Booked this hotel as my wife stayed here earlier this year. Very good evening meal, I had pheasant and my wife had steak, both very tasty and good value. 2 decent beers on - harveys and hobgoblin. Breakfast good as well. Given the rating as we've stayed in more expensive places and they're nowhere near as good. Rooms OK as...

Popped in for drinks with a large group of friends. I didn't stay to eat so can't comment on food. Good facilities, plenty of space and areas that can be reserved. Some areas of the pub are dog friendly.

The only reason we didn't give a higher rating was,the lack of heating (the heating had broken down, but they put a heater in our room as soon we mentioned it was cold.) And the breakfast was cold because the waitress was preoccupied. If we had the attention we had in the evening it would have been outstanding. As a...

We would like to thank all the staff for a memorable couple of nights at the Horseshoe Inn. They looked after the 6 us so well, following the funeral of an elderly relative. The food was truly scrumptious. Thank you Mariya and Gareth

Very friendly and helpful staff made our night's stay very pleasant. Food was good, room was clean and tidy and a good size for two adults and a 9 year old. We visited both Battle and Herstmonceux from here.

Bar area has character, food that I had was ok, beer was ok. Rooms are dated , but clean and a good size shower cubicle. Some road noise audible in rooms to the front of hotel. Mattress not that comfortable. Overall good value for an overnight stay.

When we were looking for wedding venues, we were a bit dubious about the Horseshoe, especially when looking at some of the older reviews on Tripadvisor. However, we decided to go and have a look and see what we felt in person. We met with Emma, who was the proprietor before Mariya and Gareth. She talked us through the wedding...

We stayed in October for a wedding of friends of ours. Travelled over with our 2 boys and stayed in the family room. £100 for 2 nights including breakfast seemed like a bargain. But as with most things you get what you pay for. Nothing majorly wrong with the place just very dated. Some staff are less than helpful and...

Stayed three nights from Tuesday October 11th to Friday 14th 2016 prior to the 950th Anniversary of the Battle of Hastings. When booked, having seen the photos both inside and out, we thought it was too good to be true at the price we were paying (£54 a room per night B&B). Having stayed our opinion remains the same. The...

B&B at under £80 for two is always a bit of a gamble .... this time lost out quite a bit. Do note that others appear to have paid quite a bit less - maybe down to the 950 yr Battle of Hastings anniversary weekend so was this a bit of judicious profiteering? Room was small with a grotty windowless...
