Welcome to the Acorn Beefeater! We’re a quality steakhouse and family friendly restaurant close to Burgess Hill Town Centre. We’re the perfect spot whether you’re in the mood for a big breakfast to start the day, traditional pub grub for lunch or the best cuts of steak for dinner.

We’re proud to be part of the community in Burgess Hill and we’re always looking for ways to help out. In 2020 during lockdown, we donated food to the neediest at the Salvation Army. We also do a lot of fundraising for Great Ormond Street Children’s Hospital.
The Acorn Beefeater was built and opened in 2010. We’ve been a fixture in Burgess Hill for over a decade, and we’ve loved every second of it! It helps that we’re in a convenient spot, on the outskirts of Burgess Hill with good connections to Gatwick, Brighton and London.
Our restaurant has everything you need for a delicious meal out. We have a spacious, open-plan dining area with an open front kitchen, a comfy bar with booths and a pool table, and an outdoor dining area in front of our restaurant.
Our bar normally has quieter corners during the day that make a brilliant space for casual gatherings or small business meetings. We can usually accommodate any kind of events, just let us know in advance!
We also have plenty of parking available and free Wi-Fi throughout the restaurant. Focus on the food and the good times, let us worry about everything else.

Wherever you’re heading, every trip is better after a delicious meal with us at the Acorn Beefeater.
Everyone loves our steaks! Our 8oz sirloin steaks are one of our tastiest cuts and, like all our steaks, they’re aged for a minimum of 30 days, grilled to perfection, packed with flavour and served with chunky triple cooked chips, crispy flat mushroom, juicy grilled tomatoes and peppercorn sauce.
We recommend potato dippers to start, sirloin steak cooked medium rare for the most flavour and then a sticky toffee pudding to finish for one of our favourite three courses.
We serve a terrific Sunday lunch! With our Sunday roasts you can choose from our specialty roast sirloin of beef, rump of lamb, half-roast chicken or butternut squash & ale pie, served with all the trimmings and our signature red wine gravy. You also get unlimited roast potatoes and other delicious extras.
