I adore this place. It’s the sort of Inn I wish would exist in America but I’m glad I have to travel across an ocean to get to because it makes it even more special. Very quaint and nicely decorated and the breakfasts are amazing!!!

We were very reluctant to book given the reviews but decided to chance it as we were staying nearby, so glad we did. All six meals were delicious. The staff were very professional and efficient. A lovely pub and would recommend.

Simple food, great beer, five luxury bedrooms and a warm welcome. That’s what you can expect at the Tiger Inn. Just off the idyllic village green in sleepy East Dean, the Tiger Inn is a quintessentially English pub.
