Nice walk followed by good quality pub food

Just wanted to share ..... Can recommend the Royal Oak at Barcombe, the Plough and Harrow at Litlington, and the Trevor Arms at Glynde - all great food and price. However do avoid the Half Moon at Plumtpton - poor quality and expensive.

I can thoroughly recommend The Fountain at Plumpton - try that next time!

Shame, last time I went to Half Moon about 3 years ago it was lovely

Did go to Litlington walking back from Eastbourne on South Downs Way. Nice pub but a bit of a stretch from Lewes if walking there & back, compared to Glynde, Barcombe or a summer favourite across the hill - the Blacksmiths at Offham. The Fountain, Jolly Sportsman, Cock, Firle may be a bit long winded to avoid the roads.....yep Spring's coming the evenings are getting longer and the wallets going to get lighter

There are some great walks in and around Plumpton (see the link below) and the walk to/from Lewes is good too.
Half Moon is getting a bit overpriced - but the quality is good - what happened to you Bevi?

The food was definitely not good quality. £14 for a roast beef dinner is rather steep - 3 roast potatoes, 1 yorkshire pud, some meat that was tough, and a pile of savoy cabbage - nothing else and no other veg. Also when we mentioned that their was string on both plastes from the meat - got told it was because it is organic and that it had been tied up. Usually when you slice the beef up it is the time to remove the string ! The roast belly pork could not have been smaller and also with gristle throughout the bottom layer was very disapointing. The starter I had for £8 was Goats Cheese panna cotta - the texture (like glue), and the taste was awful. Much nicer places to enjoy- i.e the Royal Oak at Barcombe -£8.50 for a roast and lots of lovely veg, good quality meat and nearly half the price.
