“Lovely Grub! Lovely Peeps! Lovely Atmosphere!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Went on Saturday 16th as a joint Valentines and Birthday treat. Warmly welcomed like old friends. WARNING The portions are ENORMOUS. Share a starter and then go for a main. you'll never get as far as the desert unless you're a little piggy. Rib-eye was to die for, beautifully cooked and so tender, lovely home made chips. So nice I've booked for 14 of us to go in March during a local conference.

The starter was big enough for a main course. The best steaks in the area. Highly recommended................

“A Very Ample Portion”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

A most enjoyable meal with a more than ample portion of home cooked food in a family owned restaurant. Very convivial service in a very relaxing atmosphere.

“Great fun”
Reviewed November 18, 2012

You will always be guaranteed the friendliest of welcomes and you will always leave feeling full up and satisfied. I first ate here in the mid 80s and last ate here last Friday and it remains one of the best places to eat in Eastbourne. I can not recommend Charlies Browns highly enough!

“It's ok”
Reviewed November 17, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere was ok except for a large rowdy group placed in the middle of the restaurant which ruined the ambience and overall experience. The wine was brought to our table open and tasted watered down, we did send it back in favour of beer.
The main meal portion sizes in Charlie Browns are massive and we didnt need the starters we ordered...we left full up... Even if with a bit of a headache.
