Everything you want in a modern English pub is here in Pevensey...a lovely welcome a nice selection of ales and food, but the staff are just delightful...yes some could say it's a wee bit pricey, but it is truly worthwhile...the quality and portions are very good...lovely beer garden to boot...

We stopped in here for lunch after visiting Battle Abbey Battlefield and before visiting Pevensey Castle. The food is lovely and not overly priced, its very cosy too. I imagine it would get very busy in peak season.

We were recommended to come to this pub by our B@B hosts in Pevensey. We walked down through the village and castle grounds to get to it which was quite spooky by torchlight! The menu was not extensive but we enjoyed our meal and a very good bottle of red wine, and the waitress/barmaid was friendly, as were a couple... More

Just popped out for a lunch time snack! Our Daughter passed here last week and commented on how busy it was so we thought we would give it a try. Excellent. We will visit again.
