Now called The Smuggler's Rest, beer OK, staff friendly, food OK. Not super but not bad for a chain.

Went in for lunch this Saturday and was pleasantly surprised. Vintage Inns in my experience tend to ride a roller coaster between good and bloody awful but on this occasion we were definitely near the top. It looks like there have been a few changes other than the name. We received a warm welcome. Beerwise the Harveys was not on but the Adnams was very good - I could easily have had a couple more but we had to be somewhere later. Food was good and came promptly and they provided a full table service though whether they will revert to the the wooden spoons in the high season is anyone's guess. I hope that this regime will continue as at this rate I could happily become a regular.

Now renamed 'The Smuggler's Rest' but still an M & B establishment and I'm not aware of any other changes. Never did find out who Badger was or what he might have been watching but then I doubt if any smugglers rested here either.

Took the under cliff walk from Brighton to Saltdean today and was looking for a pub to have a pint then maybe have dinner. Had been told about this place and was looking forward to the visit.. However upon arriving and waiting at the bar i was asked if we were ordering food and when i said not yet.. was expected to wait till another customer who had arrived after me had their order taken and drinks pored. The bar area was full so we took a small table beside the bar area to "enjoy" our drinks.. Only to be told we shouldn't be sitting there.. When we pointed out there was no seating available in the bar she again stated "these seats are for diners only" (there was not a single person eating in this area.. they were all sitting in the bar area) She sniffed and stalked off.. we finished our pint and left.. the Tavern pub up the road is about a million times nicer and friendlier

We went here on Tuesday 26th April at about 1.15pm for a quick drink.Our dog was allowed in the bar area.The staff were pleasant and welcoming .We ordered two pints of the Reverend James bitter at 3.05 a pint which although slightly cloudy was very tasty and two packs of their cheese and onion crisps.We sat outside on the terrace which overlooks the sea.This seating area was clean and tidy.The toilets are upstairs and were clean and tidy with soap and hand drier.There were a few other customers enjoying food.The other beers available were Spitfire and Harvey's Best Bitter.The pub did not look untidy and ravaged even after a Bank Holiday Weekend.
