Popped in for a quick pint with the wife on a saturday lunchtime. First time we had ever been to this pub. It was reasonably busy, there is a pleasant seating area outside and there was a good choice of ales (i went for the Banks' Sunbeam). I was reliably informed that the ladies toilets were impressively clean; the gents were average. Overall this is a straightforward pub with no false pretences, putting in a shift for the thirsty masses.

We've had 2 family get-togethers here recently and had pleasant lunches. The young ladies behind the bar are both pleasant and efficient...and not one of them called us "guys".

This pub has a unique piece of history as it was the first one to have a Tarratt bar billiards table - in 1930. As in a lot of cases, this was ousted with the advent of the game of Pool in the 1980s. The local pool team here, though resisted the attempted coup to re-establish bar billiards here in 2007.

Ate here a couple of weeks ago and sampled each of the ales/ beers as well, all were fresh and well poured. The food was good and the staff efficent and friendly. we will be returning!

Whilst staying with friends I decided to call in. A small friendly crowd were gathered around the bar for the Tuesday quiz night. I took a short while to decide which ale to have and was hurried a little by the barmaid who appeared a little impatient. Went for the Hobgoblin, a good choice as it was superb.

Ordered steak and kidney pudding which was very nice and plenty of it. Perhaps I shouldn't have accompanied it with the 3 pints of Hobgoblin.

When nature called I was very impressed with the very clean toilets. Think I will call again when in the area. Nice one.

Called in last week for lunch. Excellent meal, and my wife was particularly pleased to be offered fish unadorned with batter or breadcrumbs. Sadly, no Pedigree but some progress as they had a real cider on handpump. very well worth the excursion.

THE PUB WITH NO BEER!! Sunday night no draught beers. The staff were asked why and we were told 'WE DON'T KNOW HOW TO CHANGE THEM' what a way to run a pub bar staff not trained to do the basic jobs.

Very nice pub. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the food is excellent and well priced and I was served the best pint of Marston's Pedigree that I've ever had in Sussex. I know that the pub has had a poor reputation at times in the past but it is now really worth a visit.

Stayed here this week overnight and was a pleasant experience. Room was clean and tidy if a little noisy due to being next to the main road. Beds were comfortable enough. The toilet was little cramped, being sandwiched between the wall and the bath. Also the toilet roll holder fell off the wall. Only one available plug socket.

the pub itself is nice, nice range of beers and the food is pretty good. Had one of their currys which was pretty good I have to say.

Whilst the staff were friendly, there simply were not enough of them! Not very prepared or organised, seems like they have just taken over running the place.

well well what is happening to the wheatsheaf ? it would seem that the brewery have at last come to there senses and given it to people who care! about time too, the last bloke cared more about his appearance than the customers and the beer (when there was some) anyway i wish the lads well and look forward to the grand opening on the 10th of april GOOD LUCK CHAPS

Went there this morning for a coffee with the family and found the place locked up. Looked through the window - no furniture at all inside, nothing on the shelves behind the bar. Has it shut? Not looking good for this good, family friendly pub. Crying shame.

Well after a year of going up there when the pub decided to close at 9:30pm on a Sunday we decided to give it another chance on a Sunday, big mistake this time the decision to close happened at 5:30pm.

Although very popular due to the excellent quiz on a Thursday, this pub is one of the most expensive I know, shame as I would probably visit it more frequently, even though it is quite a distance for me. By the way the landlord decided to close one Sunday whilst we were in there because he was bored. Not very professional as we had all got a cab there in the first place
