Charlie Browns Diner is a family run classic American Diner located in Seaside Road, Eastbourne, established well over 30 years and a place where you come with a healthy appetite as the portions are typically American. One of our specialties includes our home made 100% ground beef burgers which are 6oz and hand made on the premises daily, plus we have a selection of homemade sauces to compliment most meals and our steaks are always a popular choice.
