My daughter and I visited Charlie Brown last week for an evening meal. We were most impressed with the friendly service and menu which included vegan dishes. The meals served were very nice and we will be visiting again.

I thoroughly enjoyed my meal there (huge portions!), and the waitress was lovely. Maybe the decor and menus need a bit of updating, though.

Charlie Browns Diner is a family run classic American Diner located in Seaside Road, Eastbourne, established well over 30 years and a place where you come with a healthy appetite as the portions are typically American. One of our specialties includes our home made 100% ground beef burgers which are 6oz and hand made on the premises daily, plus we have a selection of homemade sauces to compliment most meals and our steaks are always a popular choice.
