Bistro at Etchingham Station
This new award winning place to have a drink and a bite to eat is a community interest project driven by local people for both the village and the commuters who use busy Etchingham station.

Beautiful buildingThe Bistro is located within a beautiful stone built Grade II listed building originally constructed in 1852 by South Eastern Railway. The community worked with Network Rail, Southeastern Trains and other sponsors to renovate the once partially derelict building to open a bistro and meeting place for everyone.
