Nice pub. Sat outside in the late sunshine before going indoors when my wife got cold! Pub is clean with plenty of seating. Good selection of beer etc. Very friendly staff.

We visited this pub after a wedding at the town hall, an area had been reserved and nicely decorated, the bar staff were very warm and helpful. The buffet a mixture of cold and hot food, it was very good quality and tasty. Expect this would be a good place for a special event or evening out. Well done

I've been visiting Eastbourne once a year with colleagues for the past 8 years and we've always visited Bibendum. The food & service have never let us down. The menu is very varied and offers a selection of dishes with varying prices attached. The staff are great too, especially Stevie who was professional & helpful. I'd definitely recommend dining here.

Several at my table complained that their food was over cooked and one lady couldn't eat her soup as it was just too salty. The staff were great though, very friendly, if not a... More
