We enjoyed our visit to the pub with friends and our children. The service was very friendly and the food was of a high quality. My wife had the Rabbit Pie which was excellent and the Sunday roast was most enjoyed by adults and children. Non meat eaters are well catered for also. A non pretentious welcoming pub atmosphere in... More

Decided to try out the giants rest as I was staying across the road ( and the hotels set menu was a little steep for me). Was hoping for a quiet pint and a nice dinner and what I got was a lovely pint and an even better dinner. If you are passing stop!!! You will not be disappointed.

After driving through countryside, we stopped in for a bite to eat and had a wonderful lunch. The great experience started with help to put a ramp down to push a wheelchair into the restaurant. The three of us shared the prawn crab scallop cassoulet - it grew on me and I loved it, while it was love at first... More

This is a great find if you're looking for some warming pub food in a nice atmosphere. The food is all home cooked and tastes brilliant - a much higher standard than most pub food. There is an open fireplace which is a favourite with the dogs and the staff are attentive and friendly. Always our East Sussex pub go-to!

I made a reservation for 14 at very short notice, Kathy and Chris were only too happy to accommodate us. The food was fresh and vibrant and reasonably priced, and the overall service was outstanding. I would not hesitate to recommend this pub for dining

Wonderful food, locally sourced meats, beer and ciders. Not much room inside to move about in a wheelchair, great spot for lunch.

I had not eaten here for at least 10 yrs. Pleased to have chosen to eat here this lunch time Sunday 27.11.16. My two friends were delighted too. They both had rabbit pie which they said was delicious. I enjoyed a sweet Potato curry with rice and a Poppadom. The food was piping hot and obviously homemade. They even had... More

Have been meaning to stop in here for some time. We were out on our way elsewhere and decided to stop for a drink. The bar staff were friendly and helpful. I chose an elderflower cider and my husband a pint of Long Blonde from the local brewery. Both very good and well kept. We sat outside in the sunshine,... More
