The Griffin Inn

FLETCHING, Uckfield, TN22 3SS

The unspoilt village of Fletching overlooks the Ouse Valley. This imposing Grade II listed inn has landscaped gardens with views over Ashdown Forest, the Sussex Downs and 'Capability' Brown-designed Sheffield Park Gardens. You might just hear a steam whistle, for the heritage Bluebell Railway is little more than a mile away. The 16th-century interior simply oozes charm from its beams, panelling, settles and log fires. The bar's handles dispense the best of local ales, while the already generous wine list has grown since the introduction of the pub's highly popular wine club, which organises tastings, special dinners and excursions. Walkers and cyclists arriving to join destination diners will revel in the menu, created from the freshest of local produce. Look out for gambas crostini, garlic, chilli, white wine and parsley, or Devon crab cakes to start; follow with king prawn, chorizo and squid ink spaghetti; pan-roasted skate wing; or harissa lamb shank and buckwheat pie. On fine summer days the barbecue is fired up and food can be served on the terrace.
