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

We have just had a very enjoyable stay at this lovely hotel. Nicky and Phil are perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble. The breakfasts are one of the best we have ever had and a very enjoyable start to the day! Our room was not the largest we have stayed in, but it was nicely decorated and very... More

I had stayed in a larger hotel before, but found the Olde Forge a lot more comfortable, due in large part to the efforts of Nicky and Philip, who are always friendly and welcoming. The food was also very good, and all freshly prepared to order. I would definitely recommend this place.

Working away from home for more than a year, I've searched hard for a hotel that fits the bill for me. I've tried high end hotels with 4 stars and budget hotels but have struggled to find one that offers me what I need. In simple terms, I look for a hotel where the rooms are clean and airy, the...

We recently enjoyed a two night stay at the Olde Forge to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Nicky and Phillip made us feel very welcome. As well as the excellent food the ambience was great. A nice touch was the canapés with our pre dinner drinks. A comprehensive menu covered all tastes. We would recommend this winning combination. Hotel is well... More

We recently stayed at The Old Forge for a weeks holiday. This was our second stay and we were warmly welcomed by Philip and Nicky and shown to the same comfortable room as previously. As much as anything, we were looking forward to the attention to detail shown in the dining room and lounge (we were just made so comfortable)... More

My wife and I have just enjoyed a two-night stay at the Olde Forge. As other reviewers have stated, Nicky and Philip do their utmost to make you feel welcome and we really enjoyed the excellent food and general hospitality. Everything is done to a high standard without being pretentious or fussy and that suited us perfectly. Highly recommended!

We were a little apprehensive, but Philip and... More

If you like fantastic food, old world charm, and delightful and friendly owners, then this is the perfect place to spend a few days in the Sussex countryside. This was our second visit to the Olde Forge and this time I didn't have flu, so was able to enjoy every moment! Thank you Nikki & Phillip, we will be back!... More

We came over from Western Australia for my daughter's wedding. After a series of horrible hotel stays around the Gatwick area we moved down to Hailsham and stayed in the Old Forge Hotel for 3 nights. What a difference. The people Nikki and Phillip were very friendly and went out of there way to ensure we had everything we needed.... More
