Ate at Giant Rest on earlier in the week and had a pleasant meal but nothing really special and I cant say that we were made to feel particularly welcome. The games on the tables are good fun and the location is nice.

Lunch in deepest Wilmington, near the famous Long Man, on a nice sunny Sunday so we took our dog knowing he would be allowed in. But in the eventthere were too many others plus small childs for peace of mind (he's a feisty terrier, you know). So he was left in the car but, luckily, ordering and service was quite... More

We ate here following a visit to the zoo with our daughter. The barmaid was really unhelpful and very unhappy. The food redeemed our experience though as it was excellent. Would recommend food but not service.

I always enjoy a trip to the Giant's Rest. It has changed hands a few times over the years, but I can say that it is in good hands again. The food is consistently good, the service friendly, and the local beers excellent.

Good quality pub food. Very cosy and good atmosphere, bonus as they allow dogs. Went as quite a large group and had no issues in having to wait too long for food. Did not stay here the night so can't comment on B&B side, however it is quite close to a main road.

Had another good meal, very fresh fish, quick very friendly service, very good portions of local fresh veg, Great to be able to walk to your local and meet friends, not even been there a year yet, and managed to get over the inevitable teething problems when taking over a business. Only had a short time to eat as had... More

I had the pleasure of staying here for two nights 2nd & 3rd July. My twin room was far bigger than you would expect, complete with coffee table and three easy chairs. The bathroom, which was across the landing had both a separate shower as well as a very welcoming bath. All very clean. The beer from the local Long... More

A large group of friends/family went here today for lunch. It was very pleasant. The staff were friendly, the food was very good and the surroundings (both inside the pub and outside) were nice. We hope to return in the future... Also the price of the dishes were goof value for money.

The reason I chose this place to stay was initially the premium cost that the premier inn ( the purple palace) about 1 mile away wanted to charge for a night, £75.00. So I did a local search for bed and breakfast on google maps! I called the Giants rest, near Polegate, spoke to a lovely lady whom offered me... More

Had lunch here after an energetic walk on the Downs. Very good service, interesting choice of food from a vast menu, which was very good. Well up to their usual standard of food and service with a lovely log fire to welcome us. There are wooden puzzles on all the tables to keep you occupied whilst you wait for your... More
