My wife & I have been going to the Old Jail or some years& tey have always been welcoming. The food is always very good which is freshly cooked when you place the order so it does NOT come out of a packet via a microwave. The prices are reasonable even for the drink. The real ale comes out of a hand pump. At weekends you always need to book which says it all.

I visited the The Plough with 4 friends. We all got good food and good beer. The service was good and they have outside seating close to the Darent. The prices were reasonable and their dessert excellent.

If you want a traditional pub with good beer,a selection of good wines and good food you can do no better than to visit this pub. It is situated on the edge of the quaint little village of Trottiscliffe. The friendly atmosphere hits you as soon as you step in the door. My first visit was when my family took me there to celebrate my birthday. Being a happy occasion I thought it might have coloured my opinion, but on returning for a casual visit I found the atmosphere just as friendly, the beer, wine and food just as good and plentiful and if you are a crossword fan, stuck on a clue, there is always someone there happy to help with the answers!

We chanced on " trader " near Battle in East Sussex due to a road closure on our way to the South Coast. Its ancient appearance and the number of cars in the car park were enticements. The view from its car park is breathtaking over the "adders fields" which gave rise to the name "Netherfield". Reportedly on a clear day, one sees the Channel. Built in 1725, even at the start of October, the exterior is adorned with colourful hanging-baskets. The interior is decorated to a high degree of cleanliness, comfort and taste. I recognised attractive "Farrow and Ball" paint. It is spotlessly clean and, inspite of lowish ceilings, more of a small restaurant than a pub, in atmosphere. The garden is filled with large terracota pots, worthy of BBC's gardening programmes, with a wide range of delightful plants, in blossom. The lunch menu is reasonably priced with "dishes of the day" displayed on the wall albeit rather awkwardly, right over someone's table. Welcoming properietors, Mike and Sue, make every effort to accommodate special dietary requirements. Our waitress was notably kind, welcoming and helpful. The quality of our food was first class. Our dessert was particularly creative, and I will copy it at home. We felt fortunate to get a free table on a Sunday since this is clearly a popular venue between 12 noon and 3.30pm for discerning local senior citizens. Nevertheless, the noise level was not irritating. We would say that this is a perfect place for an affordable quality Sunday lunch at any time of the year. One can eat in the sun in the perfect walled garden, or inside in summer with the garden door open. It would be perfect for Christmas/New Year, with inglenook fireplaces. Advance booking is highly recommended - by Mike.

A handsome, good value and comfortable 15th century pub with friendly service next to a Premier Hotel. The pub-hotel duo offer a good value place to stay overnight. One can eat in the pub anytime, which also serves breakfast. We have always had excellent food here.

Have been to this pub twice in the last 12 months. Excellent choice, well cooked and good sized helpings, and not too heavy on the pocket. Will return.

Looking for somewhere which would be open for food in the Haywards Heath area at around 4pm on a Bank Holiday Monday my boyfriend and I went into a locals pub which declared, 'no, we're not doing food, sorry, but the Wheatsheaf down the road is...it's not very nice though...'. We decided to give it a go anyway and were so glad we did because we were very pleasently surprised, so much so that I felt I just HAD to write this review to sing its praises. According to their website the business has just undergone a change of ownership and a complete refurbishment. Well, the new owners have got it spot on as far as I'm concerned! The food is incredible and extremely reasonably priced (and available all day!), the staff are friendly and helpful and the facilities and decor are just right. We didn't stay in the accommodation although we would happily have had we needed to having experienced the food and bar service. I highly recommend this pub as a lovely place to eat and drink this summer!

Called in at lunch time on 10th March, for a pint and a meal, my pint of Harvey's was up to the usual very good standard and our food was very good, my steak and kidney pudding and my wife fish dish were promptly served with very generous portions at a reasonable cost. Have used this pub on many occasions in the last 5 years, will admit that the Sunday Lunchtime Carvery is best avoided as the pub is usually swarming with Familys, But Saturday lunchtime have always found a place to eat and enjoyed the atmosphere of a Typical Country Pub.
