Our food philosophy

Your table is waiting

Here at The White Horses, you’ll find delicious seasonally inspired food served all day, every day, with breakfast and all-day menus to explore.

Whether you want to start the day with a nourishing breakfast, fancy a rest after a long beach walk or feel like treating your family to an extra-special dinner, our restaurant and sea-view terrace is open to everyone.

We’ve even got a function room for special events and private dining experiences - just call the hotel directly for more details.


Choose your favourite, or try something new

From salads to soups, seared fish to Sunday roasts, our hotel menus are inspired by the changing seasons, each carefully curated by our chefs to harness every ingredient at its absolute best.

Keep things light with our sharing plates and bar snacks or go all-out with a three-course dinner, indulging your taste buds with our moreish mains, like our Beach Club Burger or our Roast Free Range Corn-Fed Chicken, served with pommes Anna, broad beans and garlic butter.

And no seafront restaurant menu would be complete without a classic plate of Fish & Chips. Our version features a tasty cider batter, with pease pudding, seaweed tartare sauce and gerkin ketchup on the side.


A love letter to the South Coast

From the East Sussex honey we spread on our toast or the Spring Lamb Rump served for dinner, you’ll find artisanal ingredients taking centre stage on all our menus, celebrating the care and craftsmanship of farmers, cheesemongers, bakers, fishmongers and butchers. The people who love what they do, love doing it well, and love doing it in a sustainable way. We always prefer to use local, regional and British produce where we can, so we can put the freshest flavours on your fork... and reduce our impact on the environment.

Need a little inspiration? Start the day with the White Horse Eggs Royale, served with smoked salmon from Seven & Wye in Gloucestershire. Enjoy a glass of wine at the bar with a Whole Crab Rarebit. Or enjoy a romantic date night with a Baked Sussex Camembert for two.


So, feeling hungry?

Working lunches with your laptop, a little snack while you catch up on your favourite book, a weekday brunch with your closest friends or a hearty Sunday lunch with all the family; whenever you’re feeling hungry, discover delicious food served all day, every day.

Take your palette on a culinary journey with mouth-watering dishes for every occasion and every appetite, including a great selection for vegans and vegetarians. And with a sea-view terrace, a stylish dining room and an elegant bar to choose from, there’s no better place to kick back and relax.
