We popped into this pub on our way back from a day's visit to Hastings and Rye for dinner before returning to our nearby hotel. Before ordering I asked if it was possible to have chips with the pie of the day and was reassured...More

We're terribly sorry that you had such a terrible experience in our terrible pub. Indeed, one cannot imagine anything more terrible than getting mash instead of chips. Mea culpa. As the terrible landlord with terrible control over the terrible chefs I hold my hand up....More

We popped in for a quick lunch. The sausage sandwich, on it's arrival looked great with lovely presentation. However, as my partner bit into it, he nearly broke a tooth, as the sausage had been sliced lengthwise before being microwaved to a rock solid lump....More

In the middle of an extremely busy session we can occasionally slip up. At least your partner told us quickly that he was unhappy with his original sandwich - we didn't disagree and we replaced it as quickly as we could without fuss. As you...More

A great group of staff on Sunday made this pub a very good place for lunch. Unpretentious, even slightly shabby and a rather scruffy garden. But, all the better for not being turned into another Sussex trendy gastro pub. Good choice of beers from all...More

Thank you for your comments, although we might have preferred "proper pub" to "shabby" and "rustic" to "scruffy" (it is, after all, now autumn!). Anyway, despite the adjectives which could equally have been used in a "terrible" review you clearly appreciated what we try to...More

Took my in laws here last month as had read the numerous recommendations on here & it's not that far away. The menu has the usual pub fare, but then there was also ostrich burger & kangaroo which showed maybe this could be an interesting...More

Went to a famous pub in Fletching - name I will not mention - looking for a sandwich lunch whilst in the area. Left there and reserved a table by phone at The Laughing Fish as being ideally located. Won't go into too much detail...More

Thank you for your review. Over the years we've played around with different suppliers for our bread products, but have not been able to find any as good as the Jack and Jill Bakery in Ringmer, which is where we source our "Norfolk Crunch" granary,...More

Thank you very much for your review - our pies are always popular, and its interesting how many potential customers enquire about the "construction" of them before ordering. It's quite clear that the "dish of meat with a puff pastry lid" is not good enough...More
