At Pevensey Bay consider stopping off at the historic Castle Inn. The inn dates all the way back to the 16th Century. It's recently been tastefully renovated, with its low ceilings and oak beams it retains its 'old world' pub charm. The pub has a large suntrap garden which is enjoyed by many during sunny weather. It's also dog friendly and a great place to stop at for refreshments on the route. You can find the inn at a postcode of BN24 6HS for your sat navs.
