Café Bar & Kitchen 

Enjoy picturesque sea views and delicious food and drink in the stylish Café Bar and Kitchen. Our delightful menu offers a wide and varied choice of light lunches, snacks and homemade cakes. Enjoy a hot beverage whilst relaxing and enjoying the views in our dining area. See our menu here

Offering modern cuisine made from simple, honest ingredients, the new Menu has been specially-designed by the DLWP’s Head Chef, Peter Zimoch and his team. It features homemade soup, freshly made each day, sandwiches, gourmet jacket potatoes and a selection of hot meals including Brighton Rocks' fish and chips and spicy chicken skewers with couscous.

Creating delicious dishes from fresh, seasonal ingredients, sourced locally where possible our kitchen uses fresh fish and seafood that is locally-caught, meat that comes from local butchers and bread from local bakers. Our Pastry Chef specialises in homemade cakes, sourdough bread and foccacias, which are baked daily here at the De La Warr Pavilion.

We offer a fantastic range of wines, boutique beers, soft drinks and full roast Illy coffee to quench your thirst after an afternoon exploring the Galleries.

Menus are subject to variation. The Café Bar and Kitchen does not take table reservations, however please order at the bar and your meals will be brought to your table. WiFi is available in the Café, please ask a member of staff for more details.
