We visit every year just to see the Christmas decorations! You need to book early as it is very popular.

Visited for dinner, and booked table, had to return beer as sour. Ah, end of barrel, no apology. Food is OK, but I can't help but feel business is good and they don't need to make the effort, and it shows. Only opens at 6.00 and maybe its me but I cannot help feeling they run the business around what... More

This pub is popular with the folk who live locally and is always busy. This, I'm sure, is as much to do with the friendly staff and amazing food as it is with the special offers they have on certain drinks. This visit to Eastbourne saw me visit The Marine twice - the first time with my mother and the... More

My wife and I were making arrangement to visit Eastbourne to take a relative out to lunch. We looked on Tripadvisor and the Marine seemed a very good choice for us and so it proved. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Christmas lights and decorations are extensive and we were certainly aware that the festive season is under way! We... More

Friendly staff, but the food is really terrible and overpriced. I visited for a family lunch because we'd seen that the Marine was rated number 8 out of all restaurants in Eastbourne at the time. I'm completely baffled about why it's rated so highly because the food is awful. It was like a bad school dinner, made with really cheap... More
