please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Delighted to find that not only was Harvey's Sussex Bitter on tap, but Legless Rambler as well! The Harvey's was in excellent condition and the lunch was very good too. I shall be back...

Delighted to find a cask of Legless Rambler behind the bar. They also have Harvey's on draught. Ideal for those walking the coastal path. Note that the pub and cafe are separate.

Has rare and tasty Biddenden cider, rather oddly sold in 330ml. bottles (two make just over a pint). Hourly bus to Eastbourne and Brighton passes outside in summer.

If you are lucky enough to visit when the bar is open, it is very pleasent and staff very friendly. Ales include Harvey's Best (of course) and a cask of Beachy Head - usually Original. Not surprising as the microbrewery is just up the road.
Comfortable lounge attractively decorated and a good space to spend a quiet moment with a well kept pint.

Went here 2 weeks ago and the pub was closed.

It has now re-opened as a cafe on seaward side and a licensed bar at the old thatched bar area. The National Trust have done a good job of revamping the premises. The pub food is good and the local beachy head ale is most acceptable. Please note, the bar closing time is an early 8 p.m. Presumably the passing tourist trade has departed by then.

Sadly this place is no more. It was sold to the National Trust in April 2010 after 50 years in the hands of one family, and they are working inside to refurbish the building. Based on the information posted outside it is unlikely to be a licensed premises in future so no more Old Speckled Hen or Sussex Bitter for the weary cliff walker in this locale.
