Visited one recent lunchtime after walking my dog. Very quiet but friendly service and a good pint. Two people in restaurant who said their meal was great. The landlady bought out a huge bowl of water for the dog which was appreciated. Will happily return.

first visit for me following recommendation from some CAMRA friends. Very impressed. The beer was good - new to me was Mermaid ale from the Milk Street brewery in Frome. Very hoppy and autumnal; I was driving so had to limit myself. The food was really excellent in quality, quantity and price. A pub as good as this is a great addition to the area. Do try; do support this place.

A friend and I walked to The Blacksmiths at Ninfield from Bexhill on a recent Wednesday lunch time, we met with 7 others there who had joined us on our advance reccomendation of good food from a previous visit. It still was excellent!

The welcome was good, the landlord and staff friendly as were the few locals there. I don't know why this pub is not a LOT busier everything is right, I guess it is that the Mitchel and Butler Carvery pub just down the road (�3.59 at the moment for a roast dinner) is taking all the business. This is a shame as The Blacksmiths is an excellent alternative for a few pounds more if you want to do MORE than fill an empty belly cheaply with basic food.
To continue, beer on hand pump was Harvey's best, Hawarth (I think) Summer ale (delicious and very refreshing) and Adnams best, all were well kept and various members of our party 6 men and 1 lady sampled all.

The pub was clean and well furnished and sported a good menu and a large specials board.
On offer were some very nice dishes, I had Pork Fillets in Apple and Calvados with mash and 4 roast vegetables served in a separate dish, very nice! Others of our party had Pan Fried Vennison, fish and chips, scampi and chips and ham egg and chips. I certainly was very pleased with my Pork and I heard no complaints from the other diners. Every thing was served piping hot and pretty quickly too!
We will be returning again, this pub does deserve more support, if you don't NEED to pay just �3.59 for a roast, TREAT yourself, drive a few hundred yards further and try the Blacksmiths, you will be pleased you did.
For me 8 10 for this friendly village pub!

The new landlord (since Oct 08) has really changed the place. Although the outside may still be unimposing (he promises to change things in the spring) the inside is now colourful, warm and inviting. Three great ales (Adnams, Harveys and Rother Valley) and the walls bedecked with brewery memorabilia. Food local, fresh and nicely presented. What has changed most, though, is that there is a real welcome in the place. Take a visit for a really lovely surprise.

Empty and soulless with a barman (boy) who likes to read his book in between the tedious task of having to serve us. The pub across the road had at least 80 customers eating, probably because they are serving a plate of cheap grub at under four quid, but this place didn't have any customers after we left.
