“Absolutely Delicious Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 29, 2013

We went for a dog walk by the sea at Bexhill then we needed to eat somewhere that also welcomed dogs. This was our first time. Very welcoming staff and the food....well that really was such a yummy pleasant surprise! It was delicious! If you like seafood and garlic, YOU MUST try the Seafood Stew - very generous portion and so so tasty, consisting of clams, mussels, prawns, scallop and cod, all in a beautifully spiced bisque with baby okra. My hubby had the pulled chicken and ham pie, equally as delicious. We went on Sunday and at at 4 in the afternoon - so good to have food served all day. Will definitely go there again!

“Pleasantly average.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

We wanted to try out their Sunday roast and ordered the roast beef. The rib of beef was tasty and tender and the fresh vegetables (carrots, cauliflower & broccoli) which were presented separately, were hot and not overcooked. Regretably, in common with other local restaurants, the Yorkshire pudding was uninspiring and bland - probably not home made from scratch. Good selection of wines. Service was friendly and efficient. We felt that the meal was a little overpriced at £10.95.
Will we return? We would like to sample some of their other dishes and/or the 'specials', so yes.
In order to be awarded 5 stars, in our view any establishment must be perfect in every way, so we are surprised at some of the other reviews.
We would have given 4 stars but for the Yorkshire pud.

Thank you for your comments regarding your recent visit with us. I am sorry to hear that our Yorkshire Pudding was uninspiring and bland as well as finding our price for Roast Beef was a little overpriced at £10.95. I wish that I was made aware of your discontent and would have reassured you that in particular our Yorkshire Pudding is 100% homemade and simply made with milk, flour, egg and just a pinch of salt. Our Yorkshire Pudding is not meant to be inspiring as it is merely an accompaniment to the Roast Sussex Rib of Beef. Our prices for Roast Beef may seem a little steep but they are 100% British and are reared here in Sussex. We try wherever possible source our suppliers locally to support local community and cook our food in house. The roast selection we served and priced, do include everything in one price from the meat, the roast potatoes, the vegetables, the gravy and the sauces. In regard to us being awarded 5 stars, people are entitled to their own opinions. I am glad that despite the issues raised above you are looking to visit us again. I would be very pleased to meet you so that I may be able to ensure your visit is a pleasant one.

“Thoroughly enjoyable lunch.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have just returned from lunch at the Denbigh. Having just moved to Bexhill we took a chance based on reading previous reviews. We found a nice welcome when we walked in, very attentive staff and magnificent food. There were four of us (our daughter and son in law were visiting us) and we all ordered different meals from a superb varied menu which makes timing difficult however we were all served simultaneously. The taste and quality of each meal was superb and the prices were very reasonable. We were so pleased that we have booked to return with two friends in a couple of days time.

“A Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

This is just a local pub in a residential area, but the restaurant is worthy of a detour.

Good choice on the menu, fresh ingredients and home cooking.

Price is reasonable and ambience is good with a hardcore of locals as well as visitors who are made to feel welcome
