Which is the best Restaurant in Eastbourne?

Alongside Business of the Year 2019, we wanted to find the best places to eat in Eastbourne. To keep things fair we opened it up to public nomination and gave all the restaurants nominated a FREE feature in our A-Z of Businesses.

The nomination process was the same as our Business of the Year Awards which required Restaurants to collect a minimum of 12 Validated Reviews by the end of November at which point the following restaurants qualified:

  • Agora
  • Gr/eat
  • Old Dave's Gourmet Burger Co
  • Thai Brasserie
  • The Green Almond
  • Tuk Tuk Restaurant
David Ruddle was pleased to have visited all but The Green Almond and Agora to sample what was on offer and said: "I was very pleased with all the food on offer, service was great and all were very good value for money and hope to visit the others in due course"
The winner was confirmed on the 1st February based on collecting the most validated reviews by midnight of 31st January. Old Dave's Gourmet Burger Co collected 64 validated reviews during the competition. Highly Commended in the campaign was The Green Almond with 49 with Gr/eat in 3rd place overall with 34.
We asked Old Dave's Gourmet Burger for a quote and this is what they had to say.
"We as a team are very humbled by the support we have received from the people of Eastbourne since we first opened our door in September 2014.

Winning this award goes to show that all the hard work, long hours, very long years is paying off and we hope to continue on for many more years to come.

The majority of my thanks go to the great team we have at Old Dave's, from our every present faces out the front of Dan, Steven, Lyla, Amy and Sarah and our unsung heroes out the back of Matt, Shaun, Callum and Gareth. Without each and every one of them and all our awesome guys and girls who have come before them, there isn't an Old Dave's as all know and love it.

As a small family business, we would love to thank all of our customers who voted for us, our awesome local suppliers, Poppyseed Bakery, Brain's Butcher, The Cheeseman, Caterfresh and Cru for their continued support over the years and their brilliant products.

Personally, I would like to thank, my supportive wife, who has sacrificed a lot for the restaurant, my in-laws for their continued support, mentoring and help to start the restaurant and my own mother, who basically hears all my stresses over the phone on a weekly basis!

Once again, we as a team are very humbled by the support we have received from the town and Thank you all!"
If you have a favourite restaurant in Eastbourne please be sure to leave a recommendation.
