This month we celebrated Calum’s mums birthday! She chose to head to her favourite restaurant in Eastbourne – Charlie Brown’s Diner. A cute, family run American Diner, adorned with black and white NYC shots coupled with an awesome menu.
Ok so we don’t often write about restaurants in our home town but decided it was about time we did. The food here really is outstanding so we felt the need to share.
Charlie Brown’s is in the heart of Eastbourne, located on Seaside Road. It is just a 3 minute walk from Eastbourne Pier and a 10 minute walk from the Eastbourne Train Station.
The food is the reason we wrote this blog post.
For starters I ordered the deep fried breaded Camembert whilst Calum loved the 1/2 rack of ribs – yes, ribs for a starter!
For our mains, I fell in love with the Charlie Brown Burger – the beef burger was juicy and thick, the bacon was crispy and the egg cooked perfectly. Calum enjoyed the steak, served with tasty onion rings, peas and chips.
We were so full by the end of this, that we didn’t sample the desserts but that will definitely be done next time!
The restaurant is easily overlooked when walking down this busy road. The decor is simple, with wooden tables and chairs in a smaller than average restaurant. The walls are covered in American decor, with black and white pictures of New York, Coca Cola merchandise and American number plates.
The staff are very friendly, welcoming and will give suggestions to their favourite dishes on the menu.
Overall, this restaurant is definitely worth a visit. As you can see in the menu below, prices are reasonable for this style of restaurant. British chains charge similar or more but I promise you, chain food is nowhere near as good as the food in this little gem.
I would highly recommend this restaurant when visiting Eastbourne!
