Historic hospitality in the heart of Battle

A beautiful Grade II listed hotel, bar and restaurant in Battle, The Abbey Hotel has Battle of Hastings history on its doorstep.

The hotel sits opposite Battle Abbey, gateway to the country’s most iconic battlefield - and while the area was once the scene for cavalry chaos, it’s now a blissfully relaxing place to dine, drink and stay.

The Abbey serves a delicious breakfast, lunch and dinner menus - with dishes inspired by international flavours and crafted from local produce.

There’s a selection of sharing platters and classic mains to enjoy in our smart, modern restaurant, and tasty snacks to accompany your pint, wine or cocktail in the bar.

The bar area also houses a deli counter, showcasing local produce such as tasty chutneys, pickles and cheeses which we use on our Ploughman’s Lunch and cheeseboards.

Opinion wavers on rights and wrongs when it comes to food, wine & beer matching, certain flavours bring out the best in each other, we match our dishes with different wines and beers that we feel bring out the best taste, use our guide as a rule of thumb, but most of all enjoy the wine & beer you drink! Be aware we cook with wine, sometimes we even put it in the food!
