We dropped in for a pint of Harveys at lunchtime on Boxing Day. Nice beer and smiley, helpful staff. Just the sort of pub I wish I had near home as my local. We didn't eat, as we'd already done so in town, but I must say the food we saw coming out of the kitchen looked good, and the... More

We were a party of 13, and had pre booked the Christmas meal. Three courses for £22.95 which included tea or coffee and mince pies, The food was mediocre. I Am no great cook but seriously could have cooked a much tastier meal myself. I had the smoked salmon and prawn with a salad garnish for starter on a very... More

Very strange menu rather diverse,nothing on starters that we would choose,settled on the crispy belly pork but it was anything other than crisp, very rubbery verging on tough,vegetables not very inspiring red cabbage spinach and carrots, very school dinnerish. Have been regulars at... More

I went to Eastbourne for a Reunion and stayed at Lamb. It is such a lovely place these days. It is very old with wonderful beams and The Manager and Staff are very helpful and welcoming. We stayed in a beautifully decorated room with an ensuite bathroom which was clean and comfortable and quiet. In the morning we were greeted... More

I visited today with my parter and father for Sunday lunch. The decor and feel of the place is great, really sets the atmosphere for a Sunday roast. We where seated straight away on arrival and our drink orders taken. We waited a good 10 15 minutes for our drinks. Although not too long, the resturant wasn't busy at all.... More

The menu is varied and we had the steak pie and lamb shoulder for mains. The wine list was good and we chose a Rioja which was delightful. Loved the cellar tour and friendly staff, breakfast...

We have been looking forward to eating here for some time and a nice wet Bank Holiday Monday seemed like the perfect time. The Lamb Inn is the oldest pub in Eastbourne, so I am led to believe, so, for that alone, it is worth a visit. The pub does have oodles of old world charm and the staff are... More
