The weekend is here! We're open for lunch and dinner Friday and Saturday, plus for lunch Sunday and Monday too.

Plenty of new treats on our evening menu this weekend too - including a selection of rock oysters, lobster with garlic butter, and the ultimate surf 'n' turf featuring aged fillet steak from Pevensey alongside lobster, crevettes and bone marrow.

On the plant-based side, we have roast local squash with goat's cheese, sage and seeds, plus foraged wild mushrooms from Battle Woods on toast - or add 'em to a steak. Plus our extensive new wine list of exclusively natural and biodynamic wines, from Loire and Burgundy to Slovenia, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.

We've still got a few last spots for dinner tonight and tomorrow, as well as lunchtime availability. Booking recommended, but walk-ins welcome if you can fit.

This #throwbackthursday we are looking back at Mar This #throwbackthursday we are looking back at Marlow Moss exhibition in October 2013 - April 2014.

This @tate touring exhibition featured a group of important works by Marlow Moss (1889-1958), now regarded as one of Britain's most important Constructivist artists. The paintings, reliefs and sculptures, drawn from collections in the UK and Europe, were primarily concerned with an interrogation of movement, space and light.

Prior to the First World War, Moss produced highly abstract painted compositions similar to the work of Mondrian, with whom she is often associated and who she was close to for much of her life. Later, her practice developed toward the production of all-white reliefs and sculptural works.
