Private Dining Functions

Private dining functions allow you to celebrate with your friends and family in an exclusive space. With stunning coastal views, The Cooden Beach Hotel is the ideal location for any occasion. So if you’re celebrating anything from anniversaries, birthdays and christenings to the life of your loved one at a wake, we can help.

Our private dining offering comprises seven room options with various sizes, providing you with a wide choice of suitable options for your occasion. The beach location is beautiful and it’s easy for your guests to get to. The hotel is within a five-minute drive of the main South Coast road and there’s lots of parking too. Located nearby is the Cooden Beach train station with direct routes from Eastbourne, Brighton, Hastings and London Victoria.

If you book one of our private dining function rooms, your guests will be able to choose from a delicious seasonal menu featuring local produce. Whether it be a 3 course private dining menu or one of our buffet options (including mixed hot and cold, fish and chip and ploughman’s buffet).
