The Ostrich Hotel
Pubs and Bars with Restaurants
Station Road, Robertsbridge, TN32 5DG
This charming village hotel is decorated in Victorian style with ornate plasterwork mouldings and a wealth of vintage paintings and prints. Fires blaze in two of the bars in winter, while the unusual tropical beer garden is a delight in summer with its fruiting banana palms and grape vines. The Ostrich offers honest home-cooked food at very reasonable prices, including great-value Sunday roasts, succulent steaks, highly popular home-cooked ham, and fish from nearby Hastings. Puddings feature classic British favourites and desserts with a French influence. The food is complemented by real ales and a long list of traditional European wines, from pinot grigio to renowned Bordeaux vintages available on request. The historic Bodiam Castle and Great Dixter are within easy driving distance, and The Ostrich has a large car park as well as being right next to Robertsbridge mainline station.
