We had a pub lunch at the Brown Trout yesterday, a pub we have been going to on and off for years. The food and drink were both fine, but the lady serving the food really let it down. As she served, she said what was on each plate and not a word more. There was no smile, no please... More

We visited here for Sunday lunch for my mothers birthday, we found the decor to be very good, and the Carvery was a good & honest roast dinner and we all went away with our bellies full. Unfortunately the service provided by the two more mature ladies was grumpy and not at all inviting we felt like a burden to... More

Dropped in as passing and was delighted with the food on offer and the way this country pub is now. Food, service and ambience was all good and value for money superb. Thank you.

Good traditional decor. This came highly recommended by my friend whose birthday is today (30th Oct) - when 6 of us visited for lunch. Really impressed by the way the carvery was kept well-stocked, thereby keeping the queue moving and meaning that the meat was tender and the veggies fresh and hot. Down to that 'magic ingredient' - ENOUGH STAFF!!... More

Husband had heard lots of rave reviews about the pub so booked us in for a lunch treat for my birthday. Was picked up by a chauffeur and driven from Hastings to Lamberhurst, having no idea where we were heading. Lovely setting, and looking pub. It wasn't what we expected, and had more of a typical basic pub menu than... More

Partner was very happy with his liver & onions. Turkey pie just ok. Home made chips were nice -not frozen ones. Far too much gravy on meals , a jug would be better so you could choose the amount required. Desert was supposed to be mixed berry crumble but all we seemed to find was apple & the crumble was...

One of those pubs that used to be really good but seems now to suffer from fatigue. The last two times I have been there have been disappointing, with mediocre food, lacklustre service and prices creeping up

Great atmosphere, friendly service and excellent food. Was very quiet when I went in but I would imagine it could get quite busy. I sat in the pub but the restaurant area looks very nice.

Thank Annette H
