Lovely pub - decked out old worldy, very nice ambience. A Greene King pub I believe, had two of their Suffolk offerings on and the more local Dark Star Hophead which is an excellent beer and the one I opted for - it was in good condition.

A beautiful pub located in an idyllic Sussex Town.The pub has a real oldly worldly feel to it and captures Sussex past. I opted for the Dark Star Hophead although I was tempted to try the Cask Ale. The pub also has a lovely beer garden and the food was excellent. The Sunday Roasts, the beef and lamb are the best we have had for some time. The meat was of high standard and cooked to perfection, as was the veg. We will definitely go back.

This place was shut on a sunny, July Saturday afternoon... what! Go to The Smugglers if you want a nice pub in Alfriston. Skip The Star (big mistake). Sorry to be negative, but really... shut!

Fantastic pub. Full of old world charm - this has been a pub since the late 1300s. It's all exposed wood and beams, and a big fireplace burning logs. The atmosphere is wonderful. You could sit in here all day and let the world go by. The staff are friendly, polite and helpful, and there are free newspapers left around.

However the main point of a pub is the beer, and on our visit two beers were not available, so the only choice was GK IPA - not the most exciting of beers, and it was served in adequate, but not top condition.

These days food is also highly important in pubs. The pub seems to have ambitions in this area, and has been listed in Michelin since 2007, so it was unfortunate on our visit that several menu items were unavailable. Fair play to the chef, when pesto had run out for the child's spaghetti, he was prepared to improvise and make a tomato and cheese sauce on request. Though he forgot the cheese, so the meal was insipid. We ordered the Welsh rarebit and were as equally astonished as the couple last year to find that it mainly consisted of a door step of warmed brown bread. The sauce was smeared thinly on top with little cheese content (if any!) - it tasted mainly of flour and Worcester sauce. A shame.

We loved the pub itself. Loved the aroma of the wood fire. It felt good to be there. I would be more than willing to try it again, as I suspect we came at the wrong time on the wrong day. With a better beer and a better menu choice I'm sure we'd feel this was one of the best pubs on the planet!

What the George has is atmosphere. And an amazing if pricey menu. As a venue for a meal on a winter's evening, its hard to beat. A special occasion pub. Tried the shared charcuterie platter: delicious. Ale: Abbot, Old Trip, IPA - year in , year out but its very well kept and at least you know what you're going to get. Good palce for a pint and a read of the newspapers when quiet and a slice of Olde England.
