NOTICE: Venues need your support more than ever during the ongoing coronavirus crisis.

Under this stage of the roadmap in England pubs can only open outdoor areas and many will only be open for customers who have pre-booked. Alcohol can now also be sold for takeaway, as well as delivery

But please be aware that opening hours and services may be different to those displayed here. Before visiting or ordering from any venue, we strongly advise you to check its website or social media, or get in touch with them first to avoid disappointment.

If you see any details here that need updating, please let us know by submitting feedback on the pub.


The Giant's Rest Wilmington
We have made the decision to not reopen on 12th April.
With the restrictions planned for the next step of the Roadmap, we don't believe we will be able to deliver the real pub experience you have all come to know and love, when visiting The Giant's Rest.
We will re-evaluate this frequently, and will update you all as soon as we decide to reopen.

About the Pub

A Victorian building which is located within a short walk of the Long Man, a chalk figure now reinforced by concrete blocks, cut into the side of Windover Hill. This free house which serves two beers from Sussex breweries and a local cider, was originally a village cottage, converted in the 1920s and now a busy establishment serving home prepared food, locally sourced where possible. A popular pub with locals, walkers and tourists alike. There is a quiz night on the first Tuesday of the month
