I am confused about the sausages as I make them personally. There is usually about 150 in a batch. The meat goes through the mincer twice with all the seasoning etc. It's impossible for them to be...More
Some excellent local beers on tap. We weren't there for food but the pies looked good. The pub is directly opposite Pevensey Castle so it is very handy for getting warm after a somewhat breezy walk round the castle.
