When the weather warms up, nothing beats eating al fresco does it? Particularly at a restaurant on the beach in Bexhill, East Sussex, with unspoilt views over the beach and around the coastline.

You can enjoy a tasty meal, a cold drink and an ice cream sundae on the large Beach Terrace at The Cooden Beach Hotel.

Whether you are stopping off during a walk along the beach with your trusty four-legged friend (who is welcome on the Beach Terrace), or joining friends and family to enjoy the sunshine, we’d love to see you!

The Beach Terrace is a stunning restaurant on the beach in Bexhill and is open from 1 April – 1 October each year and is open from early until late…

See our Beach Terrace menu below and let’s keep our fingers crossed for fine weather! If the weather changes, you can move inside to our other restaurants on the beach including the Brasserie on the Beach, Café Bar and Tavern Kitchen. See all our dining options.
