I stopped here for lunch with friends after visiting nearby Great Dixter House & Garden. We had a very pleasant, leisurely lunch outside in the front garden. An excellent varied menu, surprising good wine list, and wide range of beer and ale. The staff was friendly, helpful and pleasant. A fine place to stop and enjoy a pleasant Sussex village.

Two of us had lunch here on a weekday when we expected the pub to be fairly quiet. However, there were two largish parties in, but the staff coped well with the large numbers and our waiting time was minimal. I had the full rack of ribs which was very good and the other meal was the boulabaise, which was... More

Stopped off after my husband took me on a mystery tour through Kent and Sussex countryside. My husband used to frequent this pub 30 years ago. He hoped the atmosphere would be similar to then.

Visited with friends for the first time, pretty pub in beautiful location. The food was delicious I had scallops to start (perfect) and rack of lamb as a main ( this was slightly over done I prefer it a little pink). I would say that overall there is a good selection on the menu, and the standard was good. I... More

Four of us had a superb lunch at The White Dog. Two of us had the beef and stilton pie, one had scallops and one had chicken. All of the food was freshly cooked, piping hot when served and absolutely delicious, and the portions were very generous. Service was friendly, ambiance was comfortable. Really top notch all around.

Went back to white dog after about 8 years absence. Amazed to find the interior hasn't changed, very welcoming atmosphere. Easter Saturday evening very busy, but the service was good and the food outstanding with a wide range of choices. We use to come here regularly first time about 30 years ago, but only stopped because of distance from Hastings.... More

We've eaten here several times but recently it's been a bit of a disappointment as the food has been average. We stopped by for a quick lunch and tried one of their ciabattas which was just ok and the chips were too greasy. It seems the food is quite variable here now. Not sure what's going on - there's no... More

We only came across it after visiting Bateman's and went in on the off chance so really delighted with this lucky find. Menu choice is good, wll-cooked with friendly, efficient service. So don't...

Description
The White Dog Inn is a family-run country pub, serving good food and real ales. We do our best to source local, seasonal produce and have a seasonal menu, as well as specials. We offer bar, restaurant, outdoor or private dining and will do our very best to cater to our customers' needs. Children are welcome and we provide high chairs and a children's menu. Dogs are welcome in the bar area, but must be kept on a lead. If they are well behaved, we even have a tin of treats! Regular live music nights are put on and can be found on our Facebook page or website. We also host a Pizza Night on Thursdays where you can enjoy a freshly prepared pizza made in our very own pizza oven!
