Visited on a Sunday and the Pub was busy, Christmas decorations were amazing, staff were friendly so we felt quite relaxed. Met some friends for lunch on Friday and the Pub was nearly empty so very different atmosphere. The Barmaid really didn't put any effort into serving us, food was very average Pub grub. Disappointing so we are unlikely to... More

we live in sovereign harbour but use the Marine as our neighbourhood pub as it has that comfortable social feel that a good pub provides. Take the specials menu and you will get good tasty home cooked comfort food at the right price, the bar menu gives the burger, macaroni cheese stuff that is never going to be exciting. Some... More

This is an astonishing local pub. Over Christmas it is a MUST to go to this pub as they welcome you with the best Christmas decorations. The food is great. Be careful as the portions are very big.

Amazing food- great variety for all tastes including vegetarian. Freshly cooked tasty food with reasonable portions and good value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Great environment with cosy areas for eating and drinking and an incredible amount of Christmas tinsel which made you feel as if you were entering Santa's Grotto! Great mixture of customers including locals.

Just off the seafront, a few minutes out of town is the Marine pub where a warm welcome is always guaranteed from the landlord. It's our favourite haunt in Eastbourne and we have just had a wonderful meal and family get together there on New Year's day. The food is great. A comprehensive menu and delicious food which comes in... More

Firstly at Christmas the decorations alone are worth a visit but also the food and service is outstanding. The landlord is friendly and creates the perfect atmosphere. Very lucky to have this pub on my doorstep.

From the outside The a Marine pub does not look very inviting. Do not be put off, venture inside and you will be more than pleased. They have a very comprehensive menu to meet all tastes. Beautifully cooked, always hot and very good portions. The staff are fantastic, they make you feel very welcome and always try their hardest to... More

Had a really lovely meal from the extensive menu in what was a very busy popular pub. Food was plentiful and first class. Beer was a good quality pint. The Christmas decorations throughout were a total wow factor.

we had a really good luch, excellent fresh vegetable and delicious food which was also good value, the only slight negative was the mens toilet which was smelly and tatty.
