|Further to my last comment we really put them to the test ourselves by booking a table for ten on what turned out to be the hottest day of the year so far. When we arrived the place was packed inside and out. There was a small glitch - they hadn't put a 'Reserved' sign on our table so we had to wait until it cleared but other than that no one had any complaints. We were warned the food could take an hour to come. In fact it was barely 20 minutes. The staff coped well and were still in good spirits right at the end of the session. This place is definitely becoming a favourite. |

|We popped in here on Bank Holiday Monday at about 3.30pm.The weather was sunny and the pub was very busy inside and out.We were served after a few minutes waiting in a queue that stretched around the bar.There was Harveys Best and Hoptimus on draught.The hoptimus was very nice.The barman remained cheerful whilst he was working very hard in the circumstances.The serving staff were kept busy.We had a walk and returned a couple of hours later for further refreshments.The same barman was there still serving.He looked hot,i think he looked two foot shorter than earlier.He must have melted a bit .The serving staff remained cheerful including the one we spoke to who was friendly even though she was finishing her shift at 6pm and had had a busy day.The pub is located at a very popular spot for walkers on the South Downs and Seven Sisters Country Park.On a Bank Holiday it is bound to be busy so food orders are going to take longer as i overheard.The pub was coping pretty well.The Toilets were clean and tidy although the soap dispenser had broken under the strain.The Ants on the table outside stood motionless supping the drips of beer from the bottom of glasses.They had had enough.Our visit deserves an 8/10.We will go back again.|

|The demons of the past appear to have been exorcised. We had a big family pre-Christmas bash and I've been back subsequently and have been impressed on both occasions. The real test will be in summer when the place gets packed but what we found is encouraging.|

|Visited on a sunny September lunchtime. Busy but management seemed to have worked hard to ensure more adaquate staffing levels. 3 ales on offer. The Harvey's Best is always well kept and reliable. Cannot run a tab if you're sitting ouside and no option to leave card, so you have to either pay for everything at once or buy on installment if you are in the habit of using plastic. Once again, cannot be surpassed for location and real improvements have been made in the last 12 months.|

|Most of the recent comments here reflect what I found on the evening of Friday 31 August, although what I have to say is slightly kinder. The menu was adequate if not exciting; the guest beer was fine; the staff hard-working; and I have never seen such a splendid bowl of ice cream for £2 as appeared this time. So, my main reservation is difficult to pinpoint, but it is essentially that despite the place being not bursting at the seams and the staff working very hard, there are still unduly long gaps between courses- we waited nearly half an hour for our dessert order to be taken and it to be served. |
Seven out of ten.
