We called in here on the final stretch of a long walk and were met by roaring fire and great drinks. We were delighted that we were booked in that same evening for dinner as it was packed and everyone eating seemed to be enjoying...More

Set in the heart of the picturesque, quiet and sleepy village of East Dean, the Tiger Inn is a superb 16th century pub to stop off at - particularly after a vigorous walk from Eastbourne along Seven Sisters passing Beachy Head and Burling Gap, as...More

We both enjoyed fresh tuna salad from the specials board. It was cooked to perfection. The cheerful waitress served us efficiently and the setting on the green was lovely. Thank you for a very enjoyable lunch.

East Dean is a pretty area close to Birling Gap where many walkers and hikers stop for a rest. We were passing and stumbled upon the Tiger Inn, a quaint looking old pub by the village green. Oh dear! The food was very average. Cold,...More

Popped in here after a bracing walk on the cliffs. Lovely area outside, obviously. Inside decor could be improved. We hadn't read the reviews before booking a table, but now wish we had. Other reviewers are correct; the food is below average (at best). 40...More

It is some time since we went to The Tiger. It looks the same but it isn't a patch on what it was. Living on its reputation? We are not big drinkers and part of our order was a still and a sparkling water. Identical...More

Simple food, great beer, five luxury bedrooms and a warm welcome. That’s what you can expect at the Tiger Inn. Just off the idyllic village green in sleepy East Dean, the Tiger Inn is a quintessentially English pub.
