Afternoon tea at the Cumberland Hotel

Where better to while away a few hours, sipping tea from bone china tea cups and watching the world go by, than in the conservatory of the Cumberland Hotel, overlooking Eastbourne’s magnificent seafront.

At the Cumberland hotel, you are able to enjoy a choice of afternoon teas, ranging from the Cumberland value tea, Sussex cream tea, Devonshire tea, Cumberland tea and Celebration Tea.

A glass of sparkling wine, a selection of sandwiches and mini cakes, a scone with jam & clotted cream, fresh strawberries and cream and tea or coffee
