Pre-dating the Domesday Book in 1084, it is thought that The Lamb Inn was formerly a shepherd’s cottage. Even now, the pub has a 24-hour license in lambing season, showing that the rustic qualities are not just visual. Featuring brick arches, pastoral equipment on display, a cosy hearth and an al fresco beer garden, The Lamb Inn is truly a great British country pub, with well-loved food to match.

Hearty Sunday roasts and trusty British dishes head The Lamb Inn menu, and a range just for kids offers mini versions of pub favourites. Signature Vintage pies offer fillings like beef & merlot with buttered peas, while The Lamb Inn ‘Vintage classics’ menu includes lemon & garlic-roasted chicken with seasoned chips.

Paying homage to the Great British pub, the Vintage Inn bar stock includes cask-conditioned beers, real ales and a meticulously compiled wine list. Thirst-quenching offerings include seasonal non-alcoholic cocktails and freshly-pressed juices, and rich coffee is brewed freshly throughout the day.

Hidden in the beautiful, remote countryside of East Sussex, The Lamb Inn Battle is 4 minutes’ drive from Hooe or 5 minutes from Pevensey Bay Train Station.

    Not good. Booking was screwed up, and the food was not good quality.

    Excellent food and surrounding but disappointed on a Saturday evening they did not have a full menu. Run out of Lamb shank and nearly Seabass!! It was early evening and don't think they had the full desert menu either.

    Beautiful old pub, plenty of parking friendly staff, great atmosphere. Good range of food. Went for '3 courses for £20' menu - prawns/scallops, steak/chips and choc brownie to finish, good size portions as well, steak juicy and cooked to perfection, wine and coffee to finish - just a perfect meal.

    We had ordered our pre-lunch drinks only to discover that they didn't have any Worcestershire or Tabasco sauceas as an addition to the glass of tomato juice. Also the Apple puff pastry pudding didn't come with puff pastry at all, in fact the pastry was indescribable and we're not sure what it was!
