Lee and Debbie took over the business in November 2012 and changed the name to reflect both their vision for the business and their historical links to the area. Beth, Sue, Ellie, Tina, Haley, Jessie, Libby and Ella have been fantastic additions to the team since this time.

The Beehive on The Green is a small independent delicatessen and café located on the green in the beautiful Sussex village of East Dean. We are right opposite the pub and have a lovely view of the downs from our windows.

We serve tea, Illy coffee, cakes, scones, pastries and a variety of light lunches made using the ingredients we stock on our shelves and in our delicatessen counter.

We stock Italian and Spanish speciality foods, along with award winning locally made bread, local cheeses, beer from the local Beachy Head and Long Man Breweries, honey and preserves from East Sussex as well as a wide range of other items that we source both locally and from further afield.

Pop in and see us to be assured of a friendly welcome and delicious fresh food, as well as great ideas for gifts, hampers, or the perfect picnic for the beach or the downs.
