Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Friendly good service and good food. A safe bet for a reasonable meal at a good price. Relatively close to Rye and Winchelsea and a good traditional fair.

Superb confit of duck last night. Indeed, the entire meal was excellent. The Two Sawyers has definitely upped their game. Highly recommend.

Chose The Two Sawyers whilst we were in the area for a family get together as they feature a good GF range and are dog-friendly. We experienced a warm welcome and at no time were we hurried to order or eat. The food was fabulous...with all seven of us offering a five-star rating. In fact my father said that the sticky toffee pudding was infinitely better than one he had at a Marco Pierre White restaurant a few weeks earlier. As for me, a special mention for the fully loaded chips which were just fabulous. I wish I lived closer so I could make a return visit. I'll certainly make tracks back here next time I'm in the area. 10/10 (in fact 11/10) 😁More

We were staying in the village of Pett for a week with family visiting for a couple of days. We booked a table for Saturday night for 6 adults and 3 children in the restaurant. Staff were very friendly and welcoming. Service was excellent and...the food absolutely delicious. We booked again for Sunday lunch which had the choice of roast dinners or normal menu. Some of us had the roast beef lunch others off the main menu. Once again absolutely delicious. We were so impressed with visited on two more occasions with other family members . Delicious fresh fish and gorgeous desserts. Such a friendly pub with staff and locals alike . Nice garden to sit in . Definitely worth a visit and suggest booking.More

We stayed for three nights. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. Access to it, and other bedrooms, was via a steep and difficult stairway. Anyone who is not fully fit and able might find it very difficult to climb. It was disturbing and potentially...very dangerous to find a fire door wedged open. Particularly as on three occasions the fire alarm in our bedroom went off and we had to find a member of staff to establish whether or not there was a fire. Apparently smoke in the kitchen was the cause. We had breakfast on three occasions, on two of them the breakfasts were excellent. The poorest breakfast was the first we had and the service was haphazard and the food was over cooked. The cost of accommodation here is not cheap so to just put a notice in the room stating that they can’t be bothered servicing the room during our stay is just not acceptable. We had dinner on our first night, one meal was fine the other was not. The shredded duck salad was spoilt by the duck being so overcooked that it was hard and stringy. Just about edible but not enjoyable.More

5 Stars. If we lived nearby it would be our go to local and restaurant. We stayed for eight days, the room was really spacious. The staff were attentive and eager to please. Nothing was too much trouble. The food was so great, we dined...there each night, even though other options were available in the area. Very homely and impressive. We would definitely recommend the Two Sawyers.More

My husband and I have often had Sunday lunch at The Two Sawyers, one of our favourite local pubs. However, when we lunched there yesterday it was clear the place had changed hands, as several pub classics like steak and kidney pie, had disappeared from...the menu, and the only Special was a fish dish which actually wasn't Special because it was already on the main menu. My husband chose roast beef, but his roast potatoes were rock hard and almost black - likewise his Yorkshire pudding. He complained to the waitress that both were inedible and she said there would be no charge for his meal. My chicken Caesar salad promised crispy bacon, Parmesan and anchovies. To my horror, the anchovies used were the white ones in vinegar, not the salted and preserved kind canned in olive oil, as they should have been. The white ones tainted the salad with a fishy flavour. There was one small piece of crispy bacon and no discernible Parmesan. On the plus side, the desserts - apple crumble and crème brûlée - were tasty and generously portioned. But we won't be returning to The Two Sawyers, sadly.More

We have loved coming to this pub for both the food and the area. The nearby walk at Pett Level didn't disappoint. However our pub lunch was very disappointing. Sausage and mash and sausage and chips in a basket. The first meal had three sausages...but the veg and mash were such tiny portions. The second meal of sausage and chips in a basket had dry overcooked crunchy chips. The sausages were all different flavours which was rather strange especially as one was chorizo flavoured! A description of the flavour sausages on the menu which are bought from the ,oval butcher would have been helpful. Priced at £12.95 & £13.50 I would expect better than the meals we received.More
