Such friendly staff, great ales and yummy food. They dealt brilliantly with a group of 12 of us - plenty of warning about handling our food order in two halves which worked well. The menu has something for everyone. Dog friendly too. Really recommended.

Arrived to a friendly welcome in this lovely old pub. Shown to our ensuite room, which I have to confess was a disappointment. The Sir John Derring Room sounds rather grand but was in fact small and, I felt, in need of some refurbishment. We had a most enjoyable meal in the evening. The breakfast was lovely smoked haddock with... More

Booked for a Saturday night with husband , sister and her fiancé on one of our Eastbourne visits. I hadn't been here for 30+ years and they had stayed overnight a few months ago and loved it. It is a gorgeous olde worlde pub with low beams, wooden floors and a lovely cosy feel on a cold May evening. We... More

Absolutely fantastic pub/restaurant & hotel run by 2 people who clearly care. A lot. Hats off to Roland & Cate. Literally everything was as I'd hoped for - great atmosphere, great location for a walk to the sea & seven sisters, kitchen serving up proper food and plenty of it. Combine this with a pub garden to enjoy quality ales/gin/wines... More

Spent one night hear for a bit of walking and relaxation in the South Downs. Lovely Inn, with very friendly and helpful staff, loads of character and great food. Alfriston itself is a charming little village, in a great location for walkers. Not much more to say really, great stay! Would definitely recommend

Spent 2 nights here while visiting my brother who lives in Berwick, having stayed here one time previously. You can't help but think you are living in the 1800s with the creaky floorboards and the smell of old wooden beams. The Inn is well cared for, warm and friendly and the helpful bartender got the chef to make us a... More

lovely inn with good food and ale. Ignore the dust and blown light bulbs and immerse yourself in the ambiance. Staff very nice especiallyDan. The red room is most pleasant and comfy but the shower is truly awful. Nice garden and lounge to read your complimentary newspaper after brekkie. We will return but hope the resident ghost does not make... More

The room facilities are very good and there is a comfortable seating area at the foot of the stairs to resident accommodation. Dinner and wine excellent .Breakfast was relaxed and plentiful. It is in the centre of the... More

Lovely quaint, charming old Inn in a beautiful unspoilt part of Sussex. Traditional in style, it is welcoming and busy. We just stay one night at the weekend, enjoyed beautiful walks on the doorstep and some interesting shops to browse in. The food was lovely, varied menu and wine list ,and a table is reserved for guests automatically. The staff... More

We stayed at the George Inn for 3 nights whilst in Sussex celebrating our daughter's birthday. On the Saturday night 8 of us had a meal at the George and we all said how much we enjoyed it. The warmth from open fires, the wine, beer, food, presentation and service were excellent. We also had supper there with two friends... More
