A charming country inn cocooned between Cuckmere and Alfriston with fine views, a warm welcome is extended by the landlord and his friendly staff. This is a no-nonsense pub serving quality, well-prepared fresh food and in addition to the ubiquitous lagers, also on offer are a good selection of cask ales, notably some very acceptable light, summer ones from the Long Man Brewery which you're allowed to sample before making your final choice! To start, I went for the hot smoked trout fillets with a horseradish garnish whilst my wife opted for the slightly unusual goat's cheese boules. From a fine choice of mains, including steaks, guinea fowl supreme and 'fish of the day' (gilt headed bream) we then went on to rump of Sussex lamb which was excellent, served the rare side of pink on a bed of wilted spinach, with crushed new potatoes and beetroot cubes in a sweet, red wine jus. Delicious.To follow I chose the Limoncello and Cointreau-drizzled lemon sponge with sorbet; my wife had the chocolate brownie, both home-made and to die for. A very pleasant evening indeed, only wish we lived a bit closer. Highly recommended.
