With dramatic views of the cliffs of Beachy Head, the beach is literally on its doorstep.

For receptions The Dome is an impressive domed room with a wineglass chandelier that floods the room with natural daylight whilst the open plan gallery area with its exposed beams is ideal for smaller weddings.
