Sunday Lunch
The Beachy Head in Eastbourne is a country pub oozing rural charm and rustic character. Our picturesque surroundings provide the perfect backdrop for savouring the hearty, seasonal pub-food on our menu, and the carefully nurtured cask ales and fine wines gracing our bar.

The Beachy Head Hotel started life as the Queen's Restaurant in 1880 and became the Beachy Head Hotel in the 1890s. During WW2 it housed an advanced listening post when according to one local, nothing was served but mince and onions. Today we boast a much more appetising menu in a lovely setting with great views over Eastbourne Beach.

Many guests are attracted to our award-winning pub for the great views of the Seven Sisters chalk cliffs and its proximity to South Downs National Park. During World War II, the pub served as a listening post.

Like always, nice service and a great location and view. Food, also as always was so so. Large portions, but meat is overcooked and overall quality is just average. But still worth it for the location. And puddings are the best offerings!

Come here on occasions, good honest food. Cozy atmosphere. Lovely views looking over the South Downs, try to ask for a table near the window for that. Was not happy booking on-line with Opentable as when I arrived there was no indication of my reservation. Fortunately, I arrived early before 12 and was able to choose. Do telephone direct for a reservation preferably, I did get just what I wanted on another occasion.
Good restaurant, staff obliging.

The Beachy head hotel was amazing. Unfortunately they hadn't received the booking from you at open table so will not be using you again.

Despite very busy time our pre booked table was ready, service was prompt and helpful and we all 6 enjoyed our different meals

Would not recommend this restaurant and I also would not recommend your service as they had no record of our booking. Which meant to eat we could not have waitresses service and our special occasion with our friends who had travelled 80 miles to see us was ruined. Rather than use this service I would recommend anyone reading this contacting the restaurant via another method.

The place is very good viewing. But the main food came very late so it was quite cold. And the tasty wasn't so good. And waitress wasn't so friendly at all.
