user reviews of the War Bill-in-Tun Inn, Warbleton

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Following 25 years as landlord, the great majority of which were shared with his wife Val, Bryan has retired and this historic pub is in new ownership. It was closed at the end of April for refurbishment and is expected to reopen in a few weeks.

I understand that the name "The War Bill-in-Tun," which dates back to the English Civil War, has been consigned to the pub names dustbin, and when it reopens the "Warbill" will be renamed as "The Black Duck." Shame.

I came across this pub while having a holiday at a local barn conversion. The barn owner uses this pub so I thought I would give it a go.

What's with the 'grey lunch brigade' remark?
Bit ageist considering everyone is entitled to enjoy a pint and a meal:(
Which I did last Saturday. 3 pints of Harveys Best as I had the benefit of a driver. Excellently kept. The beer that is. The driver was OK too!
All the meals were good and the atmosphere welcoming and friendly.
Staff were efficient and did a good job.

Worth the detour from our usual haunts and I will definitely go again.

The food in this pub is unfortunately revolting. It has an egon ronay recommendation from 1994 but the chef then cannot be the same one now. The sunday roast was so awful we had to feed it to the dog.

Still the same. Beer quality very average. Quiz on first Sunday in the month. (Don't know why my review below was anonymous.)

This pub is in a most tranquil setting in a small Sussex hamlet. It's a picture postcard setting and a lovely spot to sit outside on a warm summer's day, particularly as a pitstop from a walk or cycle ride in the beautiful local countryside. (Not open all day though - too quiet.)

Inside is very 50s - the dining room very popular with the grey lunch brigade. Food is average and the chalked "specials" board remains unchanged. There's a raised horseshoe bar at one end but why oh why is it shaped so that the drinkers sit on the inside of the horseshoe? Yes - with their backs to each other!

For interest, a short walk down the road is Kingsley Hall which was owned by Beatles' manager Brian Epstein at the time of his death on 27th August 1967.
