We have been coming here on our anniversary for 4 years as I met my partner here and it has great sentimental value for us. I'm afraid the food has gone downhill a bit, the first couple of years it was excellent and I was...More

Went there with the family for Sunday Lunch. Very good value for money. Nice atmosphere. We sat in the conservatory. As a large group they never rushed us. Will be going back there again with friends.

A traditional British pub serving a large home made menu, including daily specials and everything from a quick bite to eat to more substantial main course. A great selection of local real ales are available and have won us a place in CAMRA's Real Ale Guide 2012. Venture beyond the bar to our conservatory restaurant, looking out over our large terrace and garden where you can eat,drink and enjoy the unpredictable, yet wonderful Eastbourne sunshine.
