Appears to be trading of its former reputation. Cod and chips that given the pubs location should have been excellent, had the look and taste of Iceland fish steak with accompanying oven chips. Add in a group of shouty blokes at the bar, I would rate the place at around 3 or 4 out of 10, as opposed to the 8 here. The Harvey’s was o.k. but have had far better quality/choice in the region- very disappointing.

I visited this pub with it's new landlord over the christmas period and I have to say I was very unimpressed by the food. Essentially the whole menu was fried. No thanks. What a shame, this did used to be an excellent pub.

This pub has changed since my last review but not particularly for the worse.
Myself and a fellow rambler were made welcome in wet boots and rucksacks on a recent Wednesday lunch time.
REAL ALE on offer at the moment is Harveys and Doombar (a Cornish beer which may be a bit of an aquired sourish taste but is enjoyable) I think ours must have been the end of a barrel though as it tasted a bit flat.
Gone Now (new owner from 6 weeks ago we were told) is the huge choice on a specials blackboard at the back of the pub and also Gone Now is the very busy lunchtime trade (or so it seemed on our visit, there was no one at all in the restaurant area which is normally buzzing) The blackboard today had just 6 specials on it, although they all looked tempting.
We both settled for chicken breast covered in bacon and stuffed with Brie and Cranberries at £8.50. This came with new potatoes and LOTS of Vegetables, a very full plate!
The food was delicious and we will be going back.
Other specials were Curry, Salmon and a Pasta dishes... sorry, can't remember the rest.
The barmaid explained that the staff had not changed and that she had been there for 20 years, it was just the owners that had changed.
There was also a new menu that was handed to us which DID include regular meals like Liver and Bacon Casserole and Pie of The Day. I think this is a mistake as so MANY people are used to looking at the blackboard for all the meals and only seeing 6 rather posh items might think that there was nothing else.
Anyway we shall see.
The service was prompt, the food good and the beer ... well, hopefully it WAS just the end of the barrel and we should have complained shouldn't we?
Down one notch from my last visit.
Horse and Cart Peasmarsh for me now 7 out of 10
Still better than many other pubs in the area though...

Myself and 2 friends walked to the Horse and Cart at Peasmarsh from Icklesham arriving on a recent Wednesday lunchtime at approx 12.50 and as usual were not dissapointed.

In boots and with rucksacks we were made welcopme and settled at a large table in the bar. The pub has a pool table and a juke box but neither were in use and I am sure they attract a younger crowd in the evenings.

There was background pop musak playing but when we asked the landlord if he could turn the volume down in our corner he happily obliged and in fact turned it off altogether! Brilliant!

The pub was very busy and the restaurant was quite full but still service was prompt, organised and friendly.
As an aside, try coming here on a Tuesday lunch time (if you are over 59) as a large sign promises 2 courses for £5.50 on Tuesday lunch times for anyone 59 plus!

Beer was Harveys Best on handpump plus usual array of lagers, wines etc. There were 3 other handpumps with beer name plates turned around and I am sure we have had other beers here in the past, I guess they were off that day.
Harveys was very nice though and well kept at £2.90 a pint.

There is a large blackboard at the back of the pub with a huge array of food on offer at reasonable prices.
I remember various fish, pies and bistro and vegetarian favourites and felt spoilt for choice.
After studying the board and surrepticiously glancing at the meals on the plate of nearby diners, I was torn between several offerings but with a friendly couples reccomendation,
I plumped for the lamb shank (at £8.75) with new potatoes and veg. it was very good with the meat falling off the bone as it should do.

My 2 friends both went for the lamb chops one at the same price as my shank and the other having a "pensioners portion" for a few pounds less.
Both reported tasty meals although one comment was that the meat was a little chewy and probably had been cooked too fast? This I was surprised at as mine was so good ..........but Lamb can be tricky can't it?

All the customers here as well as staff, seem very friendly, the place has a wonderful open atmosphere!

This is a nice, unspoilt, friendly local, we have been here many times when walking and it remains a firm favourite.

We will be back probably several times this year I am sure. 8 10 from me.

Excellent pub!! The staff here are really friendly and make you feel welcome. There is a large choice of food on the menu. The food was excellent and served on time considering there was 10 of us. The garden was adequate with a nice play area for the kids. The landlady (Caron) even went out of her way to thank us for the tip we left behind. Will definetly visit again if we are in the area.
