"Excellent food and service. This was our first visit and will definitely not be our last. We were made to feel very welcome & the food and service were outstanding"
"Another delicious lunch! Have been coming to Netherfield Arms for several years and it never disappoints. Excellent menu, friendly staff and lovely surroundings. Garden was looking beautiful. Thank you!"
"Recent visit with family was a perfect evening. We all enjoyed superbly cooked and presented meals with excellent, friendly and efficient service. Thank you to Caroline and Mike. A great pub/restaurant."
"Hi to you all. Thank you for a lovely meal on Wednesday for our gardening club gathering. Everyone was pleased with their food - hot, tasty and nicely served and presented and vegetables great too. A cosy room and friendly atmosphere. So thank you. We must come again sometime."
"I visited the Netherfield Arms with a view to treating my Mum to lunch as it was her birthday. She can be difficult to please when it comes to dining out but you managed it! I was told that the Thai salmon fishcakes (homemade) were the best she had ever tasted, and more than ample for one mouth. Quite something as she has sampled a lot of Thai food - including in Thailand itself. So well done, and many thanks!"
"Today my wife and I, together with a friend had the most delightful lunch at Netherfield Arms. The smoked haddock and the pork belly meals were perfectly prepared. Service was excellent. This in NOT normal pub-food!"

"We are Battle residents and wish to convey our thanks and appreciation for the marvellous setup at the Netherfield Arms. From the time we and our friends enter your establishment - warmth & friendship are in abundance. Your menus are great and the service ever so friendly making us want to return as often as possible. Our friend Robin Woodley who visits from London always looks forward to visiting and sends best wishes."

"Heard so much about Mike and Caroline and have just visited with friend, June. We had a splendid homemade fish pie with vegetables introducing June to celeriac. Delicious meal in convivial surroundings. Will certainly look forward to next visit."
"My husband Matt and I moved down to Sussex a few months ago, not knowing anyone and discovered the Netherfield Arms one day and have not looked back since. Mike and Caroline are very gracious hosts and welcomed us like old friends from the start. We now try and go once a week if we can. Whenever we have friends visiting we always take them there for lunch or dinner - it's a great local pub with fabulous food, atmosphere and views. Brilliant for couples, families or large groups of friends - I'd highly recommend it to everyone!"
"Hi Caroline, I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all your staff for today. We really enjoyed the food, the waiting staff were great and my family had lots of positive things to say about the atmosphere, the quality of the food and service. An ideal venue for our dedication lunch!"
Kind regards, Nikki Ward-Smith
"Hi Mike and Caroline, it's Eric Saunders. You may recall my visit to the Netherfield Arms back in May. First of all I must say what a pleasant surprise it was to walk in to the old Netherfield Arms, or should I say new? I wish we would have had time to try that delicious looking menu, believe it or not, I heard some great comments about it during our short stay. It was great to see how the old places have changed after 57 yrs, we had a great tour in Normandy, can't wait to visit you again LOL?, who knows.."
Kind regards Eric and Keith Saunders, WASAGA BEACH ONT CANADA
"The Netherfield Arms is one of the best places to eat in the Battle area. How often do you go to a restaurant one day to find that it’s changed, usually for the worse, when you go back? Well, in the two years we’ve been living in the area The Netherfield Arms has never let us down: the food, service and welcome are all consistently excellent and they always go that little bit further to make a meal special. On one occasion we booked a table at very short notice and mentioned, in passing, that it was our daughter’s birthday. When we got there the table was beautifully decorated with a Birthday banner and balloons! If you want great food, friendly service and a welcoming happy atmosphere I cannot recommend The Netherfield Arms highly enough."
"If you want an excellent meal, in a warm and inviting environment, with superb views of the adjoining countryside, then the Netherfield Arms is the place to visit. Mike and Caroline have been at the Arms for some 13 years and built an enviable reputation for a very varied and interesting menu, well cooked and presented, excellent wines, beers and service."
