Archant

With Sussex growing in reputation as a wine-producing region, it makes sense that the quality of our wine bars should be similarly high

Osteria

Ristorante Pappardelle has been open for over 28 years and is the longest trading restaurant under unchanged management in Arundel. Its adjoining wine bar, known as Osteria, offers a relaxing and sophisticated environment. There are more than 30 wines available by the glass along with a bar full of cocktail options. As for light bites, they serve wonderful cicchetti – bar snacks found in Venetian bacari – as well as sharing platters to soak up the wine.

41 High Street, Arundel BN18 9AG

Paris Wine Bar

An extensive wine list, including the intense Brunello di Montalcino, is just the start at Paris Wine Bar; there is also a seasonal menu, ranging from beef burgers to crab cakes. To sample some new tipples, the bar runs special tasting events with the chef preparing a selection of dishes to help find the right wine for favourite foods. Paris Wine Bar also caters for large groups, hosting parties, receptions and work nights out.

119 Church Road, Hove BN3 2AF

Chapter 12 Wine Bar

This live music and event venue opens Monday to Saturday and has a locally sourced menu to accompany the wine. The wine list features offerings from around the globe; the Romanian Cosmina-Pinot Noir is priced at £18.95 a bottle and the German Thanisch-Riesling Hochgewachs is £25.95. There is a monthly wine tasting headed up by different experts, such as David Elford from Crimson Gold or representatives from Hailsham Cellars.

12 High Street, Hailsham BN27 1BJ

Cru

The regularly updated list of more than 200 wines here is carefully curated by Cru’s experts with all available by the glass or carafe. With its very own shop, Cru is the perfect place to try before you buy. From the kitchen, enjoy a seasonal menu in tapas or traditional style along with cheese and charcuterie boards.

8 Hyde Gardens, Eastbourne BN21 4PN

Fourth & Church

Run by cooks and wine enthusiasts Sam Pryor and Paul Morgan, this bar works closely with local merchant Butler’s Wine Cellar to source a range of interesting and more familiar wines from around the world. Informal tastings across multiple themes are available for private groups, all with accompanying food options, from charcuterie and cheese to cured and smoked fish.

84 Church Road, Hove, BN3 2EB
