Arrived at 8:30 pm on a Sunday with a friend to be immediately greeted by a cheering "we are closing soon". Barmaid preceded to turn down subsequent drinks orders from us and others and chucked us all out at just after 9. Nothing wrong with closing a pub if there are not enough customers but here was someone serving who... More

We were visiting the area researching our family history and found this lovely little place. Very old, very quaint building with low ceilings and open fires which gives the place an intimate, cosy atmosphere. The staff were very friendly and welcoming and the food was lovely, with a couple of vegetarian options on the menu. There isn't much parking because... More

What a lovely small Tudor pub (I think it's Tudor) perfect for a lunch air evening meal. On just a drink in the Gdn. The food is superb, approx £11-16.00 for a main meal, but worth it. Certainly will be back

Came here with a few friends and our dogs, this place welcomes dogs happily which is great! The pub has low ceilings due to being built in the 1400's but it makes it cosy and warm especially with the log burning fire (just watch your head in the toilets! Ha ha) Bar girls are polite and knowledgeable, good selection of... More

Well we visited the Ashdown Forest, place would have been great for walks with the dog but it tipped it down. So, we needed a place to go for a meal and were recommended The hatch. It was great, a warm welcome, glad we booked ahead plus an open fire and our Dog was welcomed. Food was excellent, staff were... More

The Ashdown Forestis a delightful area for walking and this cosy country pub fits just right. Good food and beer, friendly public an and staff, good home cooked food, and good beer. Cosy fire on a winters day.

Our first night out alone since having a baby.... Having just moved to the area we accidentally found this little hidden country gem & decided to try it when we had a babysitter. It's really quaint, cozy, romantic feel to it. The food was absolutely amazing... Starter to share, 2 steak mains, dessert to share, a lot of drinks.... Didn't... More
