The Griffin Inn
Fletching, Uckfield, TN22 3SS,
England, United Kingdom
A proper inn, one of the best, a community local that draws a well-heeled and devoted crowd. The occasional touch of scruffiness makes it almost perfect; fancy designers need not apply. The Pullan family run it with huge passion. You get cosy open fires, 400-year-old beams, oak panelling, settles, red carpets, prints on the walls... it's aged well. There's a lively bar, a small club room for racing on Saturdays and two cricket teams play in summer. Smart menus based on the finest seasonal produce include fresh fish from Rye and Fletching lamb; both food and beers are as local as can be. There's a wood oven on the terrace and, on summer Sundays, a spit-roast barbecue – accompanied by ten-mile views stretching across Sheffield Park to the South Downs.
