We were recommeded to eat here by a local couple. Sedlescombe is a pretty village on a busy road with a long narrow green on to which the pub borders. They have a carpark and the village carpark is located behind it or you can park on the street. It was busy and bustling when we arrived at 6.45pm, very welcoming with a very old interior and exterior with the head of QE1 swinging on the pub sign. We were welcomed by a gaggle of the pub's seven white geese which are truly free range. The Doombar was good but the côte de Rhone a bit rough. The port was excellent. We both had the magret de canard, (duck breast) with green beans, ratatouille and dauphinoise potatoes which were all cooked to perfection. We followed with a cherry créme brulée which was quite copius as was the plum and apple crumble and icecream. They also serve proper expressos. The service was a little slow so during the wait we struck up conversation with a French family (the pub being very cosmoploitan). The barstaff doubled up as waiters and were polite pleasant and helpful. We would defintely come back again.
