Café Bar

The Café Bar is our beach cafe in Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, UK. It is situated next to the Brasserie on the Beach and Gin Palace. It’s a great spot for an informal drink and bite to eat.

Why not pop in for a coffee, one of our fruit or herbal infusions, hot chocolate or a pot of tea. If you’re feeling peckish, the Café Bar menu includes afternoon tea on a tiered cake stand, cream tea, sandwiches and ice cream sundaes. Plus a range of alcoholic beverages. Our Gin Palace has 18 artisan gins! (Pop over to our gallery to see pictures of the hotel interior and the food we serve.)

You’ll be right on the beach at our beach cafe in Bexhill, so why not take a stroll too?
