Visited with my brother following a few miles walk, nice bright airy pub selling the local brewer, Long Man's ales. 2 on sale, the 4% Best Bitter, and the 4.2% Copper Hop, which we drank, it was in good form and was a very nice deep amber bitter! As we had a packed lunch, we didn't eat here, though the... More

The giants rest is in a lovely location close to the Cuckmere and many lovely walks. We have stayed there many times over the last few years and have recommended it in the past to others. Recently it changed management and the rooms have been updated to a slightly better standard and are very clean and comfortable. Other than that... More

My husband and I stayed here for a one night stop recently. We had the double room which was lovely and spacious enough to have a sofa and 2 chairs as well as the bed etc. There are only 2 rooms and the bathroom is shared. When we stayed we were the only occupants so the bathroom was effectively ours!... More

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.

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
