About the Pub

Originally two cottages dating from 1615 it later became known as 'Staymakers' after a former innkeeper. It was frequented by members of the infamous Hawkhurst gang of smugglers. Re-named Wellington Arms in 1815 after alterations and to commemorate the victory at the Battle of Waterloo. In 2003 it gained its current name and became a gastropub with a reputation for excellent food. The two split-level areas are functional but also very tasteful and lead out to a patio area. The staff are attentive and friendly. The pub is licensed for weddings and has a function room for hire. It is wise to book for meals as it can get busy. Two reserved position for electric vehicles to recharge.
