All your food and drink essentials from the local businesses you love
in one place

Eat local

Across the Eastbourne and Lewes District we have hundreds of food and drink businesses. Many have turned their business into a community shop, are offering delivery of key provisions, or are still offering a takeaway service.

Support local businesses and eat local.

Here you can find a list of local food shops, restaurants, cafes and takeaways in your area.

If you’re looking for local shops, please visit Shops Local.

Whilst we are trying to keep this website up-to-date, please do get in touch with the business directly for their latest customer updates.  While we have listed businesses by town / village, many will be happy to travel further afield.

If you would like a printable list of businesses please contact us.

If you’re a business owner that would like to be included or you know of one that’s operating, please contact us.  If your business also manufacturers food and drink, visit our sister website Make Local.

Please note that the businesses listed are not endorsed by Lewes District and Eastbourne Borough Councils.
