Our History

The Dead Parrot was opened in 2014 by a group of passionate cocktail bartenders, to offer a unique drinking experience within Sussex.

Our cocktails are a culmination of 50 years combined experience.

Although some of our flavours and styles of serve may seem a little eccentric, we do take both the quality & taste of our drinks very seriously.

For those of you who prefer a beer or a glass of wine, we have scoured the planet to bring you some of the best grape & grain around. Everything we serve, we would happily drink ourselves; this philosophy is very important to us.

Our menu is seasonal & constantly evolving so there’s always something new & exciting to try.

So, please, sit back, relax & lose yourself; you’re in good hands.

Cheers to you,
Cheers to us,
Cheers to booze!



Dedicated Table Service

Why should you have to spend your time queuing or waiting for your drink to be made at the bar? If you reserve a table you are guaranteed to be seated in our upstairs lounge which is exclusively table service. Don’t worry though, we do try and provide as much table service as possible downstairs too!

Exciting Events

We are always setting the standard in Sussex for the best events around – one thing you can count on is us going the extra mile. Whether we have gone well over the top for a Halloween bash or we are hosting a Cocktail Masterclasses with one of our award-winning bartenders, there is something for everyone.

Our award winning bar team also attend industry competitions and events, which we have won accolades such as;
Monkey Shoulder’s ‘Best Bar Team in the UK’ 2015
Monkey Shoulder’s ‘Ultimate Bartender in the UK’ 2016
The Muddy Stilettos ‘Best Bar in Sussex’ 2017

Keep an eye out for the latest events!


Our Unique Menu

The Dead Parrot prides itself on high quality drinks with our own unique twist. We have a huge variety of quirky cocktails, and our own twist on timeless classics. Don’t worry if you don’t see your favourite drink on our menu though, as long as we have the ingredients we will make whatever you like! For those that prefer crafty beers or a glass of wine we also have a fantastic selection of beers and wines from near and far!

A great deal of research, tasting and effort goes in to every one of our beverages and we are extremely proud of the end results – come and see what all the fuss is about!
