Visit to see Lynnes family and an overnight stay near the seafront. 9 guests on, all %5 or under and a lot more interesting than I found in most Eastbourne pubs. Our Barmaid got the prices wrong, gave us the wrong change, and needed sorting out.
Ramsgate Brewery (Gadds') - No. 35.00GoodHard to believe this was on here at £2.88 a pint cheaper than any where in Ramsgit.
Lymestone - Stone Age4.20Acceptable

2 visits over the weekend. Men without tops walking around the bar. Not welcome.
Sambrook's - Powerhouse Porter4.90Good£2.70 a pint
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried£3.25 a pint! Up from 3.15 on my last visit 4 years ago. What a rip off. Manager told me its even more in Brighton. So what?

Late morning for T. Four times as many people in this, the first JD to open here. Good range on, including upcoming festival ales.
Temperance Union - Ott Softy1.00Good

Excellent barstaff. Prices much higher than the Maidstone Spoons, but 6 'boring' beers on including Gloombar. Needs a decent anager to overhall to bring it up to a better standard.
Adnams - Broadside4.70Good
Long Man - Long Blonde3.80Good
Sharp's - Doom Bar4.00Not Tried£3.15 a pint!! Hard to believe

Arundel - Winston Church Ale4.70Good

It's a pretty typical town centre 'Spoons. Pretty soulless, but as Andrew says, its cheap food and cheap beer.
Titanic - Iron Curtain6.00GoodI do really like the choc on this. It surprised Andrew at being 6%
Hilden - Molly's Stout4.20AcceptableNot as good as the first time I had it at Tonbridge. More a normal plain stout.

We needed some food and that's one of Wetherspoon's strengths in my book - cheap food. Also, their beer festival was still on so there were some interesting beers on offer.
Hilden - Molly's Stout4.20AcceptableDusty tasting beer.
Titanic - Iron Curtain6.00AcceptableSharp slightly milky chocolate powdery sour beer.

Summary of Beer Scores



The pub is found in Eastbourne, East Sussex, BN21 4QD.

This pub occupies what used to be the Cornfield Motor company building going on the sign painted on the wall above the door. By the mid 19th century, most of Eastbourne was owned by the Cavendishes (Dukes of Devonshire) and the Gilbert family. It was William, second Earl of Burlington, later seventh Duke of Devonshire, who saw Eastbourne's potential. He built the first sea wall and villas to entice wealthy visitors, and had the county surveyor, James Berry, draw up a plan for the town. Extensively expanded, almost doubling its size, in 2015 with an extension on the rear.

We have visited this pub 8 times, seen 21 different beers and tried 11 of them.
