Griffin Inn East Sussex

“Very popular village gastropub with excellent food and 13 comfortable rooms, many with 4 posters, in picturesque Fletching, with fabulous views over the Ouse valley. Ideal for families.”

“The rooms in the Griffin Inn are pretty posh for a village pub. Four are in the main building of the inn, four are in the 18th. Century coach house and five are in a village house next door. The latter rooms are in fin-de-siecle style. Colours are modern (subdued greens and greys) with splashes of brighter hues in the bathroom tiles and on throws. Downstairs, in the more traditional parts of the inn, food is taken seriously. There is a la carte in the restaurant, a bar menu at the bar and, in good weather, a big barbeque in the large garden with stunning views overlooking the Ouse valley. Food is locally sourced and sensibly cooked. The wine list is sensible too. Children are most welcome and the pub has its own cricket team. What more can you ask?”
