Decided to stop off for a Sunday lunch and was not disappointed. We were very lucky to get a table as it was very busy. We did not have to wait long to be served at the bar and when we found a table, we also did not have to wait long at all for our food. The roast dinner... More

With a plentiful selection of refreshments on tap, in fridges and coming out of the kitchen you can't go past this place. Look out for the guest Craft Ales! The atmosphere is enjoyable and the staff are terrific.

I come into the pub 1 or 2 times a week and each time I do I really, really enjoy it! The staff seem friendly, the drinks are good, and the food is out of this world! I would certainly recommend to anywhere looking for something that's a little different - to go somewhere and have the staff remember you... More

Ok, I know it's a bit excessive but the lovely double burger here was delightful. Nice chips to go with it and tasty pure beef patties. I enjoyed 1.5 of them. My dog insisted on woofing the rest down. The Cuckfield is great on a Sunday, especially when it's a little quieter in the evening. Staff unfailingly nice. :-)

What can I say, visited the cuckfield today with my nephew for one of the worst experiences I've ever had. We were waiting for the rest of our party to arrive when I went to order drinks for us, there was no pineapple juice so we opted for apple juice with lemonade, the bartender then filled two glasses in front...

After what can only be described as a disastrous Sunday lunch at the end of September, my friends and I ventured back for a Saturday lunch today, armed with a £65 voucher, issued after extensive complaints about our previous experience. Today was a better day - aside from slow service at the bar and not being served in order of... More

I come into the Cuckfield very often and am always impressed by their selection of beers they have on tap. Particularly the seasonal beers which they change regularly. They are always from smaller breweries and add a nice variety to the more standard beers that are on offer in the pub and indeed other pubs in the area. The food... More

Took my family here for a Sunday roast yesterday. Service wasn't up to much - had to order food and drinks from the bar and eventually food arrived. There was a terrible smell at the bar itself - have no idea what it was! Food was good (we all had roast beef) and a generous portion. Veg well cooked. However,... More
