A 2 AA Rosette-winning restaurant perched on Eastbourne’s picturesque seafront, The Garden Restaurant serves impeccable British cuisine. From the regal dining room, guests can enjoy stunning views over the sea, and the cliffs at Beachy Head.

Sourcing supreme produce from Sussex farms and crafted under the watchful eye of executive chef Keith Mitchell, favourites from the Garden Restaurant menu include chicken supreme with truffled potatoes, or chicken, leek and bacon puff pastry pie. Glide across the Great Hall to the Grand’s cocktail lounge, and enjoy a high-end selection of pre or post-dinner drinks.

Dominating the shoreline, the spectacular Grand Hotel in Eastbourne is a luxury 5-star setting, and the restaurant’s lavish drapes, plush furnishings and high ceilings perfectly suit the majestic atmosphere.

The Garden Restaurant enjoys praise in a variety of culinary guides, including Square Meal. A landmark destination in this iconic seaside town, The Grand Hotel sits 4 minutes’ drive from Eastbourne Rail Station.

    Service was good. The steak I ordered rare, was not, and was also burnt as it had been griddled at too high heat.
    Very impressed with the pre dinner drinks in the bar.

    Having had afternoon tea on a few occasions, which we always enjoyed, we were looking forward to lunch. We were disappointed. We were placed in the Princes Room and when we went in there was only one table occupied, and they were being offered a bread roll. It was 20 minutes before we were offered one!
    The table was extremely unsteady so we were moved to another, which was almost as bad.

    Surroundings lovely. Food not brilliant. Starter was good;
    Main could have been better executed;
    Cheese Board; poor quality, uninspiring.

    There were 3 of us and we all had a very enjoyable, delicious lunch in the Garden restaurant. The room is stunning with all the original features and your staff are very friendly and efficient in making the occasion special. My favourite was the lamb, from the a la carte menu and my wife's favourite was the lamb from the standard lunch menu. We also enjoyed the starters - all 3 of us. Altogether it was a very special lunch.
    As if this wasn't enough, your staff member who looks after the cars when we came in was also very friendly and it's a real luxury to have him take it away and park it.
    This wasn't our fist visit to the Grand and it certainly won't be the last! Thanks to all of you.

    Having used the Garden restaurant many times everything was as expected, superb friendly service of the highest quality. Food choice and quality was first class. Excellent value for money, unique, a one off experience.

    Lovely traditional Sunday lunch. Roast beef delicious and cooked to suit taste.
    I would have preferred the table we have had previously. Don't expect fast food, the 3 courses take a while but lunch was very enjoyable
