It was a tall order! I phoned in advance to ask if they could accommodate a family birthday party of nine for lunch....my mother and her sister being in their nineties and only able to eat small portions, four of us restricted to a gluten free diet and a dog. I was assured that none of this posed any problem... More

This is a great pub. Delicious lunch in the middle of a 15 mile hike. Warm and friendly. Fine pint of beer. Wonderful service. The barman/waiter was lovely. The second time I've been and it's definately a recommendation.

Went to have lunch with some friends, we all ordered food and drink. The staff were very pleasant and welcoming to their characterful pub. The building is what you would expect an old Sussex pub to be, and is Dog friendly. The food was good, but overpriced, there were No chips due to a Gas problem. That meant you were... More

We holiday in Eastbourne every year but had not discovered this hidden gem at Litlington until we were recommended by a friend. We went on a busy Friday lunch and sat in the Snug as we had our dog with us and didn't want him to disturb other diners. We had the linguini with mussels and prawns in a chilli... More

The food in this pub was very good, the atmosphere cosy and the staff were very good and couldn't do enough for you. We will certainly be visiting this place more often.

This pub is near to my parents and I try to visit it when I can as it is everything a lovely pub should be, superb location, food, drink, staff and atmosphere. I recently wanted to have my birthday meal there and drove down from Hertfordshire to have lunch with friends and then drove back again. It's a very special... More

Planned to eat here on a recommendation & very grateful on both counts. Food was wonderful. Good selection of "beers". Service excellent. Staff friendly & helpful. You could not have asked for more.
