The George Inn

Battle, Sussex

Luxury-steeped bedrooms at this handsome old inn, and a comfortable bar - a happy backdrop for rump of lamb with minted rösti


4 rooms


Rooms sleep 2


This handsome old inn in pretty Robertsbridge has a warm welcome for all. The bare-boarded, earthy-hued bar/dining area is the perfect setting for richly textured fabrics, wool and leather chairs and sofas, painted tables and beautiful period pieces. Family portraits gaze serenely down as you enjoy a pint of Rother Valley Level Best and get cosy by the brick inglenook – famously favoured by Hilaire Belloc. If you’re peckish, look to the chalkboards for the day’s local and seasonal dishes: locally landed lemon sole, Rye Bay scallops, slow-roasted pork belly with Bramley apple spiced compote, chargrilled lamb rump with minted rösti. Or opt for a chargrilled rib eye steak, cut to size and order. Leave room for lovely puddings, especially the chocolatey ones. Upstairs, money has been lavished on four gorgeous luxury-steeped rooms with superb Hypnos beds, signature wallpapers, rich fabrics, antique furniture and beautiful en suite shower rooms. Perfect for visiting nearby Battle, Bodiam Castle, Pashley Manor Gardens and more besides.
