If you ever find yourself lost on Eastbourne's Grand Parade craving a place to rest your head and fill your stomach, The Pier Hotel and its Fishy Business restaurant will be the answer to all your troubles. Whether you're visiting on business or wishing to dine for pleasure, there's a menu to suit all - carnivore and vegetarian included. If it were five portions of fish a day we were advised to consume, then there would be no trouble fulfilling our quota here. Pop in for a lunchtime snack and tuck into Fishy Business mussels served the traditional way, with a white wine, garlic and shallot sauce (crunchy rustic bread also included). A light bite of seared tuna Nicoise salad could then suffice, as could the more substantial beer-battered fish and chips complete with homemade mushy peas. Things move up a gear with the evening menu, offering locally caught fillet of mackerel to start, and pan-fried skate wing served on a bed of crushed new potatoes, dressed in a mussel and caper beurre noisette, for main. There are also plenty of options that don't hail from the ocean; perhaps chicken and smoked bacon tian, a 12oz rib-eye steak or something from the specials board. Fishy Business (formerly Pebbles Restaurant) has recently enjoyed a complete refurbishment, so expect surroundings that are as polished as the food and service. Housed within the boutique Pier Hotel, visitors are offered the chance to enjoy the hotel's beautiful sun terrace, which overlooks Eastbourne promenade, pier and bandstand. The Pier offers all the amenities that a business traveller would expect (from free wireless internet throughout the building to a meeting room for 100 guests) and, with 31 carefully designed en-suite bedrooms, there's something to suit every need. The hotel is also the perfect place for family events, party nights or corporate meetings, and may be hired for exclusive use if desired.
