“Cru offers a fresh drinking and dining concept for Eastbourne.”

Cru is a wine shop, wine bar and restaurant offering a fresh drinking and dining concept to Eastbourne. Created by wine experts and food lovers to fill what we believe is a major void in the local market. Cru combines high quality, characterful artisan wines, all carefully selected by our team of wine geeks, with an ever-changing seasonal menu designed by our experienced chefs.

For those who just fancy a nibble to complement their wine selections we have sourced some of the finest local and international cheeses as well as charcuterie imported directly from the best regions of Italy and Spain to enjoy with your wines.

Our menu consists of a variety of “small plates” which can be ordered simultaneously (tapas style) or as a starter to go with our “large plates” for those who prefer a more traditional dining experience.

We have an ever-changing selection of wines available by the glass or carafe and regularly update our list of over 200 wines to ensure we can provide the very best in quality, value and variety. We also offer some of the most iconic wines of the world by the glass using the latest technology in wine bottle accessing to offer you a taste of something very special without having to invest in the whole bottle.

Cru has its very own wine shop where you can purchase our wines at competitive retail prices or pay a fair corkage to enjoy them in our friendly venue where there will be a wine expert at hand to aid you in your selections, we take great pride in our fantastic range of wines and are always happy to talk about them!

For those who don’t fancy wine we also offer a range of quality craft beers and ales, as well as a selection of premium spirits and mixers. Freshly ground coffee from Horsham coffee roaster is served all day if you fancied a warm drink while browsing our wine shelves. Keep an eye out for our regular themed wine and food events and tastings hosted by experts in their fields.

We can also host bespoke wine tastings for private parties and corporate groups ranging from basic wine tasting and wine knowledge to more advanced talks on specific regions and wines. These tastings can be arranged with or without food options depending on your budget and requirements. We like to keep these events fun and relatively informal based on your groups requirements.
