It's hard to believe a pub can get it so horribly wrong. Dismal atmosphere, non existent decor, appalling furniture and awful food from a sad, minimal menu. We only went because its location was convenient. Unsurprisingly, we were the only people there. Utterly depressing that visitors arriving by train might judge Battle by the Senlac.

Popped in here with my wife after a three hour train journey, the closest establishment to the train station. We fancied a drink and a bite to eat after the long journey. On approach you're not sure if it's actually open, but we took the plunge and opened a door, and I'm glad we did. This is a typical English... More

Had only read about this pub on Trip Advisor. Called and checked on the Friday that I could get something other than a roast dinner for the Sunday (I'm not a fan even on a Sunday). Assured I could. Arrived to discover Sundays are roast dinners only! However staff were lovely and manager put on the fryers and 2 out... More

Happened to pop in whilst visiting for the 1066 celebration's yesterday with a large, slightly loud but very well behaved, group of young men. We were made to feel really welcome and were hosted impeccably. The warm and welcoming staff made us feel absolutely at home and brightened up the day. The food was plentiful and served up hot. It...
