Meads is a pretty village on the western edge of Eastbourne, nestled at the foot of the South Downs above the beautiful Holywell beach, offering a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants in a relaxed and friendly setting. Eastbourne town centre, with its wealth of theatres, art galleries, shops, international tennis, airshow and famous pier, is a mere five-minute drive away, meaning you will never be short of things to see and do.
Here at The Pilot Inn we pride ourselves on locally sourced fresh ingredients. Our meat is supplied by J.Heath & Son family butchers and includes locally reared beef from Bullock Down Farm, Beachy Head. Our seafood is supplied fresh from Beachy Head Fishing Company; both are within a few minutes of our location.
“Reasonably priced food and drinks, very helpful and friendly staff. Nice comfortable surroundings and great atmosphere. Well worth a visit"
“Probably the best quality food I’ve had in a pub for a long time. Plus it’s not the usual pub menu either. I had beautifully grilled and presented salmon, and my wife had Dover sole. We will certainly be back when we’re in the area again.”
“Visited as a family of 3 and had fantastic dover sole, scampi and chips. Customer service was amzing as well - didn't have to wait, all was perfectly timed. Great experience. Thanks”
“Stayed for 1 night. Accommodation very comfortable. Had roast dinner in the restaurant- excellent and a great breakfast Found all the staff very friendly and helpful Will definitely stay here again”
