Lisa and Simon and our various and great staff run this lovely pub just outside of Eastbourne town center. We took over the Pilot Inn in 2011.  We were runners up in the Pub of the Year poll in 2015.  We are praised on Trip Advisor (the site where people really have visited us and speak from direct experience).  So we must be doing something right.


We wanted to transform it into a place for locals and for visitors alike.  We serve modern British food, and all day with a varied menu and a good children’s menu too.  A warm welcome every day for all of our customers was a basic necessity. In 2015, we extended the floor space by adding another dining area and completely upgrading the rest rooms.  A solid wood floor, feature brick walls along with tables and chairs means a great space to eat, with up to ten place settings table combinations.  Silver candelabras, and a wood burning stove set the atmosphere for a leisurely meal. Specials of the day as well as our full standard menu, a great wine list and the full range of drinks from our well stocked bar complete the picture.  Cask and local ales feature too.
