The Pilgrims Rest is however more than just a beautiful old building. Having opened her doors to visitors and pilgrims to Battle since C1420, this grand old lady has historic soul. She has hosted celebrations from medieval banquets to Georgian balls, Victorian luncheons to Edwardian tea dances.
Over the centuries flagons of ale, goblets of wine, flutes of champagne and copious cups of tea have been consumed beneath her eaves to the sounds of ladies’ chattering and gentlemen's laughter flooding through her walls.
Pilgrims Rest is available for weddings and parties all year around. When the sun in shining your guests can flood out into the beautiful tended rose garden and sunny walled herb garden. As the evenings draw in, stoke up the fires, light some candles then watch as she sparkles into life.
The Pilgrims Rest...be a part of her history.
