Great pub just outside of Battle. Came with a large group of friends for pint later in the evening and received wonderful service and a very welcoming atmosphere even though we weren't regulars. Impressive gin selection; beers and ales above average.

It appears there is still no website. Their tel: No is 01424 772717 but they do not open until just after five pm when not busy as far as I know. Persevere, it is one not to miss. The address is North trade road Battle.
