The Roebuck Inn in Laughton (not to be confused with the Roebuck Hotel in Forest Row!) is currently closed, and undergoing extensive refurbishment under new ownership. This pub with letting rooms is set to re-open in Spring 2014.

A pub/inn located in rural countryside near to the sea. My husband and I stayed here one night in readiness the next morning to catch a ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe. Our arrival was delayed due to being diverted off the M40 and road works on the M25. We phoned ahead and they were very accommodating and extremely friendly. Our... More

Great B and B recommend to all people heading to or through the Lewes or Brighton area. Does what it says on the tin and more. Why the need to rewrite war and peace. Its tough out there for small business estabs.

I booked this hotel for a weekend trip to visit family. We arrived on the Saturday afternoon and were glad of the 2pm checkin time so that we could have a nap after quite an exhausting drive. I had booked by phone after reading several reviews that mentioned problems with online bookings being lost. The owner booked us in very... More

Although the Roebuck Inn is very easy to find, my stay did not get off to a great start because they weren't expecting me. I'd booked and paid via Expedia and when I showed the staff my booking confirmation they said they hadn't received an email about it, and despite their best efforts in the ensuing 15 minutes, they were...

We spent a couple of nights here, and although the pub is located on a fairly busy road, the rooms are set back behind the pub so there is no noise disturbance at all and you can park your car near the room. Once checked in, you have your own key and can come and go as you please. The... More

The two points given are for the comfortable bed and the good breakfast. Small room, looked a little like a converted garage inside. Bed shorter than average, not good for tall persons. Wardrobe is less than half the recommended depth for hanging clothes in so can not be used, you either use the shower to hang them or live out... More

I recently stayed at The Roebuck Inn for 2 nights. The staff were all very welcoming, friendly and helpful. The access to the rooms was separate to the pub, so you could come and go as you please. The rooms were clean and functional and even though it is located at the roadside there was very little traffic and i... More

We've stopped at this Inn many times when travelling either to the South Coast or the Sussex countryside (which we do several times a year). The food is great - especially the burgers which are home made and cooked to order. The prices are reasonable but you can expect a bit of a wait to be served as the bar/restaurant... More
