As we entered the Pub we were warmly greeted and shown to our table. We ordered our drinks and we were left to look at the menu. The menu items to choose from were few in number. So the choice to us was very limited....More

I've eaten here a few times over the last couple of years and it's always been very good. However, the most recent visit was oustanding (and I don't say that lightly). As always the salt and pepper squid starter was great. However, the beef main...More

We visited on 4th November and found the menu very limited. My wife didn’t like any of the 4 main courses and asked if they would do egg and chips which was declined. I had the lamb kofka which was average and my wife settled...More

This pub has the usual pastel decor found in every gastro pub these days. We went for Sunday lunch. The roasts were good but not amazing. I was disappointed by a limited choice of puddings. However the service was excellent. An extremely knowledgeable waiter took...More

As our local, I was overjoyed when it changed hands a few years ago, as it was poor. Ever since the revamped restaurant opened it has been awesome, the service and food is probably the best in Cuckfield. Steak night on first Friday of the...More

A short walk up the hill from Cuckfield village centre and worth it. A nice pub (we didn't eat but tables were set for dinner) with helpful staff. Local beers.
