Food was adequate. Managers needs to get some help with his attitude.Would not return again. Got bullish when questioned over ales and when tried to have a joke took completely the opposite way. With his attitude would not return again. Your meant to make people feel welcome to your establishment.

Living in London, we're used to everything being very pricey.....very refreshing then, to find this place where you can get a round of 6 drinks (pints and g&t's) for £20!! Super cheap!! The food is standard pub grub... More

I was told about this pub and called in for a pint. Looks very good from the outside and even better inside. They had a good selection of real ale plus the usual lager and cider. Prices were about the same as other pubs in the area. Had a good old fashioned pub atmosphere. I will certainly call again when... More

Visited this place on the 01/02/17 as we were staying a few days in Eastbourne. We ordered Chilli with rice and tortillas along with a medium rump steak and jacket potatoe.
