The Hungry Monk R.I.P. :-(

Devastated to discover that our favourite restaurant of all time, The Hungry Monk at Jevington near Eastbourne, has closed after 44 years.  The birthplace of Banoffi Pie is no more! 

The restaurant had a unique combination of cosy historic surroundings, wonderful menus with locally sourced ingredients, interesting wines (and an ideal ‘taster’ selction with meals), attentive service and immense atmosphere.   Eating there was always a memorable experience and well worth the prices,  but evidently in these straitened times there just weren’t enough customers to keep it going.  Very sad.

Where can we go for our extra special celebration dinners now??

The building will be turned into holiday cottages.  They’ll be lovely.  Good luck to them!

We salute a great institution with gratitude and many happy memories.  Farewell, Hungry Monk…
