Vintage Tea Room
This is a rare independently owned tea room inspired by all things iconic and beautiful from any vintage period in Britain, whether it is 1920’s cocktails or mods and rockers, Falcon enamelware to Singer sewing machines. There has been a tea room or milk bar here since 1911 when the building was first opened as a roller-skating rink and entertainment centre. Now with three cinema screens, the building still holds its old charm and is perfectly situated a pebbles throw from the beach. Not just open to the public, the Vintage Tea Room is a quirky space for party hire after 6.00 pm. For more information please take a look at our Party Venue and Dining Events pages.
We love whole leaf tea, homemade scones, and Sussex Cheeses. The food and drink is a celebration of classic British seaside fayre from PG Tips and British Full English Breakfasts, to Blackdown Sussex Gin and Knickerbocker Glories. Open From 10.00 am -5.00 pm, the Vintage Tea Room has a delicious menu to satisfy all appetites. Breakfasts are served until 2.00 pm, with all other items available all day. Our coffees are aromatic, and the Gin menu extensive.
