Marina, Bexhill-on-Sea, TN40 1DP

This Grade I listed, 1930s modernist building on the sea front in Bexhill-on-Sea made us feel as though we were on holiday in Nice as we sat on the suntrap terrace with the broad expanse of twinkling blue English Channel before us.

Watching dinghies from the local sailing club sally forth into the wide beyond, we perused the approachable and appealing menu. We visited for lunch, served from noon to 3pm, and chose from light options such as salads, jacket potatoes, sandwiches and mezze, as well as heartier main courses. I opted for fillet of sea bream (a replacement for the usual sea bass) served with sorrel new potatoes, broad beans and asparagus in a buttery white wine sauce – satisfying yet ever so moreish. My rustic-looking side of sweet potatoes came with homemade raita and an inspired jalapeño pesto dip. My partner chose the fish and chips, which boasted perfectly crispy batter encasing a generous portion of succulent, locally sourced plaice, served with delicious tartare sauce, a fine purée of peas, and again, those tasty hand-cut chips. Desserts of the day were a white chocolate cheesecake with black cherry ice cream, and a rich chocolate ganache tart with a poached pear in red wine sauce, both of which were superb. We sipped cappuccinos and soaked up the views before sauntering off to explore the galleries, followed by a sunny stroll beside the sea.
