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.

    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.

    We’d heard great things about the food and having been to another Vintage Inn and loved it we were expecting good things. However, it was very average food for higher than average prices. Both my husband and I went for the Sunday roast. The potato’s were cold and under done. The rest of the food was fine, but we’ve had much better roasts elsewhere. Our table was booked for 12.30 and we were some of the first people in the restaurant so it wasn’t like they were super busy either. Wouldn’t return soon, maybe to try the regular menu.

    Service was fine, food and drink served quickly.

    Our experience was excellent. Of the four of us, three had the panchetta wrapped cod loin - which is my personal favourite and was very much enjoyed by the others. Of the starters, two of us enjoyed the asparagus. You often serve pea shoots and I love these. The prawn cocktail is also extremely nice. The fish and chips was also, apparently very good. It is a really good place for a meal, and we like the surroundings both of the restaurant and the 'bar' area. And Harvey's AND Doombar is a very good choice of ale.
