B12 Bar & Kitchen
A stand-out cocktail and wine bar in the heart of the market town of Hailsham, B12 offers a dining experience that will suit everyone, serving up a variety of tasty fare, from freshly made sandwiches to seasonal mains. The team at B12 strives to provide a comfortable and relaxing environment in which to enjoy quality wine, beer, main meals and snacks, making it ideal for friends and families to meet or for a work get-together.
At lunchtime, this dog-friendly and family-friendly venue offers a range of tempting sandwiches, all served with fresh fruit and crisps. The B12 club hits the spot with chicken, bacon, tomato, salad and cheese, while the fish finger sandwich with tartare sauce provides a comforting taste of nostalgia. Every Thursday you can order two sirloin steaks cooked to your liking and accompanied by Portobello mushrooms, tomato and your choice of potatoes and sauces, along with a bottle of red wine – all for just £40. Throughout the week, the rest of the menu is helpfully split into little dishes, which can be ordered as starters or tapas-style sharers, bigger plates and desserts. The selection of small plates includes delectable pan-fried pigeon breast, leg and wing lollipops served with cherry sauce and leeks, which would make a great starter or pair well with the wild mushrooms and smoked bacon served with garlic and cream on sourdough. Satisfied diners rave about the large plates, which include seasonal venison loin accompanied by braised potato, celeriac purée, creamed rocket and Port reduction. Vegetarians are not forgotten either; the beetroot risotto with goat’s cheese and walnuts, for example, is a hearty and satisfying dish with a great depth of flavour. Treat yourself to an indulgent finish with the Baileys cheesecake.
Visit from Tuesday to Saturday and you can enjoy two-for-one cocktails between 5pm and 6pm. This popular happy-hour deal is the perfect way to celebrate a special occasion. Additionally, regular open mic sessions, quiz nights and live music events draw a lively crowd during the evenings. After a busy Saturday night, why not stop in on Sunday morning and recover with a delicious cooked breakfast?
