowd as a Brightonian style venue. Along with our fantastic range of wines, craft cocktails & gins, B12 Bar & Kitchen offers an immersive lunch and evening dining experience. The a la carte menu is changed seasonally by exec chef Nathan and features a range of smaller and larger dishes to match any appetite. The food is a mixture of classic British and European - think venison with celeriac puree, pork belly with potato terrine or scallops with black pudding. The High Street venue is much grander than expected in terms of size with a classy yet cosy décor over looking the picturesque local Church, making it a perfect choice for any occasion in Hailsham or even Sussex. The front of house team lead by ops manager Luke are all very knowledgeable in everything they offer and have extensive experience across all types of hospitality meaning they can cater for any desired e

    I had 3 courses my partner 2, the only negative was my 'Blacked pork' it was more chewy than I would expect of pork. The waiting staff were excellent, friendly, helpful & polite. I shall return but eat a different main course.

    The food was exceptional, however the service wasn’t the best! I have Been here on numerous occasions and never been disappointed, but this time around the service could have been better! Forgotten drinks, which we asked for on two separate occasions after ordering, being given the wrong bill…..I know people have to learn but the poor girl didn’t seem to have any support! Saying this it will not deter me from visiting again as I do like B12

    Service was very slow. My main meal came out 10/15 mins after everyone else’s so some of our party had finished eating before I got mine. Waited 20 mins for our first cocktails when we arrived. Waitress did automatically remove my meal from the bill which was appreciated but it was supposed to be my birthday dinner out and it did dampen the evening.

    We have eaten at B12 several times under the old and new management and the previous meals have been good. However, the last visit was disappointing because of poor food and high prices. The Pork Belly was a slab of fat with very little meat on it. My Sirloin Steak was not well done, it was gristly and there wasn't much of it, especially at £22.95. Side orders of veg at £3.50 - £4.95 each is too much. Please try a bit harder and we might come back.

    Food was excellent, but customer service left a lot to be desired. Given that the restaurant was virtually empty, the staff were incredibly lax and inattentive. The waiter and barman were constantly on their phones, and we had to ask to order both courses and for the bill, as the waiter was so distracted. The meal I received wasn't as ordered but there was no opportunity to raise this as the waiter never checked in with us. Otherwise, it was a pleasant experience, and would like to return in the hope that other staff members may be more attentive.

    What can I say to help anyone else decide where to eat in Hailsham? This was our second visit to the bistro - and we would come again. Our daughter was with us and said "I wish there was somewhere like this in Burgess Hill", where she lives.

    We eat with our son and partner visiting from Scotland. The atmosphere was perfect. Relaxing and congenial . The service was excellent with friendly staff. The food was good, with a slightly different choice. It was well present and attractive, in addition to being a high standard. Our only criticism would be a limited menu. Possibly due to the present climate of covid restrictions. But the drinks menu was excellent. We certainly will visit again.
