Restaurant description

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.

    Returning after many occasions. The service and food was superb. We still judge every other restaurant in the UK and abroad by the Garden Room Restaurant and really no other restaurant has come up to the standard maintained at The Grand. Lovely occasion as always. Well done!!.

    We dine here whenever we visit my mum as a treat for her. This was the worst experience we have had. The service was incredibly slow. The beef was not as tender as usual and the meal was poor value for money. We wanted to take coffee outside as we had been sitting in the restaurant for over 2 hours but could not. We will be voting with our feet I’m afraid.

    Lovely building with fabulous period features. Service on arrival was poor - ordered drinks in the bar which did not arrive in 20 minutes so we cancelled them as our table was ready. Restaurant entrance had a sign saying "Please wait to be seated" but although staff saw us there they didn't make any attempt to seat us so after 10 minutes we had to ask a passing member of staff to chase the restaurant staff up. Once we were in though the food was well presented and very tasty

    We were a bit shocked by the prices of the main courses but for a special occasion (our wedding anniversary) it was a great pleasure to be in a very impressive dining room that probably looks much the same as when it was built over a hundred years ago.
