It said on their Facebook page that it was 'Temporally Closed' so my wife called them to check and we were so pleased that they were open. Great service from the man who served us and delicious food. I started with the Banana milkshake and...went for the sirloin steak. My wife and her friend had the ribs and it was al so good. The decor is fantastic and reminds me of our local 'Ed's Easy Diner in Nottingham. I recommend this place if you ever go on holiday to Eastbourne and top marks to the man who served us.More

We popped into Harleywood on a trip to Eastbourne. Ordered hotdog, burger and a chicken wing meal and OMG the portions were huge. Great value for what we had. Milkshake was nice too. Only downside was we were so stuffed didn't get to try the...puddings lol. The food was lovely. Decor was fab and staff friendly.. would definitely visit again if we are in Eastbourne again.More

Stopped at Harleywood Diner after a long walk from Cuckmere Haven to Eastbourne. Nice and clean and although we didn't have a booking we were able to get seated quickly for lunch. Good menu choices and good food portions. I had a Hot Dog with...Chilli and it was delicious. The price is reasonable and the decor and play on the menu names is fun.More

What a cracking diner this is…the decor is fantastic and the waiter was friendly. My 10 year old loved spotting the different movie characters. The Sully and Mike are brilliant. They play movies on the side of the booths with no sound which meant my...kids kinda switched off but it was good to watch when you know most of the words to popular movies like Toy Story Food was amazing! We ordered steak which was cooked as requested, chicken and waffles (a must it was gorgeous and absolutely massive) my lad had the LMB burger without the jalapeños from the adult menu and he really liked it We’ll definitely be back.More

I'm not sure whether or not they offer Gluten Free, you'd have to contact them directly I think.

Been at weekends and never bothered booking, but it's always busy so probably worth booking if you don't want to be disappointed.
