East Sussex Restaurants

  • Great pub meals in a garden setting

    On our recent visit to East Sussex with friends we decided to return to a pub that had served us well for lunch many years before. That’s always a risk, as places don’t always stay the same, but on this occasion the gamble certainly paid off – if anything it was better than before. Certainly the menu had expanded and more elaborate dishes had been...

  • Great value Chinese

    If it’s a Sunday and you’re looking for a bargain meal in Hastings, you could do a lot worse than give the Double Dragon a try. OK, it’s hardly your typical English Sunday lunch, but it’s a tasty alternative at a very reasonable price, especially if you have a big appetite. The deal is “all you can eat” for £13.50, but unlike many such deals this...

  • Great pub fare

    A sunny day in April found us looking for a pub with a garden for lunch with our friends, and when we came across the Queen’s Head in Sedlescombe it seemed to be just what we were looking for – not too busy or too quiet, with plenty of tables dotted around the large garden, and a tempting menu on offer. As we were anticipating a full dinner in the...

  • What a gem of a find

    We came here a few years back and wished we had not, it was dire!On the way home from a tiring visit to Seven Sisters where walking and playing with George in the freezing blustery winds we had built up quite an appetite, we were running out of options for our Sunday lunch when we decided to have a look and see if this place had made any...

  • Very Good Food At Reasonable Prices

    A very nice pub/restaurant serving very good food and some very nice real ales. The food is reasonably priced and the portions are good, especially the whitebait! The interior of the pub is quite small and delightfully traditional, there is a conservatory with tables laid up for food and then there is the large garden with a kids climbing...

  • Lunch with a view

    I’ve described the beautiful gardens at Pashley Manor elsewhere on this page, and they are also a good place to go if you’re looking for a good home-cooked lunch in a pretty and quintessentially English setting. Walk up the grassy slope above the lake at the end of your walk round the gardens, or walk round the side of the house on arrival, and...

  • Sunday morning coffee

    This is a lovely place for a lazy Sunday morning coffee. There are a few tables outside for sunny days, and some inside for when the weather is less good. The location at the end of Battle High Street in front of the Abbey can’t be beaten! There is a good selection of different coffees – all the usual ones plus flavoured lattes (e.g. hazelnut and...

  • A new restaurant in Battle

    We tried out this new restaurant with our friends recently. It only opened a couple of months ago, and if our experience is anything to go by, it deserves to be a success. The service is friendly, the decor very restful and attractive, the tables nicely spaced in a series of small rooms, and the overall ambiance great. The wine we drank was...

  • Windmill Hill

    The Horseshoe Inn is somewhere I had wanted to try out for a long time and a birthday treat seemed like the ideal occasion to book a table!It is a big friendly pub/restaurant/hotel in the lovely setting of Windmill Hill with plenty of car parking! When we arrived it seemed quite empty but I guess thats because it was still early and lots of people...

  • Tea and Scones (rhymes with phones btw)

    Right in the middle of the Seven Sisters Country Park is the delightful Exceat Farmhouse - serving excellent home made fayre from 10 in the morning til late afternoon to weary travellers, bikers, walkers and hikers. We had tea a scones for two people for just £5. It is extremely popular and busy and people are happy to share tables with strangers -...

  • Typical Village Pub

    This is the interior of the Giant's Rest, a lovely pub *campaigning for real food* in the heart of the East Sussex countryside. It is very popular because the food is so good. I'm not sure how many of the clientelle were *locals* though, I think people come from far and wide to eat here.There are little wooden puzzles on each table for you to...

  • Campaigning for Real Food!!

    In the tiny picturesque village of Wilmington which sits at the bottom of the South Downs and the Long Man, there is a wonderful pub serving the best food in the area. It is run by Adrian and Rebecca Hillman and it is VERY popular. It has HUGE variety of dishes available and a varied selection for vegetarians (hooray!!!). When we arrived all tables...

  • Ninfield Nosh

    This is a nice pub in Ninfield, East Sussex. It is also a Brewers Fayre restaurant with a lovely garden. It has plenty of parking (including several bays for disabled vehicles), loo facilities for disabled customers and baby changing facilities too. Not bad for a small pub in the countryside. So... it goes like this (and this is pretty standard...

  • Excellent portions.

    This restaurant in the centre of Rye is very good value for money. The portions were large and very fresh. The restaurant was spotlessly clean and was large. Only had chips here but the guys next to me had the fish and the portions looked good. the chips were very fresh and were real chips, not french fries.

  • Home made cakes and scones...Mmmm

    The owners of this lovely little tearoom have been here for years. The cakes and scones are all home made and the tea is not out of tea bags, it's proper leaves!! The staff are attentive and the place is clean and obviously loved. It has been in many a top newspaper as one of he best in England. The apple and sultana cake was wonderful. It was...

  • Fish, fish and more fish (Alfriston)

    Part of the local pub - dark panelled wood surrounds, big open log fire in the public bar (you can eat here too but the menu is more limited than the restaurant part), a section of which is the restaurant. Cozy is an understatement.Its also a hotel (see separate tip) The restaurant is renowned for its fish, and so plenty of fresh water and...
