Everything on our menu is created in our own kitchen using local fresh seasonal ingredients. We are so lucky to be able to buy lamb and beef from Place Farm whose herds can be seen grazing in the park around Firle Place. Game comes from Firle Estate, most of our fish comes from Shoreham, and in the summer the Vicar goes fishing and brings us buckets of prawns and mackerel as well as tiny sweet wild strawberries and wild mushrooms from the Downs. Our bread is baked every day at Flint Owl bakery in Glynde.

The menu changes regularly, sometimes daily depending on what’s available. We always cook a roast on Sundays.

Full Menu Service times are as follows:

Monday to Friday 12pm-3pm / 6.30pm-9.30pm

Saturday :  12pm-3pm / 6.30pm-9.30pm

Sunday 12pm-4pm /6.30pm-9.30pm

We are open for breakfast every day from 9am – 11am and between full menu service times we offer a reduced afternoon menu consisting of Boards, Ploughmans’ and Ciabattas.

First & foremost The Ram is a village pub. A warm summer’s evening brings everyone out to the garden and the beach (the seating area at the front of the pub). The cricket team wanders round from the ground for jugs of Harveys, and many glasses and jugs of Pimms are served. We have a carefully chosen selection of bottled beer, spirits & quality juices and soft drinks.

There are 5 real ale pumps, one of which is always Harveys, and one cider or perry. We rotate 3 other quality local ales including beer Firle’s very own brewery ‘Burning Sky’ which is based in a converted barn at the top of the street. If you’re here on delivery day, you’ll see the Burning Sky barrels being rolled down the street. We are Cask Marque accredited.
