We had a 'Feast' menu for Valentine's and it did not disappoint. All the food was cooked beautifully and delicious. Good wine and service too. Already recommended to others.

I’ve been here many times before and have absolutely loved the experience. The setting is so romantic and quaint. We arrived at 6pm on a Wednesday night to an empty pub. It was completely silent and to be honest it felt very uncomfortable. I asked the manager if we could move as it felt really uncomfortable. Himself and his girlfriend were sat on their laptop and said they were leaving so it wouldn’t be awkward and other guests would be arriving soon. It was so strange how he didn’t take the initiative to put on some music? I can only assume he had a headache to completely miss that social que of utter awkwardness!! We ate our dinner, an under cooked chicken burger, in silence. Then promptly left. On the weekends this place is amazing and buzzing. But over the week, not so sure, disappointingly. I’m not after a DJ or a party, just an atmosphere we’re mysekf and my partner are able to talk with privacy.

Excellent service and food. The variety of drinks, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic was exceptional, including local wines and soft drinks. It is a good idea to reserve a table.

Booking process really efficient. My guests enjoyed their meals, I had the roast beef and found it lacking in seasoning/flavour and was gristly for me. I did comment to server but no real response to my feedback, I did however take a doggy bag home and my pupper loved it. Service was excellent. Not sure I would book again.

We had the most wonderful lunch at the Sussex Ox - I’m so pleased to have found it! My son has started at Sussex uni and we need a pub we can take him to - with our dog who he’s always desperate to see. We had a perfect lunch - the food was incredible; beautiful warm breads with delicious oil and balsamic, and I tucked into the best fish finger sandwich I have ever eaten, please never take it off the menu! We will definitely be back - so happy to have found such a great venue that ticks all the boxes; fantastic food, very dog friendly, lovely atmosphere and great service. Can’t wait for our return visit! Vanessa

fantastic service done with a smile, thank you. chips portions were too small with the haddock which itself lacked flavour. soup bit tastless. crusty bread was delicious. overpriced for what it is butwouldn't complain, it's just because you've asked for feedback. lovely ambiance in the pub with fantastic view but as we were a big crowd we were tucked away so we made our own ambience! gorgeous to have a fire going and the waitor was keen, kind and attentive. would expect slightly better food quality for the style of pub. very glad we came though.

Excellent food and beer. Friendly and prompt service. The sea bass was poor value for money given the helping was not that generous.

I’ve visited on numerous occasions and love everything about The Sussex Ox. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, superb food, and selection of drink. When I saw the Festive Sharing Feast on Instagram I knew where friends and I would be heading for our annual Christmas get together and as always we were not disappointed. The entire meal was great, there were four of us but you could have easily feed another person or two. We chose the Cote de boeuf, it was cooked perfect! I would highly recommend to anyone and would be great to see on the menu all year round.
