Visited here early Friday evening. Very crowded and difficult to get to the bar. Good for business but not for customers, like me, who had been poured a glass of wine which tasted stale, vinegary and past it's best. Finally asked a waitress to help who took it back and returned with it saying the manager said the bottle had...

Ate there the first night but the lamb/belly pork and potatoes were served cold - reheating was offered but the meat would not have been tender....

We had to reschedule our stay due to illness and Philip could not have been more understanding and accommodating in moving our reservation at short notice. When we finally visited The Bull last weekend, we were really impressed with the friendliness of the staff, the cleanliness and presentation of our modern room, our delicious evening meal and breakfast the next...

Only stayed one night but would definitely go back again and explore the South Downs more. On arrival the staff were so friendly, helpful and professional. Room was a good size, nice decor. A little noisy at it is an old building, but this is the only down side. Food and drink selection very good, cozy atmosphere.

Following a trip to Ridgeview Wine Estate we went to The Bull for lunch. Great selection of beers and wines. Lovely friendly staff, we were served attentively. Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their lunch; burgers, steak, fish and chips where all freshly made from quality ingredients. A particular highlight for me was the trio of Rhubarb desert. We will visit again. Only...

The place is listed on hotels.com as being at The Green Newick Lewes Bear in mind it takes more than a quarter of an hour to DRIVE to Lewes, let alone WALK (nearly 3 hours, according to GoogleMaps). So it's a bit of a Ryanair locationing. That said, it worked out quite a good option for me visiting Brighton, avec...

I love this little pub very sweet and the food is fab Staff are really friendly and there's plenty of parking outside. Not too expensive and definitely worth every penny that you pay. It has such a cosy and warm vibe

We popped in after work on for a quick glass of wine and a pint of Bedlam beer, ended up staying for dinner. The Pinot Noir was fantastic and the beer brilliant. As for the food, even better, if not a bit pricey-but it always has been, even before it won The Best Pub in Great Britain Award last year....
