Came here for a couple of drinks before going out for dinner. I had a strawberry daiquiri which was lovely followed by a purple rain, which wasn't to my taste but was okay. My boyfriend had a espresso martini which he enjoyed. Place does lack seating for evenings which is a shame, as everyone then hangs around the bar and... More

I have been twice for the cocktail clinics with a group of friends and wanting to come again. Great value for money with the making 3 cocktails and shots for 23.99 on a weekend. The owners really have a little gem here for Eastbourne. Keep up the good work

The most delicious cocktails you have ever had, lack of seating is an issue but just make sure you get there early in the evening to get a seat. Cocktails are not cheap but worth it.

Trying to be something it isn't. Tacky, noisy, over priced and overrated. Sofas - why? I had to use the disabled toilets as I cannot manage stairs - absolutely disgusting! And glasses were infrequently collected from the small tables. I will not return, nor will I recommend to anyone.

We've been to Hudson's many times for our favourite margueritas. But this was the first time we've tried their cocktail clinic, as there were 9 of us last Friday. £23 for 3 cocktails each, a couple of shots, and 2 hours great fun learning how to make each cocktail. Our barman Charlie was fantastic, and I can fully recommend it... More

We stopped here for a drink before dinner whilst staying the night in Eastbourne. Central location, plenty of seating, small outside area. Nothing amazing but pleasant for a drink.

The two brothers that work the bar could hold a masterclass in customer service and bar skills. Their cocktails are absolutely top class and they are superb with customers both old and young. We have visited with children in the afternoon for lunch and for evening cocktails and Hudson's never disappoints.
