How to find us

Set in the peaceful surroundings of Newhaven and overlooking the beautiful Firth of the Fourth, The Old Chain Pier is a warm, friendly and intimate venue for you and your family to pay your respects to your cherished loved one.

Our Head Chef has created a range of delicious funeral buffet options from which you can choose when planning your visit. Our professional and friendly staff can also make suggestions and help you to choose from the buffet menus, allowing you get the best mix of food and drink for your guests.

On arrival, you will be met by one of our management team and they will be available throughout your visit to attend to any further requests or requirements. You will be shown through to our beautiful conservatory where your buffet will be laid out and drinks can be ordered from our friendly and welcoming staff.

We appreciate and recognise the importance of your own private space, so when you choose The Old Chain Pier for your funeral tea you will have exclusive use of our intimate and cosy conservatory which can hold up to 35 people and you and your guests are welcome to relax and reminisce for as long as you need. A further 25 people can be added into our main bar area if you wish.
