I have visited the restaurant a few times, always on a Saturday lunchtime. The service is good and the food is good. It always surprises me how quite the restaurant is. Service is not quick, but if you want fast food, go up the road to the Wimpy! Service has always been welcoming and the prices are fair. I will... More

We were really impressed by the value of the roast dinner which was delicious - we had beef and pork between us which had huge Yorkshire puddings. Only complaint was the lack of staff and the poor waitress was rushed off her feet. Otherwise nice setting and various deals on throughout the week. Would recommend and return.

Called here on the way from Newhaven. Good parking spaces,pubs a bit scruffy on the outside,,not to smart on the inside either. But the food was ok. If the whole place had been more tidy ,I would have scored a 4 .

Just moved to peacehaven from Brighton so trying to find nice places to go for lunch, drinks etc. Didn't like this pub much at all. We ordered chicken burgers and chips, wasn't very nice - I could have cooked better at home! The place is very dated and needs some modernising. The menus look crap. And table decor is poor....

Four of us went to this pub (The Telscombe Tavern) for a meal for the first time and were very disappointed overall. We were greeted and shown our table by friendly staff, drinks arrived and food orders taken. The four starters were very good, and then began the long wait for our main meals. During this waiting period no staff... More

Visited the Tavern for a few drinks with friends and the pub had a welcoming atmosphere and friendly staff. The pub didn't appear to be part of a chain and had a more typical English pub feel. A good variation of drinks to choose from with a number of ales, lagers and gins on offer.

This pub is surprisingly big and has a nice feel to it. the staff are nice and the food is ok. unfortunately, I had to rush off before my food had arrived and the management was ok for cancelling my meal for this urgent request. just shows flexibilty and warm.
