The Hidden Cellar
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
The team at The Hidden Cellar is passionate about supporting local suppliers by sourcing fresh ingredients from the locale, as well as Sussex wines, beers and ciders. Everything is home-cooked - no microwaves are used here - and menus change seasonally. As everything is made in house, dishes can easily be adapted to suit dietary requirements - they even bake gluten-free bread. The Hidden Cellar can also expertly cater for private events. This dedication to quality and freshness has earned the restaurant quite a reputation in Eastbourne; the restaurant was voted the third most-loved business in Eastbourne in 2013 and was awarded a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 2012 and 2013. Start the day with something from the tempting breakfast menu - perhaps the American-style pancakes, classic full English or crispy bacon and scrambled egg. Lunchtimes see a vast array of tasty sandwich fillings offered on a variety of different breads, resulting in almost endless combinations - will you go for a Turkish flatbread brimming with goat's cheese and grilled veg, or perhaps a bacon-filled granary bloomer sandwich? The seasonally changing evening menu features refined takes on classic dishes. You may find starters such as fig and goat's cheese tartlet or crevettes in garlic and lemon butter, and mains like locally caught, pan-fried whole plaice or 40- day-matured Beachy Head rump steak. Whichever dishes you plump for when you visit, you can be sure they were made with care using the best Sussex produce - you can even find a list of suppliers on The Hidden Cellar's website.
