IT only opened in February – but Beerarama is fast becoming ‘the place to go’ in Eastbourne town centre.

It specialises in unrivalled selections of wines, beer and spirits at its attractive premises on Bolton Road.

And LOCAL is very important to owners Jamie Mooney and John Spriggs – all the produce they use is local and there are masses of Sussex drinks.

Live music and DJ evenings are also proving a big hit.

Jamie said: “We have been overwhelmed with the response since we opened doors.

“Trade has become busier and busier as the word spreads that we are open ad that we have such a great selection of drinks.

“We are also looking at food too. At the moment, that’s served weekends only, with some great specials, but we will be looking to expand that area in the coming months.”

it’s open seven days a week with Friday and Saturdays the late closing at 11pm. It is open from 1pm each day until the evening.

Jamie said: “We are delighted to welcome both locals and tourists. We have a great upstairs area as well as our bar when you walk in.

“There’s always a warm and friendly welcome, you’ll always find a smile on our faces when you come in.

“It’s a lovely atmosphere here – friendly, non-judgemental – and we want everyone to have a great time and come back again, which most people do we are finding.

“There’s also some great local art on our walls. Come and try us if you haven’t already.”
