    Very nice views. Staff were great although a little over the top nice bordering on fake. Food was lovely although I think there should’ve been enough potatoes for equal portion to us both. But overall it was lovely, food was fresh and tasty although the beef was a bit chewy.

    A truly great Valentine’s meal! Very tasty food, the steak was perfection. We thought it very good value for the price we paid. Service was excellent also. We love this restaurant and consider it one of the best in Eastbourne. These people understand good quality food. Slight hiccup in the bill, but quickly sorted. Many thanks to the delightful Hannah and her team.

    Unfortunately we didn’t have a brilliant experience when we went for brunch. We had a hot chocolate that was barely warm and even when it was replaced, it still wasn’t very hot. The waffle and basket of mini hash browns were great and those were enjoyed. The 2 egg & avo toast were really disappointing - they were cold by the time they arrived with us, the bread was barely toasted and so had gone soggy under the toppings, the avocado was scarce, the eggs were tiny compared to the slices of bread & the bacon was burnt to a crisp (far more than “well done”). It was a really disappointing breakfast especially considering it cost well over £50 in total

    I primarily booked to meet a friend for coffee ,but having arrived and seated I felt like we were required to eat ! I had not had any breakfast so decided on poached eggs on sourdough ! This was very nice and eggs cooked to perfection. My friend had cake . It was all very enjoyable

    We really enjoy eating at Perch and the food is great. However at the weekends in winter it does get busy with take away drinks. Unfortunately this impacts on the time it takes to get yours as a diner . On Sunday morning we had to wait 25 minutes and coffee/tea arrived after our food.

    We booked ahead and got a nice table by the window. It was busy but the staff were great and the food came out quicker than I thought. It was AWESOME! Slightly costly but quality ingredients and tasted great so worth the extra ££ Will totally book to go again.

    Greeted by lovely young lady & told which table we are to be seated. Unfortunately it was a little down hill from there with the service. Waited approx 15 minutes in which time we tried using the app at the table, before asking if we are to order at the bar or if it’s table service. Ordered Sunday roasts & food came quicker than service. Food looked good but it was tepid & a little flavourless, especially the yorkshire puddings. Desserts were very disappointing, overpriced & used pre bought custard. Not in a hurry to return.

    This is the best place we’ve eaten and been able to take our puppy by far. The food is great value for money and delicious to boot. The service is great too, our puppy is quite nervous and when we asked to move to a side table, they were very accommodating. We are looking forward to our next visit.

    We had a really lovely visit! Great that we could book ahead and know we had a table to meet with friends. We had two young boys and a baby. I was worried we would disturb others as they are loud and energetic, but there were many families there and lots noise as it’s a popular place so we felt really comfortable. Staff very attentive and patient, lovely atmosphere and great menu! Grabbed some yummy hot drinks to enjoy in the park also. Thank you!

    We chose the wrong time. 2.45pm Main restaurant closed. Had a message on my phone hour or two before,asking if we could come earlier. Not possible. 2 out of our 3 choices were not available. If we'd known the table bookings obviously were much earlier probably around lunchtime, we would have changed our timings.
