Restaurant description

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.

    Great food and service, was a bit cold in there on Saturday but did not detract from experience

    Have used the Lamb Inn on several occasions before for Sunday lunch but on this occasion it was not as good as it has been in the past. The ambience and staff were fine but the standard of the food was less impressive. The starters and main course were average whereas in the past I would classify them as excellent. Maybe a change of chef is to blame. It's a pity as we like the venue and it's an ideal location to meet up with friends who reside in the region.

    Took too long. Our food from order to finish took almost 3 hours. Starter took over 45 minutes to arrive, main took a further 35. We skipped pudding... Table booked for 13:00 by the time we left it was gone 14:50.. Food wasn’t worth the wait either. Lobster fish cakes were cold and no lobster to speak of. Turkey pie was full of skin and fat. Pork was over cooked. On a positive the starters were really good. Calamari cooked to perfection (smallest portion I’ve ever had, just 3 pieces) Soup was tasty and the prawns were good. But overall very disappointing meal, waitress didn’t ask once if everything was ok with the meal, even when she took away my almost full plate.

    The meals was terrible, flavourless and disguised the lack of meat by putting it on a massive pile is spinach. The tart was bland and small hidden under so much vegetation including whole carrots not even cut. Who serves 5whole carrots on a plate? Deserts were microwaved and you can tell by the fact the brownie has a sauce that had bubbles as it had been in the microwave. £7 for someone to put it in a microwave ? I could have done this at home. Unacceptable when you charge money

    Good menu. Plenty of choice. We took our little dog as it is a dog friendly restaurant. Ordered at the bar. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Food was very good, my wife thought the ice cream desert was the best she’s ever had. My cheesecake was delicious. We would recommend this restaurant and we will definitely go again.
