Sunday Lunch At Sussex Yacht ClubThe restaurant is run by the yacht club under the direction of our Club Steward Natalie Brett Stansell. Chef Alan and his floor staff are tasked with delivering members the best possible food at reasonable prices. We are also pleased to inform members that we can take payment over the bar using all the main credit and debit cards.

In addition to the very popular traditional Sunday lunchtime service, there is also a light lunchtime menu featuring great dishes at amazing member only prices - take a look below at the latest menu (updated March 2018).

Yeuch FoodYeuch... I don't like that!

For each function the Chef and Steward usually sets a themed menu designed to suit most tastes, but please remember that if the planned fare does not suit, then please let them know in reasonable time (a couple of days before would be great) so they can provide alternative.

For example you may not like fish, or you may be a vegetarian; all you need do is ask we will make sure you get a plate of food that'll make your mouth water. To book dining or make special requests please call Natalie the Steward on 01273 453717 or emailing

Free Birthday Lunch

happy-birthday-cupcakeMembers with birthdays receive a letter from the office entitling them to a free Sunday lunch! All you need do to qualify is to book a table for a minimum of four people and let us know. The birthday boy/girl will also receive £5 wine voucher, and this great offer from the Steward is valid for the entire birthday month.


The bar could be described as the heart and soul of our club. Without exception this is where members come together, be it for joyous celebration, official pomp, sombre reflection or just a quiet pint with friends, we all gravitate towards the familiar comfort and warm welcome from the bar team.

The bar and lounge at SYC was subject to a comprehensive refurbishment in 2015 and the Bar Manager Em has a well deserved reputation for delivering an excellent and varied selection of locally brewed cask ales. The line up changes regularly, showcasing the very best from local brewers both large and small.

Regular faces can be found at the bar most lunchtimes and is open according to the following schedule (revised 1 July 2015): 

  • Monday to Saturday 12:00 to 23:00
  • Sunday (and Bank holidays) 12:00 to 22:00
  • Closed Christmas Day, Boxing Day evening and New Years Day.

It should be noted that if nobody attends the bar for a whole hour during these opening times then the Steward may close the bar for the evening.

Members involved in regular activities such as the dinghy sailing at Southwick during the week who want to make sure they remain open should give the bar a ring on 01273 453717 to let them know they are on their way.
