We are an exciting new independent café-restaurant opening in just a few weeks time!


Supporting and promoting the amazing seasonal produce that Sussex has to offer and working alongside the best of the best when it comes to local butchers, fishmongers, bakers, coffee roasters, wine suppliers and so on. By enjoying food when it is in season we are eating the very best quality we can, so the menus at Skylark are designed to change throughout the year, dictated by what is available to us and when. 

Providing an excellent level of customer service from professional, warm and engaging folk that genuinely enjoy serving you, in our contemporary but informal and comfortable surroundings.


For Breakfast & Lunch

Enjoy Breakfast classics cooked with the highest quality ingredients from local suppliers, served alongside hand-crafted coffee made just as you like it.

And for Lunch? We serve lighter lunches such as fresh fishcakes, sandwiches and salads, but also Downs reared beef steaks and whole fish from the fishmonger at the seafront for those wanting a more substantial meal. We always have a good selection of vegetarian options available as well as vegan and gluten free, and our chef is more than happy to adapt the menu wherever he can to accommodate any dietary requirements. Please do just ask!


For Diner

Bustling Skylark cafe gives way in the evening to a relaxed setting where diners can enjoy our a la carte menu by candle light, featuring dishes such as Sussex-bred lamb and locally-caught lemon sole.

Our carefully selected wine list offers a strong choice internationally as well as some beautiful English wines, and we are proud to stock the delicious beer from our nearby micro-brewery too. Skylark is available for private hire in the evenings (excluding Fridays and Saturdays) and might be the perfect venue for your special occasion- get in touch to find out more!
