Church Street, Willingdon, Eastbourne, BN20 9HP

Willingdon is an historic village nestled at the foot of the South Downs, just three miles north of Eastbourne. Occupying a special place at its geographic heart is a little gem: The Wheatsheaf. The pub is a popular destination for walkers, with plenty of routes through the South Downs that allow you to take in some of the most beautiful scenery in the National Park. The Wheatsheaf proudly maintains its role as a social hub for the tight-knit local community, although its appeal extends far beyond the village. Its popularity is evident throughout the year at their many well attended events, including the nativity and Christmas carols, the wassail procession, the Willingdon Festival of Ale and the national cycling hill climb event, to name a few.

The owners have recently converted the saloon bar into a well-appointed coffee lounge. Separate from the buzz of the pub, the relaxed lounge has proven to be an enormously popular addition, as have the wonderful homemade cakes produced by the landlord’s daughter.

The lunchtime food offering ably caters for those seeking a lighter meal, and includes an excellent selection of sandwiches and hot panini. You’ll find more substantial, hearty meals such as classic beef stew served with crusty bread. This is perfect food to warm the cockles after a winter hill walk. The concept of simple food extends to the concise evening menu, which is excellent quality. The Wheatsheaf exceeds expectations; it’s the perfect village pub.
