Boasting a premium location in the beautiful South Downs, and with panoramic views over the River Cuckmere and marshlands, The Cuckmere Inn in Seaford has a spacious interior with old world charm in the wooden beams and brick log fire. The accomplished menu of British pub favourites can also be savoured from the al fresco beer garden.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Cuckmere Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Cuckmere Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

The Cuckmere Inn is only 5 minutes’ drive from the pretty seaside town of Seaford, in East Sussex.

    Duck was excellent

  • ((((( 22 January 2017 by Pam Pavitt from Newhaven

    Our meal with you was superb.
    We had roast duck and the plaice, both of which were beautifully cooked and served. The sauce with the duck was superlatively good!
    The shared pudding platter was,as always, really excellent.

    Our table was near the fire and I have to say, in this bitter weather, it was a welcome and cheery sight.

    Out waitress was very helpful, served us efficiently and was very attentive.

    Warm relaxing atmosphere . Lorenzo, the waiter, had a good balance of knowledge of available wines, dishes and also discretion and friendliness.

    As usual the atmosphere was good, and busy, and the food very good. Plates and food could have been a tad hotter when delivered, but this could have been due to the staff being very busy elsewhere.

    Friendly efficient service, great location and fairly dog-friendly (although they also have dog free areas as well). Good choice of dishes for Sunday lunchtime.

  • ((((* 29 August 2016 by Janice from Bexhill

    Unquestionably the best location and views of the Seven Sisters Country Park for a family lunch. Atmosphere was relaxed and casual with friendly and efficient service; in particular from Caz, who organised a bigger table for our party, and Janet who waited at our table. A wide choice of dishes were available, however the majority of our party of nine (plus baby) went for burgers (both meat and veggie). Food was a little slow arriving from the kitchen, but understandable on a busy bank holiday weekend. Two of us shared a camembert platter for starters which was delicious. My main course of Morrocan Lamb was very tasty but a little low on value for the charge of £14.75 (perhaps include a flat bread, moroccan salad or additional couscous?). My partner enjoyed his choice of Wagyu Burger, but also commented that he would have appreciated more chips and salad with his choice. All in all our visit was very enjoyable and my overall rating was only slightly qualified by concerns over pricing/value. We are hoping to return soon to sample more of the wide selection on the menu and, of course, the fantastic views of the Cuckmere Valley.
