The Salehurst Halt is a glorious pub! We popped in on a walk and sat out in the sunny garden as it was such a nice day but would have been equally happy to be inside. The staff were most welcoming and we popped back in for another on our way back. Cheers!

Visited twice at lunchtime this week. Excellent pint of Biddenden Bushells cider which took preference over the Dark Star options.

We sat outside with our cider and a cheese and tomato sandwich and were entertained by watching the traffic trying to pass (it's a narrow lane and only on-street parking for pub customers).

Bar staff were extremely friendly even though we were obviously tourists. Went away with a carry-out container of cider.

My favourite pub. The bar staff can take a while to warm to you but if you persist you'll break the ice.
There's something about standing outside in the pitch black in a corner of England so quiet you could be back two hundred years in time that is almost impossible to find in the Weald these days.
The beer is excellent. They're dedicated followers of the Dark Star Brewery and have most of the monthly ales at some point - though they do sell out.
Haven't eaten here but I tend to go for the beer and the feeling that you're in a proper pub, run by people who care about running a proper pub.
The Salehurst Halt is one of those places that makes me happy just knowing it's there.

Although it was possible to have a drink, most people were eating when we visited one recent lunchtime. And clearly they make most of their trade from food. I have to say the menu was imaginative and value for money. The beer (Harvey's Best) was excellent. One jarring note was the intrusive piped music.

The lack of a car park means there's parked cars along the narrow lane outside, but don't let that put you off. Having squeezed your motor into whatever gap you can find (without upsetting those living there), you walk into the pub to be greeted by a cheerful busy atmosphere, rural unpretentious decor and a delicious smell of Sunday roast! The atmosphere when I was there was definitely one of people quietly enjoying the beer, the food and each other's company.

The ales on offer were Harvery's Sussex, Hastings Blonde and Dark Star APA and from the assorted pump clips behind the bar it's evident they're supporters of the fine local ales available in Sussex and Kent. I only sampled the Hastings Blonde and it tasted spot on. The interior isn't huge so booking for lunch is a good idea and the menu didn't disappoint. I ordered roast beef & Yorkshire pudding with roast potatoes which arrived with green vegetables in a separate dish plus a gravy boat so I could drown my Yorkshire pud! It didn't take long to arrive either and the beef was nicely cooked (not over done).

Outside there's a pretty garden with extra space for quaffers and diners on the patio and lawn areas, and there's relaxing views out over the Downs. Service was friendly too and I left feeling relaxed and happy. Definitely one to seek out (and a shame I don't live a lot closer).
