 The Bent was a lovely treat. A real old timber framed Inn at the heart of an unspoilt, characterful Sussex village. The pub and restaurant sections were alive and seemed to be a proper hub of the community - tho we were caught out by the kitchen closing at 9. But there was a really good Italian right next door. Still, we made up for it by making full use of the excellent breakfasts. We really enjoyed the scrambled egg, and you cant say that about every hotel!
