Don't think a visit to the Ram is about comparisons with slick mass market pubs that's not why local people go there. The Ram is meant to be a genuine local pub selling local beers, and using local produce, with the benefit of a great off the beaten track location. The service is good, being friendly and effective, but it's...

We went to The Ram for a rare break from the kids for my partners birthday. I had tried to book Wingrove House in Alfriston where he had had a fabulous break before, but it was booked. I booked the 'best room' which looked lovely and cost £125 which is not cheap. I also booked a table for dinner. We...

Early evening meal for two, midweek, one starter - the goats cheese which was very good, olives which werent to our taste (sort of a mish mash of olives, tomato, artichoke) and then we each had a aged steak which tasted very good but as it wasnt that thick it was difficult to cook as we wanted them (medium rare)...

We stayed for two nights over the Easter weekend. We arrived slightly early on our first day, we asked to check in. There was NO flexibility on accessing the room early and the staff weren't even prepared to check if the room was ready. We decided to have lunch and wait for our room to become ready - only to...

We booked a table for 7 several weeks prior to Easter day. On arrival our reception was very cool and we were told that we would be sitting on two tables. The manager inferred that my daughter had made a late booking which was not the case. He left us standing in the dining room and the young waitress was...

Went here with children (ages 2 to 10) and grandparents (age not disclosed!!). Beautiful setting with lovely pub to have lunch. The food ordered was really nice. The reason for not giving it five out of five was because the prices were a little on the high side and there wasn't a huge choice of dishes (particularly for the kids)....

We stopped off at The Ram Inn for a family lunch with two under 10s. There was a lengthy wait for a children's menu and then my wife's chips were cold and had to be returned. I went for ploughman's and surprisingly this appeared ten minutes after every other plate...despite the fact none of it needed cooking. The food was...

Dined here this evening as a last minute meal, and was not disappointed. The restaurant is set out with several different rooms and places you can tuck yourself away in. We opted for the main dining room by the bar. All the waiting staff were friendly and attentive with a nice selection on the menu, two of us opted for...

I have been going to The Ram for years, with all its ups and downs and changes. In the last 2 weeks I have been twice, each time enjoying being there, sitting in the sun, and the staff were friendly, but the meals were disappointing. Firstly, the choices are odd, as if they are trying too hard. There are ploughmans,...

After a fantastic, sunny walk up to Firle Beacon and around Charleston we decided to have lunch at the Ram Inn (well we were parked just behind the pub so why not?!) Once the order was taken we had a little wait before the food arrived but no problem because we were sitting outside in the sunshine with our drinks!...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Ram Inn has been at the heart of a vibrant farming community for over five hundred years. A wonderful village local, set in Firle, at the foot of the Downs and in the South Downs National Park. The rambling old building has three main bar areas, each with its own open fire lit every day between October and April. At the bar you will find artists, walkers, writers, farmers, farriers and vicars, and the garden is usually full of families and children of all ages. Now known for really good local food as well as locally produced cask ales, we also have four beautiful bedrooms and offer bed & breakfast all year round. ... more   less
