Sunday Lunch was outstanding, Full credit to the kitchen and all the staff. For a country Pub in a beautiful setting on Ashdown Forest The Hatch punches way above its weight. It simply does not need to be any better than this. 10 out of 10. All the food is prepared freshly and you can tell that it actually is.... More

The publican was working alone, and was busy ... but not too busy to pay attention, to welcome us, to bring the drinks quickly, and to get our order in to the kitchen. Very friendly place, with excellent food. We were staying nearby, in a rented cottage, and the Good Pub Guide led us here. We'll be back, for sure,... More

Pretty little pub, with excellent food. Very cosy and welcoming. Would eat here again. The staff were very friendly and efficient. Great choice of food. Typical little English pub.

Having read the positive reviews, we were really looking forward to our visit to The Hatch, but were left disappointed, not by the (albeit average) food, but by the incredibly unwelcoming service that bordered on rude. We were supposed to be celebrating my mum’s birthday, but we were left to feel that we were imposing throughout our visit. Changing tables... More

We stopped here for Saturday lunch, we hadn't booked and the pub was busy, we were told there would be a 30 minute wait for food and decided to wait. Our food came out quickly in the end and was really tasty, the service was excellent, the staff were friendly and the atmosphere was good. All in all, we'd definitely... More

Nice pub with difficult parking. We were recommended by locals as "the go to pub". Arrived Saturday and greeted by the gentleman behind the bar changing the handles. His partner, a surly blonde who was more interested in eating a bag of crisps and speaking with the affluent locals than serving a customer she didn't know. Great looking pub, terrific... More

Great well kept Larkins bitter and Harveys as well. A great place to have a pint or two and also eat some first class food from a good menu. Pleasant gardens with tables to eat and drink on a sunny day. Overall a very pleasing sojourn here

Our friends took us here four years ago and again on this visit. Nice atmosphere. Good food selection and service. The servings are large.

I recently arranged to have my husbands 60th birthday dinner for 12 at the hatch. They provided a varied menu to choose from, the service was excellent and every plate went back empty! The Hatch has a lovely setting and the ambience is fantastic. We had a superb meal, superb service and superb price and every guest said they would... More
