The menu is varied and traditionally English, catering for all tastes and special diets when required.

Sunday Carvery

Come and join us for lunch in our lounge bar and sample our varied and tasty lunch menu. Served 12 – 2pm everyday. Whilst enjoying your food you can relax in our Sun Lounge or bar and appreciate the fine view across Eastbourne seafront. The hotel is located in front of Eastbourne Bandstand and just a short walk from Eastbourne Pier.


Sunday Carvery

Why cook a Sunday roast and do all that washing up when we can do it all for you? Served in the elegant Wordsworth Restaurant from 12pm-3pm every Sunday, we offer a choice of succulent meats, a tasty vegetarian option and unlimited vegetables; a great value choice for your Sunday lunch. We recommend pre-booking if you are part of a large group, particularly during the summer months.
