"We're all about the Food and Friendship"

Victoria, Owner/ Chatterbox/ Teamplayer

Front Room is a family owned and run Coffee House and Tapas Restaurant located on the High Street in the Heart of Seaford’s Old Town. The building dates back to 1896 and once upon a time Front Room would have been just that. This has formed the basis of our hospitality philosophy. We hope that you feel as relaxed here as you would in your own front room.

Here at Front Room close to our heart is the quote by W. Butler Yeats ‘there are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t met’. We aim to build strong and rewarding relationships with our team, suppliers and our customers ensuring that all involved get the ultimate customer service experience.

Our Coffee is provided by Ozone Coffee Roasters. We are proud to bring their refined artisan style coffee that is prevalent in New Zealand and Australia to Seaford. Our coffee menu reflects our passion for coffee and using Ozone ensures our Coffee House and Restaurant is part of the continuing and sustainable market that pays prices significantly higher than the Fair Trade minimum.

Don’t be mistaken though, we take our tea as seriously as our coffee which is why Front Room is proud to be offering a wonderful selection of teas from the Rare Tea Company  who source and supply the world’s best tea directly from farmers and their tea gardens.

Our mission is to source the finest quality ingredients, with an emphasis on local and seasonal produce to create dishes that draw on flavours from around the world. We are very proud to support our local producers and are very excited about using their products in our Award Winning Restaurant and bringing them to our tables.

"there are no strangers here; only friends you haven’t met"

W. Butler Yeats - something we aspire to.

"Outside Catering, TV & Film Location Shoot Catering and Wedding Catering "

Here at the Front Room we also specialize in outside catering, mobile catering, TV & film location shoot catering, weddings and event catering across Seaford and East Sussex. The Front Room is the perfect venue for a wedding reception and is available for sole hire or we can bring the Front Room directly to your front room or another venue you choose. We can offer Coffee to Prosecco, bacon butties to tapas and from January 2016 we will also be able to offer our Vintage French Estafette mobile catering van to any location in Sussex and the South East of England.  This would be a perfect addition to any wedding reception or catering event.

We have recently catered for Ellie Goulding, Vogue Magazine, Nick Clegg, WANDA Productions plus many more.

We are located in the heart of Seaford, East Sussex. Tucked just off the main hussle and bussle on the historic High Street in a beautifully restored victorian town house. We are in a perfect location for a break from shopping, a coffee to go on your way to the beach or the downs, or hopefully just a destination in itself.
