....who ever thought of the idea was a genius!!

Ate here in the summer for the second time and it was definitely an improvement from the first. The crispy cockles were the jewel of my meal - although my family kept stealing them from me!

Really good value, service and setting. The waitress we had was amazingly helpful and friendly.

We stopped here for dinner on a Monday night and were made to feel very welcome from the moment we entered. Staff engaged well with the kids and even sorted out a meal for one child which was not on the menu. Fish and chips were wonderful.

The special £10 menu for a main plus a drink ( wine or beer) produced some delicious food, Coq au Vin and mash plus grilled salmon on a bed of rice and vegetables. Dessert and local cheese selection was also excellent. Good and friendly service. Was just right for a friends lunch get together

We booked a table for 6 online easy enough, based on the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor. I am so glad we did. The Buxted Inn is situated in the centre of Buxted, with adequate parking around the back. The decor and style is very modern and clean, but had enough of a homely touch in the bar area to relax. Local ales were on sale which was also a very big plus.
The menu, whilst not extensive is varied, locally sourced and interesting enough to give diners a difficult decision on what best to have. Not that it mattered too much because when the food came out all the selected dishes looked and tasted incredible.
from starters right through to dessert, all of us remarked on how well presented, and delicious the food was.
The quality of service also matched the food, staff were attentive, friendly and helpful.
Thoroughly enjoyable experience and would definitely return when next in the area

My review heading says it all!! I was staying here on a business trip - arriving after a four hour drive myself a my colleague were greeted with a lovely warm smile and a friendly exchange. We were shown pur rooms and everything carefully explained. My room was tastefully decorated, calm and very clean. Lovely extra touches and everything you would need. Then had a lovely meal and a hood night's rest. Thank you .. I will definitely book again when I am in the area.
