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.

    Booked a table for 9 for family aging from teens to 75 yrs old....
    the table was in a perfect location in the restaurant, right next to a cozy log fire..... The table itself was very clean and very well layed out.... the food and the friendly service we received made the evening a perfect one.....

    There was a slight problem in that my husband ordered grilled Halloumi, which was accidentally served on someone else's plate. The waitress took it off our friend's plate and put it on my husband's. I thought that my husband should have been served a new dish of Halloumi instead of having his scraped off another plate that the person has started eating from.

    Had run out of our first choice platter but it was still a nice lunch and plenty of time to stay and chat

    Sadly this wasn't the best idea we had. We arrived at 17.30 on a Sunday, greeted by plates stacked 5/6 high, empty glasses on most of the tables. We thought they must have had a busy afternoon....then we looked outside! Broken glasses around tables, cigarette ends scattered and most of the tables full of empty plates.
    We ordered and our food was served relatively quickly. One order was a steak, blue, when it was cut open it was medium rare, we were told that to have a blue steak it wud have to be served cold! Unbelievable!
    Several people complained about the food.
    Very disappointed. First family meal for a while. Waste of money.

    It was very busy so the service was very slow - over an hour - this wasn't too much of a problem as we were a large party and we entertained ourselves but would have been different had we been a couple! The food was OK but we all had issues with our choices ie. not hot enough etc. We don't make The Cuckmere out first choice as we have had bad experiences in the past - it's such a shame as it gets 10 out 10 for ambience/location.
