We often visit the Pump Room during our Brightin visits. To grab a quick cup of coffee or a healthy smoothie after a (too) long night. Last Saturday we tried the berryboost smoothie. It was really delicious and and made with fresh ingredients. Lovely place for coffee, icecream, sandwiches and smoothies.

What more can I say. It doesn't look like it from the outside but this place is a little known gem. Superb toasted sandwiches made with fantastic locally made rye bread and a service with a smile as well. They also serve a vast range of lovely ice creams.

We planned to stop here for a single drink, listen to the live music and then move on. That was at 3:00 and after 4 different music sets and more than 1 drink we left at around 7:30! Pleasant staff, nice surroundings - everything you'd want for a little R&R

A great place to enjoy a great cappuccino. Really nice coffee, and a great view to the old pier. The new i360 tower is close by.

The children got an ice cream and we had Cappuccinos. That is the best coffee I had during the summer vacation in UK this summer. Coffee just tasted real good, there were clean tables to sit by and the view was nice.

Excellent service, great value, friendly staff and quite frankly possibly the best toasted bacon sandwich I've ever had. Great icecream, tea, coffee and smoothies too. Convenient for the Conference Centre

Probably the best spot on the seafront to buy coffee, nice and strong, not bitter, well made by friendly staff. Good locally made ice cream, if a little pricey. They also do their own squeezed orange juice. Nice place to sit and people watch, park your bike or watch the volleyball.

We had kept meaning to have an ice cream whilst on holiday. It is in the sea front and has very friendly and genuine staff. The ice cream had over 30 flavours. The name is from the room, which used to pump 3 lots of salt water into the Grand Hotel to help the guests!
