Great way to spend two days getting over jet lag at Tiger Inn. Elizabeth room was lovely and comfortable -- and a complete breakfast included with our stay! Pub was lively during the evening with very attentive service (but had to add lots of salt to the soup to make it taste right).

We ate here in 2015 and returned again at lunch time on our recent visit to Sussex. We had a very friendly welcome and loved the fish and chips. Our friend had the seafood risotto and enjoyed it very much. We love the local beer... You must try the Beachy Head Ale supplied from a small local brewery. All in... More

Went today for Sunday lunch, booked for 1.30. Place looked busy but we weren't told there was a wait when we ordered our food. It took 45 minutes to arrive but was tasty when it came out. Ordered desert as it's my favourite and it came out cold. Seems a lot of people were unhappy and our overall experience was... More

Tucked away off the main road beside an idyllic village green, this is an attractive old pub with good food, excellent local beers (try the Legless Rambler) and very friendly service. Perfect to sit outside on a sunny day and survey the archetypally English scene. Oh, and off to the right is the cottage where Sherlock Holmes lived out his... More

Glorious sunny Saturday lunchtime - what better place to sit than outside the Tiger pub with a pint of Long Man Beer and enjoy a delicious salmon salad. Even better if you have walked beforehand but in this case I was walking afterwards.

I am surprised previous scores are so low. This is a proper pub with a good atmosphere in a great setting. Service is good. The youngish girls that work here are friendly and unlike other places more interested in the customers than their mobile phones. I have had a couple of meals and it is good value for money pub...

We all (four of us) ordered their homemade burgers, and wow! were they excellent!! I can honestly say they were the best homemade burgers we... More

We had lunch here on a sunny Sunday. There are lots of tables outside, so a lot of people ordered lunch at the same time, and we had to wait for about an hour for the lunch to come. However the staff were up front about how long it would take, and when our Roast Lamb came it was definitely... More

Simple food, great beer, five luxury bedrooms and a warm welcome. That’s what you can expect at the Tiger Inn. Just off the idyllic village green in sleepy East Dean, the Tiger Inn is a quintessentially English pub.
