We look forward to seeing you!

Head to the beach and visit our seaside restaurant in Bexhill, East Sussex.

The Tavern Kitchen at The Cooden Beach Hotel has a relaxed, ‘pub-like’ atmosphere, serving traditional ales and locally brewed Harveys beer. In early 2019 the restaurant underwent an extensive refurbishment to create a new modern look. There’s an open kitchen so you can see the chefs preparing your dishes.

Enjoy classic hearty fare including a range of burgers, ploughmans, a pint of prawns, sandwiches, paninis, jacket potatoes and salads, as well as the ever popular Steak Stones. These are a fun way to cook your own locally sourced 8 oz fillet steak on a hot lava stone just the way you like it!

Take a look at some of the food we serve in our gallery – which also shows off our location as a true seaside restaurant in Bexhill.

About our Seaside Restaurant in Bexhill, East Sussex

“On arrival we were extremely impressed with the new look it’s spacious and looks very sumptuous with big leather seats for relaxing in after or before a meal.The bar area is vast and again lots of seating for relaxing – the views are stunning. The food was amazing as ever (I recommend the Cooden Beach fish and chips!).”
