“Outstanding Value- Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 6 June 2012

Wow - As a local to Pevensey I had heard people talking about this place. Took the chance over the long weekend to go with family visiting. 3 courses for £10.00 or the signature menu for £15.00. The choice of food was varied, within our party we had pate, garlic mushrooms and calamari. For main dishes again varied and good portion sizes, I really don't know how they make money. Desserts were equally as tasty offering tiramisu, trifle, icecream sundaes etc.There is no reduction if you only have two courses so pig out as we did. Price of drinks is reasonable too so don't worry about being hit by inflated drinks to cover low cost food.
Overall staff friendly and and attentive. We sat at 7.30 and starter came within 15mins of ordering.
We will definately be re-visiting and making sure to book in advance as thisplace will be jammed very soon as the word spreads.

“A good experience”
Reviewed 29 May 2012

At last managed to get a booking for the Moorings, we went on Saturday evening, was as busy as it ever is.
The food choice was fantastic, & the prices not bad either, we went for the 3 course for £15.00, my Husband was pleased to see the house ale was only £2.00 a pint!
The last course of our meal was not quite how we were expecting ( sadly we both ordered the same) & we were unable to eat it, but on noticing this the owner more than made up for it without any requests from us.
We hope to be able to book again soon & try a few more things.
The only down side was the food lacked presentation, but it was very good value for money, lots of staff & they kept checking everything was ok ( apart from the last course , otheriwse we may have tried something different!). The car park can get rather full so you may have to hunt a bit to park the car, if you can why not walk & save the bother!

We were a party of 12 and had lunch at the Moorings Restaurant on Saturday. Great food, great service and excellent value for money. Would certainly recommend it and will be going back soon.

“Thank You for a Fantastic 60th Birthday”
Reviewed 18 May 2012

Last week I had my 60th Birthday Party at the Moorings. We had been a couple of times before and found the service excellent so decided to have a family sit down meal on the Saturday lunch time. It eventually amounted to 35 of us all given a three course meal from the normal menu. Nothing was too much trouble and the staff and Manager Karen were more than helpful.

Every time I have been we have never waited long after ordering our starter it almost appears instantly and then gives you reasonable time to digest before the sizeable main course. Desserts are just as good and we found it excellent value.

I have lived in France for a long time and am married to a French man so know all food and find this one of the best value for money restaurants around Eastbourne. Trust me I have been to a few in the area that I can't believe are still open.

Thank You the Moorings for a lovely Birthday everyone had a great day and the price for what we had was unbelievably cheap!

“Excellent food, service and value”
Reviewed 17 May 2012

We are a group of eight friends and have formed a once a month dinner club. The Moorings was our first visit and I am sure we will be back as couples and family groups. The food and service was excellent. Although quite a large venue, it felt comfortable and intimate. We will certainly go back in the Summer when being "on the beach" will be a pleasant atmosphere. We are fortunate in that we all live within 10 miles and will recommend it to other discerning friends.
