A NEW restaurant will open in Eastbourne once Lockdown is lifted.

Smokehouse 89 is a family-run establishment in South Street.

It will be serving up classic American style BBQ, cooked traditionally low n’ slow in its in-house smoking ovens.

It is number 89 South Street, which used to be Old Dave’s Gourmet Burger Company.

A spokesperson said: “Smokehouse 89 is our first family run establishment here in the heart of Eastbourne – The Sunshine Coast.

Although many of our ingredients are locally sourced from in and around Sussex, we aim to use them to transport you over the pond to the BBQ pits of the USA.

So hold tight whilst we add the finishing touches and we will be ready to welcome you very soon once Boris gives us the green light, of course.”
