Needed sustenance after my 71 mile ride to Eastbourne- Music, TVs (on silent), pool, sausage dish billed as the “dogs bollocks” as the special of the month - friendly barmaid. Cosy feel - I liked it. Cosy feel - I liked it - at least while I ate.

First stop on our Eastbourne crawl. Tried several bars but the beers on offer were not what we were looking Greene King and national beers.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00Good£3.55 a pint but Angie was most upset to pay £2.15 for a half. This outrageous price was not advertised.

Mid afternoon a few drinkers dotted about the pub. A couple of tv screens muted allowing for the softly playing blues style background music creating a relaxed atmosphere.
Harvey's - Sussex Best Bitter4.00GoodIn good condition but lacking the usual bite.
East London (ELB) - Truman's Zephyr4.40GoodFull of flavour alas on the tired side but pleasant enough.
