About Us and Our History
There has been an Inn on this site since the 12th Century, and the listed building currently on the site was erected in the late 14th Century. Robertsbridge was an early market town that grew up beside a Norman abbey, itself founded along the strategically-important road from Hastings.
One of the oldest buildings in the village, it is a typical Wealden Hall, and despite many modifications over the centurys, still boasts some original timbers and architectural features, including the crown-post roof. It has a reputation for being haunted, with occasional sightings over the years, and is part and parcel of the history of Robertsbridge.
Our name is an ancient one; if its origin is lost in time, its association with hospitality and refreshment is timeless, and we are proud to carry on the tradition.
A large rear garden is next to our car-park along Fair Lane, with shaded tables and a semi-covered smoking area. Inside we have a dining area - we serve food all day - a bar and a pool table. By prior arrangement we can provide accomodation.
