Really enjoyed having lunch here. Made to feel very welcome by a really polite and tentative young lady. The food was wonderful and lots of it. A superb visit, look forward to going back.

A charming country pub in the beautiful village of Rushlake Green, I 've passed through this village several times during work always got that wow factor, it's hidden away off the main roads well worth a little exploring in the heart of East Sussex. Not...More

I went with a friend who relished their whitebait and rosemary fries - I had what they describe as the best ploughmans in the Country. I have not tried them al but have to say mine was truly exceptional and probably worthy of the boast.
