Social scene

Considering it's not a sprawling city, Eastbourne has a surprising number of great places to eat and drink.

We've tried to test out as many of these as possible.

All for your benefit of course.

Eating and drinking

You can have virtually any type of cuisine you can imagine within a short walking distance (or very quick drive).  Some good personal favourites of ours for food and/or a tipple include:

  • Best Indian ever and lovely owners at Ashoka on Cornfield Terrace (01323 733344)

  • Gastro-pub with outside seating – Bibendum on South St/Grove Rd (01323 735363) and sister Bibendum French on Grove Rd (01323 733631)

video-dance-party1Our clubbing days are (almost) over…  although you may occasionally find us at Maxim’s (over 25s) for a late night drink and a quick boogie on the basement dancefloor.

Popular dance destinations for those with more stamina include TJs nightclub (Terminus Road), Atlantis (on the pier) and Cameo (Langney Road).
