Great service with a smile. There is a limited menu, but everything was freshly cooked . The beer was excellent and very reasonably priced.

This is a beautiful quaint little traditional pub with a great atmosphere, decent food and bags of history. Around 500 years old and you can really feel that when you walk in. Not in a bad way. You step down into the pub as the floor must have been dug out for the more modern taller folk of today. The... More

We have eaten here several times and it has always been good. Freshly prepared decent meals. No freezer to fryer here!! Best to eat quite early which suits us anyway. Friendly welcoming atmosphere just as a pub should be. They have good live music as well also a panto is coming up!!

Having driven past this pub many times on our way into or out of Eastbourne, my wife and I decided to travel the 12 miles from home and check out the dinner for a saturday night meal. The car park was only three quarters full so we had places to park, and from the outside the pub looked busy as... More

Certainly not what we expect from our customers. This report contains more errors than fact and would indicate that we are in some ways infringing health and allergen requirements. This is totally false and we would recommend that prospective customers visit us to judge for themselves and enjoy the dining experience that our customers experience. If you wish to peep... More

Stayed in Pevensey Bay for a week and popped in here every day. Great pub, excellent food and really friendly staff. Even the customers were friendly. I have a large greyhound and a whippet and they always made room for us. Definitely recommend.

Visited last Saturday for our friends wedding anniversary party. There was a room sectioned off where the buffet was laid with table chairs and cutlery set, so no fumbling around dropping food all over the place. The food was good, all home made and I especially liked the scotch eggs, battered fish with tartare sauce, prawns in lettuce, chilli chicken... More
