Phillip and Nicky who own the hotel are a friendly and personable couple who are more than happy to assist any guests with directions and recommendations of local events and places of interest. Some visitors may use this type of hotel purely as a bed and breakfast arrangement. However I would also suggest sampling the evening food at the hotel... More

Our family (including 2 x 6 years olds) stayed at The Old Forge for 3 days whilst having a holiday in the area. The owners Nicky and Philip were extremely accomodating and friendly. We chose our meals in advance, which meant no waiting around for our food to be cooked(never good when you have a hungry family) !! The food... More

I had dinner in the hotel on the first evening - tasty Thai prawns and Sea Bass cooked to perfection with nice crunchy vegetables and a lovely bottle from their more extensive than I expected wine-list.

After we were let down on accommodation elsewhere late in the evening we stumbled across The Olde Forge en route to the nearby Travelodge. We were so glad we did. We were warmly welcomed by Philip to our clean and comfortable room. Breakfast the next morning was amazing - one of the best English breakfasts I've had. Regrettably we didn't... More

Celebrating a birthday at The Olde Forge was an absolute delight. Philip and Nicky were attentive and friendly, and to top it off the food was superb. No exaggeration- every plate on our table was clear at the end of the meal! Easily the best food in Hailsham and my husband and I will definitely be going back for dinner... More
