Griffin Inn - Fletching

The High Street, Fletching, East Sussex, TN22 3SS
Find this pub/restaurant, with rooms, hidden away from the world and modern traffic. A true destination - and even then, it might be a struggle to find.

Although for many years, this has been a draw for many miles around - so in that respect run on the lines of a commercial business - it's still very much the village local, especially during the cricket season.

Food here is fairly ambitious, and the bar menu alone has enough interesting choices to satisfy most appetites. A late spring visit might bring char-grilled local asparagus or properly executed Mediterranean Fish Soup (although our two wafer-thin croûtes were a little mean, for lovers of rouille) - and these are just bar starters. Fine for a good light meal, if you don't mind a bare wooden tables, rather than the more formal dining room.

The restaurant menu expands into the likes of 'Sweet Onion Soup with Mussels & Thyme'; 'Seared Rye Scallops, Caponata, Crispy Prosciutto, Vincotto'; 'Deep-fried Crab Cakes with Rocket Mayonnaise' and 'Game Terrine with Peach Chutney' as starter offerings.

'Roast Rack of Lamb with a Herb & Mustard Crust'; 'Pan-Fried Fillet of Sea Bream with Creamed Celeriac, Spinach & Tapanade'; 'Spiced Duck with Stir-fried Noodles & Ginger' and 'Char-grilled Vegetables & Goats' Cheese Pithivier with Basil Oil' among the mains.

If you have room, perhaps finish with the unusual 'Banana & Chocolate Crème Brulée'; 'Treacle Tart with Stem Ginger Ice Cream; 'Pannacotta with Roast Pears' or a local cheeses.
