Sunday lunch at the Grand hotel is always good. We usually have the beef which is carved at the tables , cooked as you like it and delicious. The dessert trolley is a real treat.

Efficient, traditional, very welcoming, courteous. One meal was incorrectly served from the original order requiring a wait for another to be cooked and served but compensation was made by no charge on the coffees provided.

The food and service were very good. Unfortunately the cocktail bar which we had looked forward to was reserved for a private function and unavailable. This should have been notified to us. We observed the strict dining room dress code. Unfortunately the restaurant permitted a gentleman to break the dress code by coming in in shorts which revealed his bandaged legs, and allowed him to park his large walking frame with plastic tray by their table in our line of sight which gave the dining room the appearance of a hospital restaurant. A simple resolution would have been loose fitting track suit trousers and removal of the frame.

Our experience at the Garden Restaurant was nothing short of remarkable. The quality of the food, the service, the courtesies and attentiveness of the staff all contributed to a very memorable experience. The service was exceptional and all our needs anticipated and met without intrusion or fuss. The food was 'five-star' dining at its best; great choice of menu, superbly cooked food and an excellent wine list. Your Chef, your Restaurant Manager and all members of the Garden Restaurant staff should be congratulated. Thank you.

We had a lovely evening in the Garden Restaurant at the Grand Hotel, Eastbourne. The meal was excellent as was the service. The staff are extremely attentive and professional. The restaurant is very traditional and has an air of tranquillity about it. The fish cake starter was lovely and well presented. We had the pork loin for our main which was perfectly cooked as were the vegetables. No room for dessert unfortunately!

Top quality food. Beautifully arranged and it was perfect temperature. The setting was very smart, high ceilings and a proper damask table cloth with silver cutlery and condiments. I would go there again.
