“How a pub should be”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

The long established 16th century Castle Inn in Pevensey Bay is my local for several very good reasons.
Mine hosts, Andy and Linda Skinner, run a very welcoming pub which not only serves excellently kept real ales (my favourite is Harveys Sussex best bitter) but also serves excellent locally sourced freshly cooked food.
Two open fires add to the warmth of the pub in more ways than one!
The locals are from all walks of life and all ages leading to a good mix of conversation and banter!
Free wifi is available and there is normally subdued music playing in the background.
There are no machines of any kind which adds to my enjoyment of the place.

“warm and cosy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2012

Recently visited for a group Christmas lunch, a little cramped owing to so many of us but the food was very tasty,hot and nicely presented a difficult thing to do with so many sitting down together. The pub/restaurant has a lovely warm cosy homley feeling about it and has been decorated beautifully for xmas.Can fully recommend.

“A Must for Saturday Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2012

Having just acquired a static mobile holiday home at nearby Martello Bay the Castle is situated just right. The ambiance is great, the customers on Saturdays at least, a good mix of local Seniors, younger locals and a mixed bag of visitors' The place is very clean tables well wiped down and cutlery and serviettes provided on tables.The food is coked as asked for so a little wait, which is what you expect, it is well worth the wait. The food is excellent well presented and served by very amicable staff. Although they do not have a great choice of wines those that they do have are of very good quality and the white chilled just right. My lady friend and I will continue to use the Castle for the foreseeable future and will certainly recommend it to all our friends and relatives.
Oh I nearly forgot you will not be hungry for a while after eating.
